The Mets are still undefeated at home and off five wins on the bounce overall. They’re looking good to make it six straight Ws tonight as they host a Marlins team that has won only two of its last six games.

David Phelps will toe the slab for the Fish making his first start of the year. He’s hurled a total of one inning over two relief appearances on the season, over which he’s given up four runs on four hits with two walks. He was 5-5 with a 4.38 ERA over 32 outings, 17 starts last year and 1-4 with a 5.30 ERA away from home. The Mets will counter with veteran Bartolo Colon who’s off to a great start with back-to-back wins behind a 2.77 ERA. He posted a 15-13 record with a rather swollen 4.09 ERA last year, but hurled 14 2/3 innings against the Fish surrendering only four runs on 19 hits with 12 strikeouts. More importantly, he’s hot now and it’s not easy to get a grip of the 41 year old right-hander when he’s on his A-game.

The Marlins are 2-8 in their last 10 games vs. a right-handed starter and also 2-8 in their last 10 games as an underdog. The Mets meanwhile are 6-1 in Colons last seven starts with 4 days of rest and 6-1 in his last seven starts against a team with a losing record.
