Gameday Thread: Nationals vs Mets, Game 3 (L)
« Topic Start: August 13, 2006, 03:43:27 AM »

Steve Trachsel, RHP (11-5, 5.03)
Mets (70-45)

His ERA is higher than 5.00. He hasn't completed the seventh inning in 11 starts, or the sixth in six of the 11. But when Trachsel pitches, the Mets usually win -- nine times in those 11 starts, to be exact. From June 9 through Tuesday night when he defeated the Padres at Shea, Trachsel won more games -- nine -- than any pitcher in the big leagues. What else need be said?

VS.


Tony Armas, RHP (7-8, 5.04)
Nationals (51-65)

Armas hasn't won a game since July 23 and is looking to snap a personal three-games losing streak. In his last start, Armas frustrated manager Frank Robinson by continually falling behind in the count and having to throw 104 pitches -- only 59 of which were for strikes. Armas lasted six innings and gave up four runs -- two earned -- nine hits.
