Matchup for G97 - Mets @ Astros

Russ Ortiz
Russ Ortiz takes the hill for the Astros tonight in game 2 of this series with the Mets. After an eventful six days before the All-Star Break where he got rocked by the Giants for 8ER in 5.2IP on July 4, and then got yanked after 3IP against Washington - and subsequently ripped Cecil Cooper - Ortiz threw another quality start, his third in five starts. Let's see how it rolls out:
