The New York Mets (13-11) look to avoid a sweep today against the Houston Astros (10-14) this afternoon at Minute Maid Park in Houston at 2:05 PM ET.
Mets lineup: Tejada 6, Murphy 4, Wright 5, Hairston 7, Duda 9, Torres, 8, Davis 3, Thole 2, Schwinden 1

RHP Chris Shwinden (0-0, 11.75 ERA) will take the hill for the Mets.
LHP Wandy Rodriguez (2-2, 1.72 ERA) will take the hill for the Astros
- If Terry wants to sit Kirk, Andres Torres should leadoff. Tejada has been thriving in the two spot, as has Murphy in the three spot, and Wright in the cleanup spot.
- Let’s NOT get swept by the Astros because quite honestly the Astros suck.
