Jae Seo will again try for his first win against Montreal when the New York Mets continue a four-game series with the Expos at Olympic Stadium.
The South Korean right-hander is 0-4 with 5.29 ERA in seven games, including six starts, against the Expos, and will be facing them for the third time this season.
Seo took the loss on April 10 at San Juan, Puerto Rico, after allowing the game’s only run in two innings of relief. Last Wednesday, he gave up three runs and eight hits over six innings in the Mets’ 5-4 win.
Seo will now try to help New York build off its 4-2 win Tuesday that snapped a four-game losing streak. Tom Glavine got his first win in more than six weeks, and Mike Cameron hit a three-run homer as New York ending Montreal’s season-high five-game winning streak.
Glavine allowed two runs and seven hits over six innings for his first win since beating Kansas City 5-2 on June 13. He had been 0-5 in seven starts since as the Mets scored a total of just 15 runs while he maintained a 3.83 ERA during that stretch.
“When you get on a bad streak, sometimes the hardest one is the first one to get things back going again, so hopefully this one will get us going again,” said the All-Star left-hander, who has a 2.61 ERA this season.
The win was the Mets’ fourth in 14 games following a stretch in which they won seven of nine.
Brad Wilkerson tied his career high with four hits for the Expos.
“It feels good to swing the bat the way I did, but Glavine pitched a good game,” Wilkerson said. “He kept guys off base and kept the ball down in the zone. It’s hard to get anything manufactured. He was giving up singles all day and we just didn’t come through with the big hit.”
