Cliff Floyd’s left Achilles heel is bothering him, so he was replaced by Chris Woodward in left field. Floyd is day-to-day.
Here’s who’s going for the Mets today:
SS Jose Reyes
C Paul Lo Duca
CF Carlos Beltran
1B Carlos Delgado
3B David Wright
RF Xavier Nady
LF Chris Woodward
2B Jose Valentin
LHP Tom Glavine
Glavine (11-4, 3.69) admits some anxiousness as he seeks his first victory since June 23, at Toronto.
“I haven’t won in awhile and I want to win,” Glavine said. “I’m not terribly upset with how I’ve pitched, but I haven’t been the beneficiary of things going my way.”
Glavine is 1-1 with a 0.60 ERA in two starts this season against the Braves. Overall, he is 3-9 with a 5.32 ERA lifetime against Atlanta.
