Scouting Report:

Pirates: Duke posted one of his best performances of the season his last time out, though he suffered his sixth straight loss, with Brandon Webb going the distance against him in a 3-1 Arizona win. Duke finished seven innings and allowed just four hits, while striking out a season-high six. The two-run homer he gave up proved to be the difference in the game. The outing was a much-needed step in the right direction for Duke, who had given up at least five runs in each of his last five starts. Duke is 2-0 with a 1.77 ERA in three career starts against the Mets.

Mets: Martinez settled down after a shaky start on Wednesday night against the Padres. The righty gave up a home run on the first pitch of the game, then surrendered another just two batters later to put the Mets in an early hole. But he retired the next eight batters he faced and allowed just two more hits through 6 1/3 innings. He exited the game after throwing 102 pitches in just his second game since July 12. Martinez was tagged for three runs (two earned) with three strikeouts and three walks. Despite the loss, the righty said he has been able to make adjustments and improve through his last two starts.
