New York Mets at San Francisco Giants, 4:10PM ET

John Maine can't be too critical of his recent results, but the New York Mets right-hander would like to make it to the seventh inning in his next outing.

Maine tries to win his fourth straight start Thursday night as the Mets take on the San Francisco Giants to begin a 10-game road trip.

New York (18-15) opens this four-game set after losing 8-7 in 12 innings to Atlanta on Wednesday. Fernando Tatis hit his seventh career grand slam and Gary Sheffield had a tying home run in the eighth, but New York finished 6-2 on its homestand as Ken Takahashi gave up a homer in the 12th to Martin Prado.

Maine (3-2, 4.54 ERA), who has gone six innings in each of his last three starts, looks to give the Mets' bullpen a much-needed break after seven relievers pitched 7 1-3 innings Wednesday.

Los Angeles Dodgers at Philadelphia Phillies, 1:05PM ET

Cole Hamels looked like the reigning World Series and NL championship series MVP in his last start.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are very familiar with facing the Philadelphia Phillies hurler when he's at his most dominant.

Looking to build off a solid start, Hamels gets the call as the Phillies close out a three-game series with the Dodgers on Thursday at Citizens Bank Park.

After struggling with freak injuries to start 2009, Hamels (1-2, 6.17 ERA) recorded his first victory for Philadelphia (16-15) since Game 1 of the World Series, allowing two runs and three hits over six innings on Friday in a 10-6 win against Atlanta.

MLB Free Pick: Los Angeles | Best Line: +115 SPORTSBETTING
