The Mets will stick with Chris Capuano as the starter Wednesday night after considering an extra day of rest for him. Capuano pitched a complete game last Friday but said he was fine to stay on turn. Miguel Batista, called up from Triple-A Buffalo on Friday, will be trying for career victory No. 100 in tomorrow's start. Batista, 40, has a .469 (99-112) winning percentage in 17 major-league seasons with 10 teams.
