Game Preview: Mets @ Astros

Yesterday was just a heart pounding game for the Mets. In case you missed it, the Mets were gliding through the game nicely until Todd Helton tied the game on a pinch hit grand slam, and at that point it was a back and forth battle through the 11th inning when the Mets got ahead and took the series. The Mets overall in their last series scored 21 runs over 3 games and now go to Houston for another series in a hitter’s ballpark. Tonight R.A. Dickey will take on Bud Norris and Astros.

Dickey is 3-1 0n the season with a 4.44 ERA. In his last start, he needed to rebound off of a bad start in Atlanta (4.1 IP, 8 ER) and he did just that as he allowed 1 ER over 7 innings as he picked up his third win of the year. Last season Dickey pitched 13.1 innings against Houston where he allowed 10 ER over 19 hits. The Astros have the following numbers against Dickey:

Lee 8-21, 3 2B, HR (Suffering a Sprain)
Johnson 4-14, 2B
Schaefer 3-7
Snyder 0-5

The Mets will look to continue the hit parade against Bud Norris who is 1-1 on the season over 4 games with an ERA of 5.84 over 24.2 innings. Last season Bud had two no decisions against the Mets over 13.1 innings with an ERA of 4.73. The Mets have the following numbers against Bud Norris over his career:

Wright 0-8
Thole 2-8, HR
Davis 2-8, 2B
Dickey 2-6
Hairston 1-5, HR
Murphy 2-6, HR
