Game Preview: Marlins vs Mets

The Mets look to move beyond a series against the Nationals where the Nationals hit 13 homers and the Mets hit none by welcoming the Marlins into town. Harang made his first start in his Mets career last night allowing 3 solo homers over 4 hits. Despite being roughed up, and the Mets eventually losing 7-2, he did have 10 strikeouts. Tonight Jon Niese takes the mound against Brad Hand.

Jon Niese is 6-7 over 20 starts this year with a 3.86 ERA while pitching 116.2 innings with 86 strikeouts. In his last start he snapped a streak of four great starts that saw him pitch 27.2 innings with a 1.30 ERA by allowing 5 ER over 6 innings (which as you can tell by the Math was more runs allowed in that one game than his previous four). He has a 2.13 ERA over 2 games and 12.2 innings against the Marlins this season, and the Marlins have the following numbers against him:

Polanco 12-35, 5 2B
Stanton 5-15
Morrison 3-9, 2B
