Game Preview: Marlins vs Mets

Last night was rough. The Mets led the game at one point 5-1 but had a meltdown in the top of the 6th where they allowed 5 runs to score. They were able to tie the game in the bottom frame and pull the game to extras. The umpiring was also pretty crappy but attributing it to umpiring never feels right. Today the Mets will try to take the series from the fish, end the homestand strong and improve to 3 games over .500 again. Tom Koehler gets the start for the Marlins as he faces off against Dillon Gee.

Dillon Gee is 1-1 over 5 starts, 32.2 innings with a 3.58 ERA. In his last two starts, where he has made both of his decisions on the year, he has pitched 13.2 innings, allowing 2 ER, 9 hits, 2 walks and 7 strikeouts. Last year he made two starts against the Marlins where he allowed 4 earned runs over 12.1 innings, an ERA of 2.91. The Marlins have the following numbers against Gee:

  • G Jones 4-13, 2B
  • Stanton 1-7, HR
  • Solano 1-6
  • Dobbs 2-5, HR
  • R Johnson 1-3, 2B
  • McGehee 1-3, 2B

The Mets bats will get a look at Tom Koehler who is off to a career start with a 2.13 ERA over 4 games and 25.1 innings of work. (As compared to last year’s 4.41 ERA in 143.0 innings and the year before where he had an ERA above 5). In three of his four starts this year he has allowed exactly 2 earned runs and one start he has shutout his opponent and in each start he went at least 6 innings.
