Game Preview: Dodgers vs Mets

It’s been an interesting last 24 hours for the Mets. Niese had a rough start, although its confusing why he was pitching as his wife was giving birth at the same time. Anyway, Conforto made his major league debut, got an RBI. Oh, and the Mets traded Gant and Whaler to the Braves and picked up Juan Uribe and Kelly Johnson. So things are happening?

Despite all of the news in the last day, it is also Matt Harvey Day. Harvey is 8-7 over 18 starts and 118.1 innings with a 3.19 ERA. Harvey had a rough start coming back from the All-Star break where he allowed 5 runs, 4 earned over 7.0 innings after a string of good starts except for one, which was against the Dodgers where he allowed 3 ER over 5.0 innings. The Dodgers have the following numbers against Harvey:

  • Rollins 3-16, 2 2B, HR
  • Gonzalez 2-8, HR
  • Ethier 2-5
  • Puig 3-5, 2B
  • Callaspo 1-3
  • Crawford 0-2

For the Dodgers: at this time I’m not sure. I have to leave and the Dodgers haven’t announced their start yet. The most likely pitcher at this point would be Zach Lee making his major league debut. He is 7-3 in the minors with a 2.36 ERA over 12 starts and 68.2 innings. The Dodgers rotation is in flux right now with a demotion to Beachy earlier in the week and Greinke going on paternity leave (to pitch tomorrow). There was a possibility that he was going to pitch today. Of course, it really could be someone else making the start today, good luck to the Mets!

Lets Go Mets!
