Game Preview: Yankees vs Mets

The Mets and Yankees play the rubber game of the series on the National Stage tonight as the Mets look to rebound from yesterday’s loss. The Yankees really needed to win yesterday’s game and they took advantage of the two bad pitches that Syndergaard threw (throwing my biases aside, that may have been the best 5 ER over 6 IP outing, I’ve ever seen). The Mets will look to wake up their offense that for the first time in a while, looked a little asleep. On top of those story lines, we have the rematch of the April game against Sabathia and Harvey.

Matt Harvey will have a limited outing today. On the season he is 12-7 over 171.2 innings over 26 starts with a 2.88 ERA. His last start, his first after his innings controversy, was abysmal as he allowed 7 ER over 5.1 innings, but the Mets eventually won the game. Way back in April he had a fantastic start against the Yankees allowed 2 ER over 8.2 innings while striking out 7. The Yankees have the following numbers against Harvey:

  • Headley 1-8, HR
  • Gardner 2-7
  • Drew 1-4, 2B
  • McCann 0-3
  • A-Rod 0-4
  • Beltran 1-3
  • Ellsbury 0-3

Sabathia is 4-9 on the season with a 4.93 ER over 26 starts and 149.2 innings. He’s been better in September allowing 1 ER, 3 runs total over 11.1 innings and overall has been better since August because before that he was terrible. Against the Mets earlier this year he allowed 7 ER over 5.0 innings. The Mets have the following numbers against CC:

  • Cuddyer 15-64, 4 2B, 2 HR
  • Uribe 9-47, 2 3B, HR
  • Granderson 4-22
  • K Johnson 5-15
  • Cespedes 1-11
  • Wright 4-12, 2B
  • Duda 2-6, HR
  • Tejada 2-5, 2B
  • Lagares 3-3, 3B

Let’s Go Mets!
