Game Preview: Mets @ Phillies

The Mets look to continue their push for home field advantage in the NLDS tonight as they start their last 2015 series against the Phillies. On Sunday the Mets started a lineup that looked similar to a June lineup (which shows how far this team has come) as players rested off their celebrations from the night before. That lineup still broke out in a big way as they rolled through the Reds completing the 4 game sweep on the coattails of a great outing by Jacob deGrom.

Bartolo Colon gets the nod tonight. He is 14-12 over 31 games, 30 starts, totaling 188.2 innings with a 4.15 ERA and a league leading 209 hits. Colon has been fairly average since tossing his complete game shut out at the start of the month pitching 18.2 innings with a 3.86 ERA. He is 4-0 in as many starts against the Phillies this year posting a 2.33 ERA over 27.0 innings of work. The Phillies have the following numbers against Bartolo:

  • Howard 5-24, 2 HR
  • Ruiz 5-18, 2B
  • Brown 2-15, 2B
  • Asche 3-13, 2 2B
  • Galvis 4-12, 2B
  • Herrera 1-10
  • Francoeur 1-8

The Mets bats will get a look at David Buchanan who is 2-9 over 13 starts this season and 63.1 innings with a 7.96 ERA. Despite his ERA He’s been better in his last two starts as he allowed 3 ER over 11.0 innings. His second start of the season way back in April was against the Mets as he allowed 5 ER over 5.2 innings. The Mets have the following numbers against David:

  • Wright 4-14
  • Granderson 2-10
  • Lagares 3-11, 2B
  • Duda 3-12, 2 2B
  • Flores 2-9, 2B
