World Series Game 4: Royals vs Mets

The Mets struck back! After dropping the first two games in Kansas City, the Mets came out strong in the first game in Queens. Thor started the game with a high and inside pitch and David Wright followed with a two run shot. Things looked rough in the second inning, but the Mets rebounded and then took over as they marched to a 9-3 win. Tonight the kid from Long Island gets the start against the former Met, Chris Young.

Steven Matz in the regular season went 4-0 over 6 starts and 35.2 innings with a 2.27 ERA. He is the game 4 man for the Mets this post season. In his game 4 against the Dodgers he pitched 5.0 innings allowing 3 ER and in his second game 4 against the Cubs he allowed 1 ER over 4.2 innings. Both starts he walked 2 and both starts he struck out 4. He has never faced the Royals in a major league game or anyone on their roster in a major league game.

The Mets draw the giant in Chris Young, who pitched a strong outing in the first game of the World Series. Chris Young has a ridiculous release point which is a strength his first time through the order, so here’s hoping that the Mets still remember what this looks like from Tuesday┬ánight. On the regular season he is 11-6 over 34 games, 18 starts, with a 3.06 ERA. He pitched in the first ALDS game from the 3rd inning to the 6th allowing 1 ER. He hten started the 4th ALCS game allowing 2 ER over 4.2 innings. Finally, as noted before, he pitched three scoreless innings against the Mets on Tuesday. The Mets have the following numbers against Chris:

  • Cespedes 1-12, 2B
  • Wright 1-10
  • Uribe 2-11, 2B
  • K Johnson 2-11
  • Cuddyer 2-5, 2 2B
  • Murphy 0-3
  • Granderson 0-3

Let’s Go Mets!
