Game Preview: Giants vs Mets

Last night was pretty great! The Mets set a few team records last night (including but not limited to): most runs scored in an inning (12), most RBI’s recorded by one player in an inning (6-Cespedes), and most consecutive games with an extra-base hit (9-Cespedes). I still remember where I was watching the game where the Mets scored 11 runs in one inning in 2006 at Wrigley and I’m sure everybody watching the game last night will have similar memories. Overshadowed by the offense explosion in the 3rd inning was another strong start by Steven Matz, Logan Verrett lowering his ERA to 0.52 on the season.

Jacob deGrom heads to the mound today to keep the good times rolling. He’s 2-0 in as many starts on the season logging 11.2 innings with a 1.54 ERA. His last start was his first coming back from his lat injury. He allowed only 1 ER over 5.2 innings while scattering 8 hits. Last year he had a tremendous start against the Giants holding them scoreless and to 2 hits over 8.0 innings while walking none and striking out 10. The Giants have the following numbers against deGrom:

  • Belt 2-5
  • Crawford 0-6
  • Panik 0-6
  • Pence 1-6, 2B
  • Span 2-5
  • Blanco 0-3
  • Duffy 0-3
  • Posey 0-3

Matt Cain will try to not allow 12 runs in a single inning tonight. He’s 0-2 on the season over 4 starts and 21.0 innings with an ERA of 6.43. His first start of the season was good, allowing 2 ER over 6.0 innings. Since then he has allowed 13 ER over 15.0 innings. Last year, Peavy had a very good start against the Mets as he held the Amazin’s scoreless over 6.0 innings and only allowing 2 hits while striking out 7. The Mets have the following numbers vs Cain:
