Game Preview: Mets @ Nationals

The Mets got exactly what they needed out of Colon last night to help erase the feelings from the last two games against the Nationals last week. Colon had a strong outing and was backed by a 5-run Mets inning (featuring a 3-run jack from David Wright) and later a homer from Cespedes (who now leads the league). Now the Mets call on Harvey on a day they need him against Strasburg for round 2. In case you haven’t heard yet, tonight is Support Harvey Night hosted by The 7 Line, who are making an emergency trip down 95. Matt is 3-6 over 6 starts and 48.1 innings with a 5.77 ERA. His last outing (against the Nationals) was the worst of the season going 2.2 innings allowing 8 hits and 9 runs, 6 earned while walking 2 and striking out 2. The Nationals have the following numbers against Harvey:

  • Harper 1-22
  • Werth 4-20, 2B
  • Zimmerman 4-19, 2B, HR
  • Taylor 4-18, 2B
  • Rendon 5-15, 2B
  • Ramos 4-13, 2B
  • Revere 4-13, 3B
  • Robinson 4-11, 2B

Strasburg is having quite the season. He is now 7-0 over 9 starts and 61.0 innings with a 2.80 ERA. His last start was the first in a week or so that could be ranked as “great” where he went 6.0 innings allowing 1 ER with 6 hits, 1 walk while striking out 10. That start was against the Mets who have the following numbers against Strasburg:

  • Wright 7-25
  • Duda 2-15, HR
  • Granderson3-16
  • Walker 5-14, HR
  • Lagares 2-12
  • Cespedes 2-5
