Game Preview: Mets @ Phillies

The Mets go to Logan Verrett again today as they start game two of the their series with the Phillies. Just as a recap, Logan has landed himself into the rotation as the current stopgap between Harvey being out for the season and when Wheeler can come back (barring a promotion of a minor leaguer or a trade). He’s 3-6 over 24 games and 6 starts this season with a 4.34 ERA while logging 56.0 innings. His return to the rotation before the break wasn’t that good as he allowed 5 ER over 6.2 innings to the Nationals. He has one start against the Phillies this year (and it was in Philly) where he allowed no runs over 6.0 innings and 6 hits. The Phillies have the following numbers against Logan:

  • Galvis 2-6
  • Herrera 0-5
  • Blanco 3-5, 2B
  • Rupp 1-4
  • Franco 1-3
  • Howard 0-3
  • Asche 0-2

The Mets will get a look at Jerad Eickhoff who is tied with Matt Harvey for leading the league in losses at 10 (record 6-10). Eickhoff has pitched 18 games and 109.0 innings with a 3.80 ERA. He is coming off his worst start of the season where he allowed 8 ER over 5.1 innings in Colorado. Before that he had an ERA of 2.25 over 44.0 innings, 7 starts. Two of his first three starts this season were against the Mets and they were average to good allowing 3 runs, 2 earned in 5.0 innings to open the season, and 2 ER over 7.0 innings 10 days later. The Mets have the following numbers against Jerad:

  • Granderson 1-11, HR
  • Cespedes 2-12, 3B
  • K Johnson 4-9, 2B
  • Flores 1-6
  • Walker 1-6
  • Cabrera 3-5, 2B
  • d’Arnaud 0-4
  • Colon 1-4
  • Lagares 0-3
