Game Preview: Marlins vs Mets

Cespedes the hero!

The Mets started a critical series with the Marlins last night and with the game tied heading into the 10th inning, and two outs already on the board, Cespedes crushed his 27th homer of the season, on a day where the pitching was there all night, but not necessarily the hitting. Tonight the Mets look to keep it going as Seth Lugo takes on Tom Koehler.

Seth Lugo is 1-2 over 11 games and 2 starts this season with an ERA of 2.51 over 28.2 innings. His last two outings were his two starts of the season where he first allowed 3 ER over 6.2 innings and then allowed no runs over 5.0 innings. In 1.1 innings against the Marlins in relief on July 23rd, he allowed 1 ER over 2 hits and 2 walks in 1.1 innings. The Marlins have the following numbers against Seth:

  • Hechavarria 1-1
  • C Johnson 0-1
  • Prado 1-1
  • Realmuto 0-1
  • Yelich 0-1

Tom Koehler is 9-9 over 26 games and 145.0 innings with an ERA of 3.85 this season, heading for his best season season since 2014, and possibly his best season in his career. Although things haven’t been that great of late as he has allowed 9 runs, 8 earned over his last three starts and 18.0 innings of work.  He has already faced the Mets twice this year allowing 5 ER over 11.0 innings and 13 hits (4.09 ERA). The Mets have the following numbers against Tom:

  • Granderson 6-28, HR
  • d’Arnaud 7-17, 2 2B, HR
  • Flores 4-15, 2 2B
  • Cespedes 6-14, 3 2B
  • Walker 3-10, 2B
  • K Johnson 3-12, 2B
  • Loney 3-10, 2B
  • Cabrera 3-7, HR
  • Reyes 1-3, HR
