Game Preview: Mets @ Phillies

The Mets start their first road series in 2017 today as they head down 95 to Philly to meet the Phillies. Coming off the late game last night, the Mets avoided being swept and returned to .500 on the young season. Meanwhile, Philly beat the Nationals for a second straight day as their offense has been clicking. The Mets on the other hand, had a couple of solo shots last night and one rally, but it still feels like our offense is stuck in neutral.

Jacob deGrom didn’t pick up a decision in his first game of the season but he allowed only 2 hits and no runs over 6.0 innings while waking 1 and striking out 6. Jacob went 2-0 in as many starts against the Phillies last year allowing 1 ER over 15.0 innings while allowing 6 hits and striking out 13 (1 walk).

  • Herrera 3-15
  • Galvis 5-14
  • Kendrick 1-13

  • Rupp 1-6, HR

The Mets bats will take a crack at Jerad Eickhoff who is 0-1 over 6.2 innings with 5 hits and 2 ER in his first start of the season. Last year, his first full season in the majors, he went 11-14 over 33 starts and 197.1 innings with a 3.65 ERA. Last year he went 0-2 in 4 starts against the Mets holding the Mets to 8 runs, 7 earned over 24.0 innings (2.63 ERA) while walking 7 and striking out 23.
