Game Preview: Mets @ Marlins

The Mets will play their 7th game against the Marlins this season as they close out their four game set with the Marlins? Are you tired of seeing the Marlins? I am. Anyway, Happy Easter and Happy Harvey Day! Let’s dive in.

A lot more eyes than usual will be on Matt Harvey tonight. Harvey made the start in the game in Philly when the Mets launched 7 homers. The only sour note on the game is Harvey left with an out to go in the 6th inning with a tight hamstring after covering first. The Mets have been saying its minor all week but I’ll believe when I see it. He’s 2-0 so far this season allowing 4 ER over 12.1 innings while walking 1 and striking out 10. Last year against the Marlins he went 0-1 in two games allowing 7 runs, 6 earned in 10.2 innings while walking none and striking out 7. The Marlins have the following numbers against Harvey:

  • Yelich 4-18
  • Ozuna 5-17, 3B
  • Stanton 2-15
  • Dietrich 4-14, 2 2B
  • Realmuto 5-12
  • Bour 1-10, HR
  • Gordon 3-10
  • Koehler 3-4 (Really)

The Mets bats will get a look at Dan Straily who is 1-1 this season over 2 games and 8.1 innings allowing 9 runs, 8 earned. Last year as a member of the Reds he went 14-8 over 34 games, 31 starts, totaling 191.1 innings with a 3.76 ERA, his best year in the majors by far. Fun note, he’s been on 5 different teams in the last 5 years (Oakland, Chicago Cubs, Houston, Cincy, Miami). The last time he faced the Mets was in 2014 where he allowed 7 runs, 5 earned in 5.1 innings. The Mets have the following numbers against him:

  • Reyes 2-7
  • Cabrera 2-3, 2B
  • d’Arnaud 1-3
  • Duda 0-1, 2 BB
  • Granderson 0-3
  • Bruce 1-2, HR
  • Lagares 1-2, 2B

Let’s Go Mets!
