Game Preview: Mets @ Diamondbacks

After not dropping 4 series in the row, the Mets laid a goose egg this weekend as they got swept by the Brewers and now are on a 4 game losing streak. Yesterday the Mets had a 7-1 lead at one point but squandered it as the bullpen went into full meltdown mode. Rather than focusing on that, let’s file that under “things that happen to the Mets when the play in Milwaukee” and move on to Arizona.

For the second time this season, Zack Wheeler will face a “Zack” (first time I believe it was a Zac, but I’m not sure). This will be the first time this year that both starting pitchers spell “Zack” the same way. Now that we got that fun fact out of the way, Wheeler is 2-2 over 6 games and 32.1 innings with a 4.18 ERA, 4.22 FIP and 1.206 WHIP. In his last two official starts he has allowed 3 runs, 2 earned over 6.2 innings however he has allowed 8 walks which have been blowing up his pitch count. Arizona has the following numbers against him:

  • Goldschmidt 2-9, BB
  • Blanco 1-7, 2B
  • Owings 2-6, 2B
  • Pollock 0-5, BB
  • Mathis 0-4, BB
  • De La Rosa 0-1

The Mets bats will try to move Heaven and Earth against Godley today who is 1-0 in two starts and 12.0 innings with a 2.25 ERA, 3.09 FIP and 1.000 WHIP. Last year he was 4-5 in 27 games and 9 starts for the Diamondbacks with a 6.39 ERA, 4.97 FIP and 1.487 WHIP. He picked up a win two game (one start) against the Mets last year holding the Mets to 5 hits and 2 walks with 2 runs over 8.1 innings. The Mets have the following numbers against Zack:

  • Bruce 1-6
  • Reyes 1-4
  • Granderson 0-3
  • TJ Rivera 1-3, 2B
  • Flores 0-1
  • Reynolds 0-1
  • R Rivera 0-1
