Game Preview: Mets @ Diamondbacks

Baseball is still not clicking for the Mets on all cylinders as they dropped another game last night. Last night, their starter gave up all the runs and the bullpen was able to keep it together, but it didn’t matter as the offense couldn’t over come the 5 runs that Milone allowed (but Grandy homered, despite being lowered to 8th in the lineup). So the Mets have some work to do today as Matt Harvey takes the mound against Patrick Corbin.

Matt Harvey is 2-3 over 7 games and 40.0 innings this year with a 5.63 ERA, 6.47 FIP and 1.425 WHIP. His last three starts have been torrid as he has allowed 17 runs over his last 14.2 innings (10.43 ERA). Prior to that, he had a 2.84 ERA over his first four starts. He last faced the Diamondbacks in 2015 where he allowed 11 hits and 5 walks leading to 4 runs in 14.0 innings (2.57 ERA). The Diamondbacks have the following numbers against Matt:

  • Goldschmidt 1-8, HR, BB
  • Blanco 0-7
  • Descalso 1-5, BB
  • Owings 0-6
  • Peralta 1-5, HR, BB
  • Tomas 2-6
  • Mathis 0-4

The Mets bats will get a chance at Patrick Corbin who is 3-4 over 8 starts and 45.1 innings with a 4.17 ERA, 4.14 FIP and 1.390 WHIP. May has been rough to Corbin. He started the month allowing 8 runs over 4.0 innings in Colorado and then allowed 4 runs over 6 innings in Pittsburgh. Last year he only pitched 2.0 innings against the Mets where he allowed 1 hit and a 1 walk and nothing else. The Mets have the following numbers against Corbin:

  • Bruce 2-11, HR, 3 BB
  • Lagares 1-9, 2B
  • Reyes 4-8, 2B, BB
  • Flores 06
  • R Rivera 1-4
  • Walker 0-3
  • Duda 1-2, HR
  • Harvey 1-2, HR

Let’s Go Mets!
