Game Preview: Mets @ Marlins

One weekend can make a huge difference. Going into Friday’s game it looked like the entire Mets world was falling apart. The Mets are now on a three game winning streak and go into Miami to keep it going! The last time the Mets swept a three game series was Philly near the start of the season. They then went to Miami, took game 1 and lost the next 3. The Mets look to avoid that pattern by winning early and often this series.

To further the pattern laid out above, Robert Gsellman was the first pitcher in the Mets vs Miami series in April after the Mets swept the Phillies. He’s the starter again tonight!. Gsellman is 5-5 over 16 games and 13 starts with a 6.04 ERA, 5.27 FIP and 1.616 WHIP over 73.0 innings. Gsellman is coming off back to back poor starts where he allowed 15 runs, 14 earned and 20 hits in his last 9.1 innings of work. Those two games ended a streak starting around May 20th of good outings for Robert. Miami hasn’t been the best for Gsellman this year as he has allowed 14 runs, 10 earned over 14.2 innings. The Marlins have the following numbers against Gsellman:

  • Stanton 5-7, HR, BB
  • Bour 0-7, BB
  • Ozuna 4-8, 3 HR (2.125 OPS)
  • Gordon 2-5
  • Yelich 1-5, BB
  • Ellis 1-4, BB
  • Realmuto 3-5, 2B,  3B
  • Dietrich 0-4

The Mets bats will take a crack at Dan Straily who is 5-4 over 15 games and 84.0 innings with a 3.43 ERA, 3.74 FIP and 1.095 WHIP. Each of those stats are better than his career numbers as Dan may be having the best season so far in his career. After allowing 7 runs over the first 11.0 innings and 2 games in June, he has now allowed 1 run over his last 12.1 innings and 2 games. His first good start of the season was against the Mets this year where he held the Mets scoreless and hitless over 5.1 innings despite allowing 5 walks. The Mets have the following numbers against Dan:

  • Reyes 2-8, 2 BB
  • Granderson 0-6
  • d’Arnaud 1-5
  • Duda –3, 2 BB
  • Bruce 1-4, HR
  • Flores 1-4
  • Cabrera 2-3, 2B
  • Cespedes 0-2, BB

Let’s Go Mets!
