Game Preview: Mets @ Phillies

After being on the road for 10 games, and then home for 5 games, the Mets are back on the road today! This might be the shortest road trip possible mile wise as the Mets will travel down 95 and play 4 games in Philly and then play two games in the Bronx.

Jacob deGrom will take the mound for the Mets today. He is 12-5 over 22 starts and 144.2 innings with a 3.36 ERA, 3.67 FIP and 1.168 WHIP. Most pitchers on the Mets right now would take the line from deGrom’s last start but he’s probably frustrated by it as it was not-deGrom like. He allowed 5 hits and 3 walks over 5.0 innings leading to 3 runs against the Dodgers. Against the Phillies this year he has allowed 3 runs off 9 hits and 3 walks in 13.0 innings. His last start against the Phillies was one of the better starts this season where he allowed only 1 run off 3 hits and a walk in 7.0 innings while striking out 12. The Phillies have the following numbers against Jacob:

  • Herrera 4-21
  • Galvis 6-19
  • Hernandes 2-10, 3 BB
  • Franco 2-12
  • Rupp 1-8, HR, 2 BB
  • Blanco 1-5

The Mets bats will try to find positive consistency against Vince Velaquez who is 2-6 over 14 starts and 71.0 innings with a 4.82 ERA, 5.34 FIP and 1.465 WHIP. The last two numbers are significantly higher than his career numbers (4.23 FIP, 1.354 WHIP). His last two starts have been better than his average numbers as he has allowed 9 hits and 2 runs over 12.0 innings. He faced the Mets in back to back starts in April where he allowed 8 runs off 10 hits and 7 walks in 11.0 innings. The Mets have the following numbers against Vince:

  • Cabrera 5-11, 2B, BB
  • Cespedes 2-8, 2B, HR, 2 BB
  • Granderson 0-7, 2 BB
  • Walker 2-11, BB
  • d’Arnaud 1-9
  • Bruce (yes, I know he’s traded his numbers are important here) 3-9, 2B, HR
  • Conforto 4-7, 2 HR, BB

Let’s Go Mets!
