The Mets had a forgettable weekend against the Marlins after a forgettable week against the Yankees and look to the Diamondbacks tonight. Yesterday things were going ok until the 7th inning where the floodgates opened and the Marlins were able to take a 6-1 lead that the Mets just couldn’t overcome.
Robert Gsellman gets the start for the Mets. He is 5-5 over 18 games and 15 starts in 81.1 innings with a 5.98 ERA, 5.18 FIP and 1.598 WHIP. His last start against the Yankees wasn’t terrible as he allowed 3 runs, 2 earned over 5.1 innings off 4 hits and 3 walks. It was his best start since June 10th. Back on May 17th he faced the Diamondbacks allowing 1 run off 1 hit and a walk in one inning of relief (blown save). The Diamondbacks have the following numbers against him:
- Drury 0-1
- Goldschmidt 0-0, BB
- Lamb 0-1
The Mets get a look at Taijuan Walker who came over from the Mariners in a 5 person trade back in November. Walker is 6-7 over 20 games and 115.0 innings with a 3.83 ERA, 4.21 ERA and 1.313 WHIP. He is 0-3 in his four starts and 21.2 innings allowing 24 hits and 8 walks leading to 16 runs, 13 earned (5.40 ERA). Walker hasn’t faced the majority of the Mets lineup, which makes sense given the moves the Mets have made over the last month. Cespedes is 1-6 with a homer and Lagares is 0-2. No one else has seen him.
Let’s Go Mets!
