Game Preview: Mets @ Nationals

The Mets lost to the Nationals yesterday in a clunker. Gsellman allowed 5 runs early and it looked like a lost afternoon for the Amazin’s. Eventually the Mets brought it to 6-4 with two outs and the go-ahead run at the plate in Taijeron, but he grounded out and the bullpen imploded after that. You know what the Mets need after dropping yesterday’s game against the Nationals? TWO SUNDAY GAMES! The Mets have been horrendous on Sundays this year and today they will be faced with the tall task of the two of them.

The Mets will send out “I’m not fun Tommy Milone and my nickname on my jersey is Milone” (unless he has changed this, I’m not sure, I try to avoid Milone news). Milone is 0-3 this year with the Mets over 4 starts and 16.2 innings allowing 21 runs, 19 earned off of 24 hits and 8 walks. His last start out was his first since the end of May and he allowed 6 runs, 5 earned over 4.2 innings from 5 hits and a walk. The Nationals have the following numbers against Tommy:

  • Kendrick 10-29, 2B, 2 HR
  • De Aza 0-7, BB
  • Wieters 0-6, 2 BB
  • Lind 0-4
  • Rendon 0-4
  • Lobaton 1-2, 2B

The Mets bats draw rookie Erick Fedde who will be making his third major league start. He is 0-1 in two starts and 9.1 innings allowing 11 runs from 18 hits and 6 walks. His last start, which was 20 days ago, was better than his major league debut. In his last start he allowed 4 runs over 5.1 (debut was 7 runs over 4.0 innings). In the minors this year he is 4-5 over 90.1 innings between AAA and AA with a good 3.69 ERA and 3.89 RAvg. This will be Erick’s first time facing the Mets.

Let’s Go Mets!
