Game Preview: Reds vs Mets

The Mets took the opener against the Reds yesterday! Matt Harvey wasn’t terrible last night and Nimmo hit two homers (including back to back blasts with Juan Lagares) leading to 7-2 win. Tonight Seth Lugo will look to keep that momentum going against Amir Garrett of the Reds.

Seth Lugo is 5-4 over 14 games and 13 starts with 77.1 innings of work posting a 5.00 ERA, 4.12 FIP and 1.435 WHIP. It is worth noting that Seth’s Lugo’s FIP is still better than his 2016 number (4.33). ┬áLugo’s first September start was ineffective as he allowed 4 runs of 8 hits and 2 walks in 5.0 innings of work bringing his total numbers since returning to the rotation to 6 runs, 12 hits, 2 walks in 8.2 innings. Seth Lugo has not faced any members of the Reds in a major league game before.

Amir Garrett is 3-6 over 12 games and 58.1 innings posting a 7.41 ERA, 7.28 FIP and 1.560 WHIP in his rookie season. He will be making his first start since June where he allowed 6 runs over 3.2 innings. If you look at his season numbers he either allowed 2 runs or less (7 starts) or he allowed 6 or more runs (5 times), so inconsistent. In the minors this year he pitched 67.2 innings over 14 games with a 5.72 ERA. He has not faced any members of the Mets in a major league game.

Let’s Go Mets!
