Game Preview: Mets @ Phillies

Yesterday closed Matt Harvey’s season and it wasn’t a good night. Harvey lasted 4 innings, allowed too many runs and now we can all just focus on next season for him. Stomach issues also have shuffled the Mets rotation again and thus we get Seth Lugo today for the second to last game of the season.

Lugo is 7-5 over 18 starts and 17 games in 97.1 innings with a 4.72 ERA, 3.92 FIP and 1.366 WHIP. In his last two starts he has allowed only 1 run over 11.0 innings with 6 hits, a walk and 10 K’s. It would be nice for Lugo to end the season a streak propelling him into next season. His last start against Philly was in Philly in mid-August where he allowed 5 runs over 5.1 innings with 8 hits and 4 walks. The Phillies have the following numbers against Lugo:

  • Hernandez 2-4, 3B, 3 BB
  • Franco 1-5
  • Galvis 0-5
  • Herrera 1-4, 2B
  • Alfaro 1-3
  • Hoskins 0-3
  • Joseph 2-3, 2B
  • Altherr 0-1

The Mets bats will take a crack at Henderson Alvarez who is 0-1 in 2 starts and 10.0 innings this year with a 3.60 ERA, 6.05 FIP and 1.400 WHIP. Alvarez was with the Blue Jays and Marlins organizations over his career and made his debut with the Blue Jays in 2011. He got a full season with the Marlins 2014 (All-Star) and has a tough road since including playing in the minors all of 2016 with Oakland. In the minors this season he is 2-0 over 3 starts and 19.0 innings with a 2.84 ERA. The Mets have the following numbers with him as he tries to come back:

  • d’Arnaud 4-15, BB
  • Lagares 2-9, 2 2B
  • Aoki 2-6
  • Cabrera 2-5

Let’s Go Mets!
