Game Preview: Mets @ Cardinals

The Mets will go for two in a row tonight against the Cardinals after last night’s extra inning win! The Mets fell into an early 2-0 hole which they cut to 2-1 thanks to a Bruce triple. Fast forward a bit, Wheeler was struggling and left the game when it was 4-1 Cardinals, which was the presumed score Harvey was going to enter the game under but then Cespedes hit a 463-ft, 115.1 mph homer, tied the game. Harvey would allow a run, the Mets would score another run before Bruce ended it on a go-ahead solo shot in the 10th inning. A Bruce sandwich of a game with monster-Cespedes in the middle.

Matz will look to get the job done for the Mets tonight in his 5th start of the season. He’s 1-1 over 18.1 innings so far with a 4.42 ERA, 5.69 FIP, 1.145 WHIP and 88 ERA+.
