Game Preview: Diamondbacks vs Mets

The New York Mets, New York’s National League Water Polo team, returns to the pool tonight to play the Arizona Diamondbacks. Our nation’s collective rainy spring continues as tonight’s game looks to find a dry slot in weather in water logged Queens. The Mets are coming off an off day after a loss as they continue a one week trend of one step forward, one step back.

Jacob deGrom takes the mound for the Mets tonight. He’s 3-0 over 8 games and 44.1 innings with a 1.83 ERA, 2.22 FIP, 1.038 WHIP and 211 ERA+. His last start on Sunday was utterly bizarre, mostly due to Mother Nature. The Mets and Phillies had a long rain delay to start the game. When the game finally got underway, deGrom proceeded to walk the first three batters he faced to load the bases. He then got two strikeouts and got out of the inning unscathed but tossed an enormous amount of pitches (45) and was done for the day. The Diamondbacks have the following numbers against Jacob:

  • Mathis 2-7, BB, 3 K
  • Pollock 1-4
  • Ahmed 0-3
  • Avila 1-3
  • Descalso 0-3
  • Goldschmidt 1-2, BB
  • Lamb 0-3
  • Owings 1-3

The Mets bats will try to find some positive consistency against Zack Godley tonight who is 4-2 over 8 game sand 46.1 innings with a 4.08 ERA, 4.20 FIP, 1.424 WHIP and 104 ERA+. In his last two starts he has pitched 12.0 innings allowing 8 ER from 13 hits and 5 walks. He’s allowed 4 runs or more in three of his last fours starts and four of his last six starts. He pitched well against the Mets last year allowing 1 run from 1 hit and 5 walks in 6.2 innings and then allowed 3 runs, 2 earned in 5.0  innings in Queens. The Mets have the following numbers against him:

  • Bruce 1-8, 2 BB
  • Gonzalez 1-8, 3 K
  • Reyes 1-5, BB
  • Conforto 2-6
  • Flores 0-4
  • Cabrera 0-3
  • Nimmo 1-1, 2B

Let’s Go Mets!
