Game Preview: Mets @ Brewers

The Mets dropped two in a row as they head into Milwaukee to play the Brewers. It has been a frustrating two night as a lack of offense (both nights) and defense (two nights ago) played the major roles in the Mets loss. It is easy to get frustrated at Familia for allowing 2 runs last night in the 9th inning, but if you look at the Mets pitching staff as a whole, we all would be very happy with the team allowing only 2 runs. Last night is all about the lack of hitting that has been plaguing the Mets for a while now but has been exasperated since Frazier and Cespedes both went on the DL together.

Steven Matz looks to move the Mets in the right direction tonight. He is 1-3 over 8 games and 36.2 innings with a 4.42 ERA, 5.89 FIP, 1.309 WHIP and 86 ERA+. After two, strong, back to back starts where he allowed 2 runs in 11.0 innings from 8 hits and 5 walks while striking out 8, Matz took a step back in his last outing allowing 4 runs from 6 hits and a walk (and two homers) over 4.0 innings. He faced the Brewers earlier this year and allowed 4 runs, 3 earned from 3 hits and 2 walks in 5.1 innings, his second longest outing of the year. The Brewers have the following numbers against Steven:

  • Yelich 3-14, K
  • Perez 2-8, HR
  • Villar 2-7, 3 K
  • Braun 2-5, 2B, HR
  • Cain 1-4, 2 BB, 2 K
  • Broxton 2-5, 2 K
  • Shaw 0-3

The Mets bats will continue their month long finding themselves journey against Zach Davies who is 2-3 over 6 games and 34.0 innings with a 4.24 ERA, 4.88 FIP, 1.265 WHIP and 95 ERA+. Davies will be making his first start since April 29th from a rotator cuff injury, so I’m sure he will be watched carefully tonight by the Brewers staff. In his last three starts before the injury he was on a roll posting a 2.00 ERA across 18.0 innings of work. His last bad start was against the Mets on April 13th where he allowed 5 runs from 7 hits and 2 walks, including 2 homers in 4.1 innings. The Mets have the following numbers against Davies:

  • Bruce 1-15, HR, 2 BB
  • Conforto 2-9, 2 2B, 3 BB
  • Gonzalez 4-12
  • Cabrera 5-9, 2 2B
  • Cesepdes 5-9, HR (DL)
  • Frazier 3-5, 2 HR (DL)
  • Flores 0-2
  • Rosario 0-2

Let’s Go Mets!
