Game Preview: Mets @ Brewers

The Mets scored 3 runs in the first inning yesterday. If the game ended right after the top of the first frame, the Mets would have won! But the game went on for 17 more frames and the Mets lost 17-6. The pitching was off in just about every way imaginable and ultimately if the offense scores 6 runs, that team should win the ball game. Anyway the Mets will get out of Miller Park today, which stinks for Mets fans in attendance as tomorrow is $1 Hot Dogs at Miller Park and at least that has an almost 0% chance of disappointment, unlike the Mets.

Maybe Zack Wheeler can get things going on the right path today! Wheeler is 2-4 over 8 games and 44.0 innings with a 5.32 ERA, 3.97 FIP, 1.500 WHIP, 71 ERA+. His line from his last start is confusing. He allowed 3 runs, 1 earned, over 6.0 innings from 7 hits and no walks while striking out 9. In reality, he pitched a great game but Reyes misplayed at least two balls behind him, one that should have ended an inning where the Marlins plated two more runs. Last year he allowed 2 runs from 10 hits and a walk in 6.1 innings against the Brewers who have the following numbers against him:

  • Yelich 2-15, HR, 2 BB
  • Sogard 3-4
  • Anderson 1-3
  • Braun 0-3
  • Cain 2-3
  • Franklin 2-2, BB
  • Shaw 0-3
  • Thames 0-3

The Mets bats will get a look at veteran Jhoulys Chacin who is having a better than career average season for the Brewers. The long time Rockies pitcher is 3-1 over 11 starts and 57.0 innings with a 3.32 ERA, 4.30 FIP, 120 ERA+ and 1.316 WHIP. In the month of May he has tossed 23.1 innings with a 1.54 ERA. In April he faced the Mets and allowed only 1 run over 4.0 innings in a game the Mets eventually won. The Mets have the following numbers against him:

  • Gonzalez 8-22, 2B, HR, 3 BB
  • Cabrera 2-12, HR, 3 BB
  • Conforto 5-12, HR, 2 BB
  • Bruce 3-10, 2B, 2 BB
  • Flores 4-10, 2B, 2 BB
  • Nimmo 2-3, 3B

Let’s Go Mets!
