Game Preview: Yankees vs Mets

The Mets offense woes continued last night as they dropped the opener to the Yankees 4-1. Jacob deGrom gave the Mets another excellent start where he allowed 3 runs, 2 earned over 8.0 innings and most likely if the offense was working the way it was supposed to, he probably doesn’t pitch in the 8th inning where he allowed 2 of those runs. After a lead-off homer by Nimmo, the Mets bats fell silent. Will they wake up today?

Steven Matz gets the start for the Mets and on the season he is 2-4 over 11 games and 52.2 innings with 3.42 ERA, 5.10 FIP, 1.234 WHIP and 112 ERA+. In his last three starts he has tossed 16.0 innings of 1.13 ERA baseball and since the start of May he has tossed 31.0 innings of 2.32 ERA baseball, his only blemish being a 4 run, 4.0 inning start against Arizona. The last game he pitched in 2017 was against the Yankees and it wasn’t pretty as he allowed 7 runs, 6 earned, from 7 hits and 2 walks in 3.1 innings. The Yankees have the following numbers against Matz:

  • Stanton 4-10, 2 HR, BB
  • Gregorius 3-7, 2B, BB
  • Garnder 2-5, 2B, BB
  • Hicks 0-4
  • Sanchez 1-4, HR
  • Bird 1-3
  • Drury 2-3, HR
  • Judge 0-2
  • Austin 2-2

The Mets bats draw Domingo German making his 6th start of the season. In 10 games this yearhe has a 5.44 ERA over 41.1 innings with a 4.39 FIP, 1.331 WHIP, 80 ERA+. Since becoming a starter he has tossed 27.0 innings with an ERA of 6.33. His first start was fantastic, holding the Indians scoreless over 6.0 innings. If we narrow the range to his last four starts he has allowed 20 runs, 19 earned in 21.0 innings. He had a couple of cups of coffee with the Yankees last season, missing the Mets each time and missing members of the current Mets team while they played with other clubs.

Let’s Go Mets!
