Game Preview: Nationals vs Mets

The Mets and Nationals continue their series tonight as the Mets kept it close last night but couldn’t beat back the Nationals. Matz had a good night allowing only 3 runs but the bullpen behind him couldn’t keep a clean sheet and despite homers from Bautista, Plawecki and Cabrera (the former and latter trying to raise trade stock), it wasn’t enough.

But tonight is a different night for the Mets! Tonight is the night that the God of Thunder, Thor, Syndergaard finally returns from the DL from his strained finger from forever ago. Or at least what feels like forever ago. On the season he is 4-1 over 11 games and 64.2 innings with a 3.06 ERA, 2.57 FIP, 1.175 WHIP and 125 ERA+. His last start was at the end of May where he allowed 3 runs against the Brewers. The last time he faced the Nationals was last year. One was his game in April which essentially ended his season where he allowed 5 runs over 1.1 innings, the other was a 1.0 inning rehab start where he allowed 1 hit. The Nationals have the following numbers against Noah:

  • Harper 5-18, 2B, 4 BB
  • Rendon 7-20, 2B, HR, BB
  • Murphy 3-14, 2 2B
  • Turner 1-9
  • Taylor 2-7
  • Reynolds 1-6

Tanner Roark for the Nationals is 3-11 this season over 19 games and 18 starts pitching 109.2 innings leading to a 4/76 ERA, 4.58 FIP, 1.368 WHIP and 88 ERA+. In his last two starts he has allowed 13 runs over 11.0 innings so he’s looking to get back on the right track (he is also leading the league in losses). In his first start against the Mets this season he allowed 5 runs over 5.0 innings and in his second start he allowed 2 runs over 7.0 innings. The Mets have the following numbers against him:

  • Conforto 4-15, 2 2B, HR
  • Cabrera 4-13, 2 2B, HR
  • Reyes 3-12, 2 BB
  • Flroes 2-13, 2B
  • Mesoraco 0-5
  • Rosario 0-5
  • den Dekker 1-4, 2B
  • Nimmo 2-3, HR
