Game Preview: Braves vs Mets

The Mets return home today after dropping both games in Washington, one more significantly than the other. Yesterday the Mets lost by a much more normal 5-3 where Syndergaard had a solid return to the lineup and Reyes, who came in for an injured Evans, some how hit two homers.

Tonight its Vargas again who is 2-6 over 10 games and 42.0 innings with a 8.36 ERA, 6.64 FIP, 1.786 WHIP and 46 ERA+. Last time was his first time back since landing on the DL and he allowed 3 runs over 4.1 innings from 3 hits and 3 walks. Honestly, his line should have been worse as he received a couple of great defensive plays. His second start of the season this year was against the Braves and they hit him hard tagging him for 6 runs from 11 hits and 2 walks in 4.2 innings including 3 homers. The Braves have the following numbers against him:

  • Suzuki 10-43, HR, 3 BB, 6 K
  • Markakis 8-33, 2 2B, 2 HR, 2 BB, 8 K
  • Flowers 1-7, HR, BB
  • Flaherty 3-6, HR
  • Albies 1-5
  • Freeman 1-4
  • Acuna 2-3, HR

The Mets bats will get another look at Mike Foltynewicz who is 7-7 over 112.1 innings with a 3.04 ERA, 3.55 FIP, 1.193 WHIP and 128 ERA+. He is still having a career year where his numbers in each of those categories are better than they have ever been, thus earning a spot in the All-Star game this year. That being said, the last four starts for him have been rough. He has allowed 18 runs over 23.1 innings which is an ERA of 6.94. His ERA going into this patch was 2.02. He last time he faced the Mets this year he held them scoreless and to only 2 hits over 5.0 innings. The Mets have the following numbers against him

  • Conforto 1-4
  • Bautista 2-4
  • Flores 2-4, 2B
  • Jackson 0-2
  • Reyes 0-3
  • Mesoraco 1-2
  • Rosario 0-2
