Game Preview: Reds vs Mets

The Mets will look to bounce back from dropping three games of four against the Braves this weekend, yesterday being a frustrating day. It was the second start this season where Corey Oswalt made one mistake that ruins the day for him, and otherwise he was great. I hope the Mets try to roll the dice with him again, but if Reyes is a model (and Bruce, and Bautista), the Mets will probably go with Vargas. Matt Harvey returns to Queens today as well! He doesn’t line up to pitch against the Mets but at least we can stare at him in the dugout. Romantic.

Noah Syndergaard goes for the Amazin’s today. He is 6-2 over 14 games and 81.2 innings with a 2.98 ERA, 2.72 FIP, 1.224 WHIP and 127 ERA+. In his first start back from hand, foot and mouth disease he allowed 3 runs over 7.0 innings and in three starts since returning in July he has posted a 2.65 ERA over 17.0 innings. The Reds have the following numbers against him:

  • Suarez 4-12
  • Votto 0-11, BB, 5 K
  • Hamilton 1-6
  • Barnhart 0-5
  • Gennett 1-5

The Mets bats draw Homer Bailey who is 1-8 over 14 games and 76.2 innings with a 5.87 ERA, 5.62 FIP, 1.513 WHIP, and a 71 ERA+. He has been much better since he returned in July allowing 4 runs over 14.2 innings lowering his ERA from 6.68 to 5.87. Against the Mets in May he allowed 6 runs over 4.0 innings from 8 hits and a walk. The Mets have the following numbers against Homer:

  • Reyes 2-10, 2B, BB
  • Nimmo 1-5, BB
  • Plawecki 2-6, 2B, HR
  • Frazier 1-4
  • Jackson 1-4, HR
  • Conforto 1-3, HR
  • Flores 1-3, 2B
  • Rosario 1-1, 2B

Let’s Go Mets!
