Game Preview: Reds vs Mets

The Mets look to make it two in a row tonight against the Reds! If you forget about the 7th inning last night, the Mets looked great building 6 runs mostly from hit after hit after and then later two solo shots from Plawecki and McNeil. Syndergaard shut the Reds down for 6 innings allowing no runs but the wheels came off in the 7th as he allowed a run and left with the bases loaded (and all of those runners eventually scored) but the Mets didn’t lose the game completely and now look to Vargas to keep it going.

Jason Vargas is 2-7 over 11 games and 47.0 innings with a 8.23 ERA, 6.16 FIP, 1.787 WHIP and 46 ERA+. His first start back from the DL was bad but wasn’t 2018 bad for Vargas as he allowed 4 runs over 5.0 innings against the Braves and tied a season high for strikeouts at 7. He actually lowered his ERA with that outing. In May he allowed 4 runs over 4.0 innings from 6 hits and 2 walks. The Reds have the following numbers against Vargas:

  • Suarez 3-6, 2B
  • Peraza 1-3
  • Barnhart 2-2, 3B
  • Castillo 0-2
  • Gennett 0-2
  • Hamilton 0-2
  • Votto 0-0, BB, HBP

The Mets will send Sal Romano out to the mound tonight. He is 6-9 over 23 games and 21 starts over 116.0 innings with a 5.12 ERA, 5.24 FIP, 1.422 WHIP, 81 ERA+. He’s coming off a rough start in Detroit where he allowed 4 runs over 5.1 innings off 8 hits. Earlier this season he allowed only 1 run against the Mets in 6.0 innings. The Mets have the following numbers against Sal:

  • Nimmo 2-8, 3B
  • Rosario 2-7
  • Flores 0-6, 2 K
  • Bruce 0-3
  • Mesoraco 0-3
  • Conforto 1-2, 2B
  • Jackson 0-1, BB

Let’s Go Mets!
