Yesterday was a classic deGrom for the Mets as deGrom did something that has never been done before and not getting the win for it. Jacob posted his 26th consecutive start of allowing 2 runs or less but the Mets bats could only muster 1 run for the 2 he allowed and the bullpen allowed 3 more. Despite the Mets scoring a whopping 3 runs, it wasn’t enough to erase the loss decision on deGrom’s ledger.
Hopefully the Mets bats won’t do Wheeler dirty like deGrom. Wheeler is coming back from a chest injury and was originally questionable for yesterday’s start. On the season he is 10-7 over 27 games and 167.1 innings with a 3.39 ERA, 3.28 FIP, 1.165 WHIP and a 109 ERA+. He had his most human start in a while in his last start allowing 3 runs over 7.0 innings. Overall in his last 9 games he has tossed 60.0 innings posting an ERA of 1.50. Against the Marlins he is 2-1 in as many starts this year posting a 1.80 ERA over 20.0 innings. The Marlins have the following numbers against him:
- Dietrich 3-15, 3B, 2 BB, 9 K
- Castro 3-15, 5 K
- Anderson 1-8, 2B, 4 K
- Rojas 3-9, 2 HR
- Realmuto 3-6, 2B
The Mets bats draw rookie Trevor Richards tonight who is 3-8 over 21 games and 102.0 innings with a 4.73 ERA, 4.21 FIP, 1.451 WHIP and a 77 ERA+. He is coming off of a terrible start where he allowed 6 runs over 1.1 innings against the Phillies in Miami. In his last four games he has allowed 16 runs off 20 hits in 16.2 innings. This will be his first start against the Mets.
Let’s Go Mets!
