Game Preview: Marlins vs Mets

The rain is trying its best to make sure this Mets Marlins series doesn’t happen. The first game was rained out on Tuesday. On Wednesday there was a 5 and half hour rain delay that forced game one of the doubleheader to start after 9 and game two never happened. The Mets ended up winning by a lot in the first game, 13-0, as Wheeler was just dominated the Marlins. The Mets look to repeat that feat twice today.

Steven Matz is 5-11 over 26 games and 133.2 innings with a 4.17 ERA, 4.58 FIP, 1.257 WHIP, 89 ERA+. In his last three starts he has pitched 19.0 innings posting an ERA of 1.89. In his one start against the Marlins this season he allowed 1 run, no earned, over 5.1 innings. The Marlins have the following numbers against Matz:

The Mets bats will get a look at Sandy Alcantara making his third start this season. Over his first two he allowed only 1 run over 6 hits in 12.0 innings.
