Game Preview: Mets @ Phillies

It was pretty clear around the 3rd inning that last night’s game was going to be one of those games that despite the marquee pedigree of Syndergaard and Nola on the mound, that the wind, the friendly confines of the ballpark and the way the baseball just flies now, it was going to be a back and forth offensive game. This one ended with the Mets on top in the 11th.

Steven Matz will look to keep the Mets in the win column tonight. Over his first three starts of the season he has allowed 5 runs, 3 earned over 16.1 innings with a 1.65 ERA, 3.33 FIP, 1.041 WHIP and a 251 ERA+. He faced the Phillies 4 times last year totaling 17.0 innings allowing 9 runs, 7 earned over 17.0 innings (3.71 ERA). The Phillies have the following numbers against Matz:

The Mets will get their first 2019 look at Nick Pivetta who is in the midst of his third major league season. So far he has allowed 15 runs, 14 earned over 13.1 innings leading to a 9.45 ERA, 5.10 FIP, 2.175 WHIP, and a 49 ERA+. Last year he made a significant step forward from his 2017 rookie year. In 2018 he tossed 33 games, 32 starts and 164.0 innings with a 4.77 ERA, 3.80 FIP, 1.305 WHIP and a 87 ERA+. He only faced the Mets once last year where he allowed 6 runs from 8 hits and a walk in 3.2 innings. The Mets have the following numbers against Nick:
