The Mets now enter a tough stretch of 28 straight games where as of right now, their opponents are at, or above, .500. Yesterday the Mets were able to fight off the Giants to take just their 2nd rubber game of the year thanks in part to a lucky fly ball homer from Todd Frazier and a solid showing from the bullpen behind an average Wheeler. The team is only 2 two games below .500 now and have exactly 100 games left in the season.
And tonight they look to Jacob deGrom to set the tempo for those next 100 games. Jacob is 3-5 over 12 games and 69.2 innings with a 3.49 ERA, 3.37 FIP, 1.148 WHIP and 115 ERA+. In his last three starts he has allowed 4 runs over 17.2 innings (2.04 ERA) off 14 hits and 5 walks while striking out 17. He had a great start against the Rockies last season holding them to 2 runs, 1 earned over 8.0 innings from 5 hits and a walk while striking out 7. The Rockies have the following numbers against him:
- Charlie Blackmon 2019, 2B, BB, 3 K
- Ian Desmond 6-19, HR, BB, 7 K
- Daniel Murphy 4-19, 3B, 4 K
- Nolan Arenado 2-17, 2B, 4 K
- Mark Reynolds 0-15, 3 K
- Trevor Story 1-10, BB, 4 K
Antonio Senzatela is 4-4 over 10 games and 54.0 innings with a 5.33 ERA, 5.49 FIP, 1.593 WHIP and 95 ERA+. He has turned around those numbers in his last two starts allowing 3 runs over 12.0 innings from 13 hits and 5 walks. He last faced the Mets in a relief outing back in 2017 where he held them scoreless over 3.0 innings and to only 1 hit. The Mets have the following numbers in limited exposure to Antonio:
Let’s Go Mets!
