Game Preview: Braves vs Mets

The Mets and the month of June just don’t get along. Last night the Mets lost for a sixth consecutive time. It was a little different last night as they never held the lead in the game, but a three run inning by Gsellman in the 8th inning put the game way out of reach for a line up struggling to find much of anything. Pete Alonso hit his 28th homer last night, continuing a historic season while the Mets themselves just flutter into obscurity.

Steven Matz looks to play stopper today. He is 5-6 over 15 starts and 78.0 innings with a 4.85 ERA, 5.49 FIP, 1.462 WHIP and 84 ERA+. One thing we have learned this year is Matz does not like to pitch in Philly. His last time out he allowed 7 runs over 4.1 innings, including his 9th and 10th homer in the first inning. Overall he has allowed 15 runs, 13 earned in Philly this year over two starts (and 4.1 innings since in the first one he didn’t retire a batter). His start before Philly was Atlanta, and that also didn’t go so well. He allowed 5 runs over 5.0 innings. The Braves have the following numbers against Matz:

The Mets have to deal with Julio Teheran tonight who is 5-6 over 17 games and 91.1 innings with a 3.94 ERA, 4.54 FIP, 1.336 WHIP and 116 ERA+. Things haven’t been great for Julio in his last two starts either as he has allowed 13 runs over 8.0 innings from 17 hits and 6 walks. One of those starts was against the Mets where he allowed 6 runs over 4.0 innings, a game where the Mets won 10-2 and possibly their last solid showing in the month of June. The Mets have the following numbers against him:

Let’s Go Mets!
