Yesterday was not a good day for the Mets. They lost to the Reds 3-2, the Nationals and the Brewers both won dropping the Mets to 4.5 games out and their elimination number to 4. Things aren’t over yet but now the Mets have a very small window to make the playoffs. The only thing the Mets can do is keep winning and see what happens in other games.
Marcus Stroman was Marcus Stroman his last time out. More of that please! On the season with the Mets he is 3-2 over 9 starts and 49.0 innings with a 3.86 ERA, 4.20 FIP, 1.531 WHIP and 106 ERA+. In his last two starts he has allowed 1 run over 13.1 innings from 8 hits and 5 walks while striking out 13. In his last start he tossed 7.0 scoreless innings. Interestingly, he has faced the Diamondbacks and Rockies already this season when he was a member of the Blue Jays before his last two starts. This pattern holds true when you consider that the only other start he allowed 1 run in prior to his last two, his 4.0 innings against the Indians, he faced them earlier in the season also. Maybe he completely rebounds and is dominate next season playing teams he’s faced again as a National League pitcher? Anyway he hasn’t faced the Reds yet this year and they have the following numbers against him:
Trevor Bauer had a 3.79 ERA over 24 starts and 156.2 innings before being traded to the Reds. Since the trade, he is 2-4 over 9 starts and 49.1 innings with a 6.39 ERA, 4.76 FIP, 1.419 WHIP and 72 ERA+. But his last two starts have been different. He’s allowed a combined 3 runs over 14.1 innings, mostly helped by a 1 run, 8.0 inning start against the Diamondbacks last week. The Mets have the following stats against him:
- Todd Frazier 8-25, 2 2B, HR, BB, 8 K
- Robinson Cano 5-17, 2 2B, 5 BB, 7 K
- Rajai Davis 4-16, HR, BB, 5 K
- Jed Lowrie 1-12, 2B, 6 K
- Wilson Ramos 0-3
- Rene Rivera 0-2, K
- Michael Conforto 0-1
Let’s Go Mets!
