Game Preview: Marlins vs Mets

The Mets are down to their last hope! Last night they squeaked out a win in extra innings after a less-than stellar start by Noah Syndergaard. But the Nationals and Brewers both won (with the former clinching a playoff berth) so now the Mets have to hope for the Brewers to lose the rest of the week while the Mets go on a winning streak. Highly unlikely but still mathematically possible.

Jacob deGrom will take the mound for the Mets. He is 10-8 over 31 starts and 197.0 innings with a 2.51 ERA, 2.72 FIP, 0.990 WHIP (league leading) and a 162 ERA+ (his second highest in his career next to last year’s absurd 218). Jacob also leads the league in strikeouts at 248. Since May 22nd deGrom has pitched 22 games and 145.0 innings with a 1.99 ERA. In his last three starts he has allowed 1 earned run over 21.0 innings from 10 hits and a walk while striking out 28. Opponents are hitting .139/.162/.181 against him in this stretch. In 5 starts already against the Marlins this season he has allowed 11 runs, 10 earned over 31.0 innings, a 2.90 ERA. The Marlins have the following numbers against him:

The Mets bats will try to keep their season alive against Robert Dugger who is in his rookie season. He is 0-3 over 6 starts and 32.1 innings with a 4.45 ERA, 5.72 FIP, 1.299 WHIP and a 96 ERA+. He’s coming off of his second worst start of his career, where he allowed 4 runs over 5.0 innings from 3 hits and 2 walks. His worst start was his major league debut against the Mets. The Mets tagged him for 6 runs over 5.0 innings from 5 hits and 4 walks including 2 homers. The Mets have the following batting lines from that game:

Let’s Go Mets!
