Game Preview: Braves vs Mets

Wheeler pitched eight innings last night, but it wasn’t enough as the Marlins were able to power past the Mets on 3 homers and beat them 4-2. TOnight the Mets will open their last series of the 2019 season against the Atlanta Braves who are doing their last tune up before the NLDS. For the Mets, the most exciting event this weekend will be Pete Alonso, still chasing the rookie record for homers.

Marcus Stroman makes his final start for the Mets in 2019. He went 3-2 over 10 starts and 53.2 innings as a Met so far posting a 3.86 ERA, 4.45 FIP, 1.509 WHIP and 106 ERA+. After allowing only 1 run over 13.1 innings in two starts, he stumbled a bit in his last start, allowing 2 runs over 4.2 innings from 3 hits and 3 walks. He was also battling a stomach bug which contributed to both his performance and his early exit. When he faced Atlanta earlier this season he allowed 3 runs, 2 earned over 5.1 innings from 4 hits and 4 walks. The Braves have the following numbers against him:

He’s 5-2 and the team is 6-2 in his last 8 starts where he pitched 48.0 innings posting a very nice 2.06 ERA.

The Mets have the following numbers against Dallas:
