Game Preview: Mets vs Marlins

Well that was a storybook afternoon!

The Mets had a massive, 6-5 come back win against the Marlins to start off the day. The Mets were down most of the afternoon, and entered the 9th inning down 5-1 after leaving runners on in the 8th inning. Nimmo started things off with a two run homer. Bàez came up with the tying run on with two outs (you can’t make this up!), got a hit and then scored the winning run! Hopefully that turns everything between a group of fans and him around.

Now the Mets have an opportunity for the double header sweep!

Trevor Williams will make his second start for the Mets today and pitch in his fourth game. As a Met, Williams has pitched 8.2 innings allowing 1 run off 4 hits and 4 walks while striking out 5 (1.04 ERA, 3.74 FIP, 0.923 WHIP and a 396 ERA+). This is a dramatic improvement compared to his time with the Cubs where he pitched in 13 games, 12 starts, totaling 58.2 innings posting a 5.06 ERA, 4.53 FIP, 1.534 WHIP and an 83 ERA+. Only two players on the Marlins roster have seen Williams in a major league game:

  • Jesus Aguilar 0-5, BB, 5 K
  • Miguel Rojas 0-3, K

Edward Cabrera will pitch in his second major league game this today. The rookie is coming off of his major league debut back on the 25th where he allowed 3 runs from 4 hits and 3 walks from 6.1 innings. This includes two homers. In the minors this year he made 13 starts and pitched 61.1 innings with a 2.93 ERA with a 1.141 WHIP. This will be Edward’s first start against the Mets.
