Game Preview: Mets @ Marlins

The Mets look to bounce back from yesterday’s game as they start a new series in Miami. Yesterday the Mets bats couldn’t capitalize on multiple opportunities to drive in more runs and the bullpen fell apart late as the Nationals won in walk-off fashion. On top of that, the Braves actually won a game so now the Mets are 4.5 games out of first place. However, the Mets have showed us last week how in a short period of time they can really close a division gap – so let’s get another win streak started today!

Carlos Carrasco gets the start for the Mets. In seven games and 28.2 innings he has a 6.59 ERA, 4.91 FIP, 1.221 WHIP and a 60 ERA+. In his last two games he has allowed five runs from seven hits and a walk, over 12.1 innings. That’s a much more reasonable 3.65 ERA. This includes a start against the Marlins last week where he allowed three runs from four hits and a walk over 5.1 innings, in a game the Mets eventually won 4-3. The Marlins have the following numbers against him:

  • Joe Panik 1-1
  • Miguel Rojas 2-4, HR
  • Alex Jackson 1-2, 2B, K
  • Jesus Aguilar 3-9, 2B, 2 BB, K
  • Jazz Chisholm 1-5, 2B, K
  • Bryan De La Cruz 1-4
  • Jorge Alfaro 1-5, 2 K
  • Sandy Leon 0-1
  • Isan Diaz 0-4
  • Lewis Brinson 0-4

The Mets bats will get another look at Edward Cabrera. Edward is making his third major league start. Over his first two starts he’s allowed six runs off 11 hits and three walks in 10.1 innings. This includes three homers. His last start was against the Mets where he allowed three runs off seven hits over 4.0 innings, in a game the Mets eventually won 3-1. The Mets had the following batting records from that game:

  • Michael Conforto 1-1, HR
  • Jeff McNeil 1-2, 2B
  • Jonathan Villar 1-2
  • J.D. Davis 1-2, K
  • Javier Bàez 1-2
  • Pete Alonso 0-2, K
  • Patrick Mazeika 0-1

Let’s Go Mets!
