Game Preview: Marlins vs Mets

The Mets had their first great day of baseball in forever yesterday! Too bad they already clinched a losing record for the season. However, there were some high, personal points for players.

Yesterday the Mets beat the Marlins twice, sweeping the double-header. The real headline for the Mets was Noah Syndgergaard took the mound for the first time since the end of the 2019 season and he looked good – he recorded two strikeouts and got a ground out. Additionally, in the first game, Lindor hit his 19th homer of the season, which gives him a good chance to end the season around 20.

Taijuan Walker gets the start today and is looking to end his season on a high note. Over 29 games and 151.2 innings, Walker has a 4.57 ERA, 4.64 FIP, 1.207 WHIP and a 87 ERA+. He’s coming off of a bad start against the Red Sox where he allowed six runs from six hits over 2.0 innings. Overall in September he has allowed 19 runs from 21 hits over 17.1 innings – including eight homers. He also hasn’t been the best against the Marlins this year, allowing nine runs over 16.1 innings spread across three games. The Marlins have the following numbers against him:

  • Jazz Chisholm Jr. 2-4, 2 2B, BB, K
  • Bryan De La Cruz 4-5, K
  • Alex Jackson 1-5, HR, 2 K
  • Lewis Brinson 1-3, K
  • Jesus Sanchez 1-3, K
  • Joe Panik 4-15, BB, 2 K
  • Miguel Rojas 2-11, 2B, K

The Mets bats will get a look at Elieser Hernández tonight. Hernández has made 10 starts, pitching 46.2 innings, with a 4.24 ERA, 5.58 FIP, 1.329 WHIP and a 99 ERA+. Hernández, like Walker, is also coming off of a rough start. His last time out he allowed four runs from seven hits and two walks over 4.0 innings. In the month of September he allowed 12 runs, 11 earned, over 19.1 innings (5.12 ERA). His second start of the season was against the Mets, way back in April, where he held the Mets to one run over 5.0 innings, scattering five hits. The Mets have the following numbers against him:

  • Jose Peraza 1-1
  • Michael Conforto 3-7, HR, BB, 2 K
  • Brandon Nimmo 3-8, 2B, K
  • Jonathan Villar 1-4, HR
  • Francisco Lindor 0-1, BB
  • Jeff McNeil 1-5
  • Dominic Smith 0-4
  • Pete Alonso 0-6, 4 K
