Game Preview: Pirates vs Mets

Two in a row! Last night was the second night in a row that Daniel Vogelbach had a big important hit. The Braves had a comeback win of their own last night so they are still only one game behind the Mets.

Bassitt is coming off of a rough start against the Cubs where he allowed five runs from five hits (two homers) over 3 2/3 innings. Before that start he was in the midst of a seven game stretch where he had a 1.75 ERA over 46 1/3 innings.

That seven game stretch included a fantastic start against the Pirates in Pittsburgh where he held the Pirates to one run from five hits and a walk over seven innings while striking out 10 batters. The Pirates have the following career numbers against Bassitt:
