These Mets! They did it again yesterday afternoon as they beat the Braves, took their streak to 11 games, 10-0 on the homestand and 13-3 on the season. The winning streak is now tied for the longest winning streak in franchise history and the 10-0 record on the homestand is the best record the Mets have ever had in a 10 game homestand. Yesterday Bartolo was a better than his numbers suggest as he threw more pitches than needed thanks to a Murphy miscue. Murphy also had 4 RBI’s so Murphy giveth, Murphy taketh. The Mets commute to the Bronx tonight to open up 2015’s first Subway Series.
Jacob deGrom makes his 4th start of the season tonight. So far he is 2-1 with a 0.93 ERA over 3 games and 19.1 innings. Overall on the season he has had 3 walks, 19 hits and 2 ER while striking out 17 innings. Those two runs came from the first inning of his first game of the season. Jacob made one start against the Yankees last year where he allowed 1 run on 4 hits over 7.0 innings while walking 2 and striking out 6. The Yankees have the following numbers against deGrom:
- G Jones 1-9, 2B
- Ellsbury 1-3, 2B
- Gardner 0-2, BB
- McCann 1-3
- Teixeira 0-2
Michael Pineda gets the start for the Yankees as he looks to make his 4th start of the season. He’s 2-0 over three starts with a 5.00 ERA over 18.0 innings. In that stretch he allowed 22 hits and 10 runs while walking 2 and striking out 20. Looking more specifically at his starts, his first one was average (2 runs over 6), second one was bad (5 runs and 6.1) and third was ok (3 runs over 5.2). He didn’t face the Mets last season. In 13 starts last season he was 5-5 with a 1.89 ERA over 76.1 innings. The only Mets who have faced him are Cuddyer (1-5) and Granderson (0-1).
Let’s Go Mets!
