The Mets attempt to mirror their last series with Washington with going agaisnt Mike Bacsik tonight. Mike has not started a game since September 11, when he went 2.2 innings agaisnt Flordia, allowing 5 runs and 8 hits.
Meaning the Mets will make him look like Sandy Koufax, Steve Carlington, Bob Feller etc.
His season ERA is 4.76, but his September ERA is 5.00.
He started a game agasint the Mets on July 27th, where he won after going 7 innings and allowing only 2 runs. On two seperate occasions he has pitched relief agaisnt the Mets totaling to 3.1 innings with no runs. So in total this season, he has pitched 10.1 innings agaisnt the Mets and has allowed 2 runs.
Lets just hope that ninth inning yesterday sparks the Mets to strike hard. Mike, if knocked around, will genreally last 5-6 innings giving up 3-4 runs, but he does have spots of greatness, usually agaisnt the Mets.
