The Mets finally snapped their losing streak last night against the Dodgers in one of the more bizarre games played in Citi Field that included career highlight reel catches for Puig and Campbell … and just awful baserunning and a clear not understanding of baseball rules. The Mets look to build off this as the Diamondbacks come to to town today with Colon on the mound as he takes on Chase Anderson.
Colon is 3-5 over 9 starts and 57.1 innings and a 5.34 ERA. Colon’s trend in May has been terrible start, good start, bad start, great start (last time out he tossed 8.0 innings allowing only 2 ER) so who knows which Colon shows up today. He missed the Diamondbacks earlier this year and in his career he has only faced Arizona once allowing 8 hits over 5.2 innings and 4 earned runs. The Diamondbacks have the following numbers against Colon:
- Chavez 5-30, 2 2B, HR
- Pennington 4-9, 2B
- Hill 2-7
- Ross 1-6
Chase Anderson is making this third start in his rookie season. So far he is 2-0 allowing 6 ER over 10.2 innings. He spent his time in Double A this season with a 4-2 record and 6 starts over 39.0 innings with a 0.69 ERA. He has never faced the Mets or any on Mets roster in his career, which makes perfect sense.
Lets Go Mets!
