Game Preview: Pirates vs Mets

The Mets look to build off the momentum from last night’s win with tonight’s game. Yesterday the offense was able to string hits together to score runs, something they just haven’t been able to do consistently throughout the season. Today Morton gets the start for the Pirates as he faces off against Colon.

Colon is 3-5 over 9 starts and 57.1 innings with a 5.34 ERA.  Last time out, wasn’t really a time out. He allowed 2 runs in 4.0 innings or so against the Diamondbacks, but the game was called due to rain, so it is as if it didn’t happen. In his last official game, he allowed 2 ER over 8.0 innings of work against the Nationals. He has made five starts against the Pirates with a 3-1 record with a 1.46 ERA over 37.0 innings.

  • Marte 0-4
  • McCutchen 1-4
  • Tabata 2-4

Morton is 1-6 this year with a 3.29 ERA over 10 games and 63.0 innings. His last start was a good one and he was finally in the win column as he allowed 1 ER over 5.2 innings against the Nationals. He has made 5 starts and pitched 32.0 innings in May with a 2.25 ERA while striking out 20 batters.
