Game Preview: Mets @ Phillies

The Mets start a very unique series tonight as they play their first of five games in Philly. Originally a four game set, the Mets and Phillies were rained out of a game in a two game set earlier in the year creating this 5 day series in Philly. The first of this playoff length (NLDS) series of games will have Zack Wheeler facing off against David Buchanan.

Wheeler is 1-5 on the season pitching 56.1 innings over 10 starts and a 4.63 ERA. After two straight charts of allowing 5 ER, he allowed 2 ER, three total over 6.2 against Arizona while walking 1 and striking out 7. Last year he allowed 4 ER over 11.1 innings against the Philies (3.18 ERA) who have the following numbers against Zack:

  • Rollins 2-6
  • Ruf 0-4
  • Utley 1-5
  • Mayberry 2-5, 2B
  • Ruiz 0-5
  • Brown 0-3

David Buchanan will be making his second start of his career tonight against the Mets. In his major league debut he allowed 2 earned runs and 5 hits over 5.0 innings allowing no walks and striking out 2. In the minors this year he is 5-1 over 9 games with a 3.98 ERA over 40.2 innings. Amazingly his ERA matches his career minors ERA which is over 88 innings and 502.0 innings.

Lets Go Mets!
