Game Preview: Mets @ Phillies

The Mets lost a tough one yesterday in 14 innings. It was a back and forth game that ended with the Mets snapping their three game streak, and tonight they look to start a new winning streak with deGrom on the mound as he takes on Kyle Kendrick.

Jacob deGrom is 0-2 over three games this season and 19.2 innings with a 1.83 ERA. His last start against the Pirates was his best of his short career allowing 5 hits no runs over 6.2 innings while walking 5 and striking out 4 batters. Well, by some measures it might not have been the best start (maybe his opening start 7.0 IP, 4 H, ER, 2 BB, 6 K). This will be his first start of many against the Phillies.

The Mets bats will get another look at the familiar Kyle Kendrick who is 1-5 over 10 games and 62.1 innings with a 4.04 ERA. His first four starts in May he pitched 25.0 innings with a 5.76 ERA but in his last start he allowed no runs over 6.2. One of those starts was against the Mets where he allowed 4 ER over 5.1 innings. The Mets have the following numbers against Kyle:

  • Wright 15-44, 3 2B, 3 HR
  • Murphy 6-30, 2B
  • Duda 3-18, 2 2B, HR
  • Tejada 4-19
  • C Young 3-17, 2B, HR
  • Lagares 3-5, 2B

Lets Go Mets!
