Game Preview: Mets @ Cardinals

The Mets winning streak hit a bump in the road yesterday as deGrom struggled in his second straight start and the Mets offense didn’t make their way to the ballpark. Now the Mets need Seth Lugo to come through tonight to take this crucial series with the St. Louis Cardinals. Lugo is 0-2over 10 games and 1 start over 23.2 innings and a 3.04 ERA. His last outing was his first of his major league career where he allowed 3 ER over 6.2 innings. Not surprisingly he has never faced the Cardinals or anyone on the Cardinals roster in a major league game.

The Mets bats get to face a major foe in Mets lore tonight in Adam Wainwright. Wainwright is 9-7 over 25 games and 151.0 innings with a 4.71 ERA. In his last three starts he is 0-2 over 14.0 innings while allowing 20 hits and 16 earned runs (10.29 ERA). He also faced the Mets at the end of July where he allowed 4 ER over 11 hits and 6.2 innings. The Mets have the following numbers against Wainwright:

  • Bruce 12-41, 2 2B, 2 HR
  • Loney 16-34, 5 2B, HR
  • Granderson 1-12
  • Cespedes 3-12, HR
  • K Johnson 1-11
