Game Preview: Phillies vs Mets

The Phillies jumped out to an early 10-0 lead against the Mets last night, and somehow the Mets clawed back to a final score of 10-8. Meanwhile, the Giants and the Cardinals both won last night so the pressure continues for the Mets this afternoon as they look to win another series and keep a Wild Card spot and post-season berth.

The Mets will turn to Robert Gsellman today who is 2-2 over 6 games and 5 starts over 31.2 innings with a 3.13 ERA. In his last two starts he has tossed 11.0 innings allowing 2 ER while striking out 10 batters. His longest start of his career came against the Phillies where he pitched 6.0 innings allowing 7 hits and 4 ER. The Phillies have the following numbers against Robert:

  • Altherr 1-2
  • Franco 1-3
  • Hernandez 1-3
  • Joseph 1-3
  • Paredes 2-3, 2B
  • Ellis 0-2
  • Galvis 1-2, 2B

The Mets bats will draw a rookie this afternoon in Jake Thompson who is 3-5 over 9 starts and 49.2 innings with a 5.62 ERA. (It is worth noting that his numbers are still heavily influenced by 3 of his first 4 starts where he allowed 6, 5, and 7 ER). In his last two starts he’s 2-0 over 11.0 innings allowing 10 hits and 5 ER. He’s never faced the Mets before in a major league game.

Let’s Go Mets!
