Game Preview: Mets @ Cardinals

Last night was not the Mets night, but they get a chance at the rubber game today with Noah Syndergaard on the night. Hidden in the Mets hot start this year is a concern about how reliable their starters are, especially after last year’s injury and off year for most of the rotation. Steven Matz struggled mightily last night as the Mets got crushed by the Cardinals but today is a new day and the Mets have a day game to look forward too.

Noah Syndergaard makes his 6th start today. So far he has tossed 27.1 innings with a 3.29 ERA, 2.40 FIP, 1.061 WHIP, and a 118 ERA+. He had an average start last time out in Atlanta where he allowed 3 runs over 6.0 innings. Previous to that he allowed 3 runs, 1 earned over 11.1 innings. His first start of the season was against the Cardinals where he allowed 4 runs off 6 hits and no walks in 6.0 innings while striking out 10. The Cardinals have the following numbers against him:

  • Ozuna 2-17, HR, 6 K
  • Fowler 1-8, BB
  • Molina 3-9, 2B, HR
  • Pham 2-7
  • Carpenter 1-5, 2B
  • Gyorko 1-6, HR
  • Wong 1-5
  • Jose Martinez 3-3, HR
  • DeJong 1-2

The Mets will say good bye to the Cardinals in the regular season by facing Carlos Martinez, the two-time all-star. He is 2-1 over 5 starts and 31.2 innings this year with a 1.42 ERA, 3.33 FIP, 1.137 WHIP and 272 ERA+. His worst start of the season, by far, was his first one against the Mets where he allowed 5 runs, 4 earned, over 4.1 innings while walking 6 and allowing 4 hits. Then in his next four starts he has posted a 0.33 ERA from 1 run over 27.1 innings while striking out 32. The Mets have the following numbers against Carlos:

  • Gonzalez 4-19, 2B, HR, 5 BB

  • Frazier 3-17, BB
  • Cespedes 5-15, 2B, HR, BB
  • Reyes 4-13, 2B, HR
  • Cabrera 2-9, 2B, 2 BB
