Game Preview: Mets @ Orioles

The thing about the Orioles is they still can hit. Pitching is sometimes a struggle for them. The former was on display last night at the Orioles beat the Mets 10-3 and the Mets lineup, after getting a 2-0 lead in the first, couldn’t stay in the game. Little hits followed by big hits crushed the Mets as they allowed 16 hits to the Orioles, with Peterson allowing 8 in 2.2 innings.

On the positive side of things – Pete Alonso had a good night, hitting two homers and collecting all 3 RBI’s for the Mets.

The Mets will try to bounce back tonight behind Taijuan Walker. Walker has made 10 starts and pitched 54.0 innings this year with a 2.17 ERA, 3.07 FIP, 1.056 WHIP and a 179 ERA+. He’s coming off of his second worst start of the season where he allowed 4 runs, 3 earned, over 5.0 innings from 7 hits and 4 walks against the Padres. Before that he had a four start streak where he allowed 2 runs, 1 earned, over 22.0 innings. This includes a start against the Orioles where he allowed 1 run off 4 hits and 3 walks in 7.0 innings of work. The Orioles have the following numbers against Walker:

The Mets get another Harvey Day! In 12 starts and 51.2 innings this year Harvey has a 6.62 ERA, 4.52 FIP, 1.606 WHIP and a 65 ERA+. He’s coming off of one one of his better starts, allowing 1 run in only 3.0 innings from 2 hits and a walk against the Twins – possibly a change of strategy? In his four previous starts he allowed 24 runs, 23 earned, over 13.2 innings. This includes a 4.2 inning start against the Mets where he allowed 7 earned runs. The Mets have the following numbers against him:
