Mets and the Nationals took a night off yesterday thanks to the rain and San Diego – Mets is somehow still there mathematically.
To stay in the race, they have to win both games today and the Giants have to lose. Not big odds.
It’s basically impossible. But Mets starts things with Jacob deGrom in a 7-inning game.
So you get deGrom vs Scherzer instead of Porcello vs Scherzer.
Jacob made his final start at the 12th time of the season, throwing 63.0 innings at 2.14 ERA, 1.99 FIP (League Leader), 0.921 WHIP and 197 ERA +.
He also leads the league with a K / 9 of 13.4. If he records six strikeouts, he will reach 100 this afternoon season. Ah
After the hamstring shortened outing, he bounced the last time against the raise, allowing two runs in the 7.0 inning outing, and Mets managed to lose.
He recorded the best of the season at 14K in the game. This is his first match against the Nationals in 2020, and the Nationals have the following numbers against him:
- Brock Holt 2-6, HR, 3 K
- Yan Gomes 1-2, K
- Victor Robles 3-10, 2 2B, 2 BB, 4 K
- Juan Soto 3-13, 2B, HR, 2 BB, 3 K
- Andrew Stevenson 1-4, 2B, BB
- Treater 11-38, 2B, BB, 13 K
- Josh Harrison 3-12, 5 K
Draw by Mets Bat Max ScherzerThis is the last start of the season.
He threw 61.1 innings at 3.67 ERA, 3.18 FIP, 1.386 WHIP and 125 ERA + with 11 starts.
After a terrible start on 9/13, he allowed 6 runs over 5.1 innings, rebounded at the final start and scored 2 runs against the Marlins in 5.2 innings.
Interesting and meaningless statistics-he threw 119 pitches in a back-to-back game. He made two starts against Mets in 2020.
He left after the first inning at one start, then he allowed one run over 6.0 innings.
Mets has the following numbers for Max:
- Luis Guillorm 3-4, 2B, K
- Andres Jimenez 1-3, 3B, K
- JD Davis 4-9, 2B, 2 K
- Brandon Nimmo 3-21, 2B, HR, 6 BB, 12 K
- Jeff McNeil 3-13, 2B, BB, 3 K
- Robinson Cano 3-21, 2 HR, BB, 5 K
- Amedro Rosary 4-15, 2B, 7K.
- Wilson Ramos 4-20, 2B, 2 K
- Todd Frazier 1-13, 2B, 4 K
If Mets wins the first game, the second game makes sense and Rick Porcello is on the mound!
He is the exact person you want on the mound in this situation (ironically).
With 56.0 innings, he has won 5.46 ERA, 3.15 FIP, 1.429 WHIP and 78 ERA +.
He made his best start of the year with Braves, allowing one inning and three hits in 7.0 innings out of ten innings.
He also succeeded in the Nationals this season – he threw 13.0 innings in two starts and allowed only three runs.
Porcello and all of us wish he could fight the Nationals for the final start and his previous two.
The public has the following numbers in Porcello:
- Victor Robles 2-4
- Juan Soto 3-8, 2B, BB, 2K
- Yangomes 6-18, 3 2B, 2 K
- Eric Thames 2-5
- Trea Turner 2-9, HR, K
- Kurt Suzuki 7-29, 2 2B, HR, 4 BB, K
- Asdol Barcabrera 18-67, 3 2B, 3 BB, 11 K
Mets Bat will win the final line of sight in 2020 at Aníbal Sanchez. Anival had a season to forget.
With more than 10 starts in 47.2 innings, he has 6.80 ERA, 5.48 FIP, 1.471 WHIP, 67 ERA +.
He has one of the better starts this season, keeping the Phillies down from 5.0 innings to one run (ERA dropped from 7.38 to 6.80 at this start).
In this year’s match against Mets, he allowed 5 hits and 6 hits in 2.2 innings in one inning.
