Game Preview: Mets @ Nationals
We are sorry for the interruption but today we bring you back to your regularly scheduled day game. The Mets play the 12:30 game today as they look to build off of yesterday’s win featuring young Starter Dillon Gee. Today, the Mets will be looking for Dickey to bounce back from his last start as they take on Livan Hernandez and the Nationals.
Dickey just wasn’t that good in his last outing as he allowed 7 ER over 6 innings of work. This season he has two no decisions against the Nationals, but he has pitched very well as he has allowed only 2 ER against them over 13.0 innings of work. The Nationals have these numbers on Robert Allen:
The Mets bats will get a chance at Livan Hernandez who is 9-10 this season with a nice 3.81 ERA. The Mets are catching him at a good time right now as he has been fairly terrible in his last three outings where he has pitched a combined 15 innings and has allowed 20 ER (yes, 5 more ER than innings pitched). What Livan has going for him is that he has been pretty good against the Amazin’s this season as he has pitched 3 games totalling 20.1 innings allowing only 3 ER. So in the statistical world, its a battle to see if his numbers against the Mets continue or if his recent outing numbers continue. The Mets have these numbers on Livan:
Wright 12-39, 3 2B, 4 HR
Beltran 9-30, 2B, 2 HR
Blanco 11-27, 3 2B
Lets Go Mets!
