Game Preview: Rockies vs Mets
Last night’s game was rained out, prompting a doubleheader tomorrow, however tonight’s match-up is the same as last night, so here’s a repost:
The Mets are on a slide right now, and they will look to Jon Niese to pull the team up. Last night the Mets and the Rockies went back and forth and then sadly the bats couldn’t squeeze another run out and the bullpen couldn’t stop the bleeding. Jon Niese is coming off of a bad game after a great game. He is now 0-1 on the season with a 6.55 ERA over 11 innings pitched. Last season he faced the Rockies twice, pitching 12 innings while posting 4.50 ERA. Over those 12 innings he walked only one batter while striking out 9. The Rockies have these numbers on Jon:
Helton 4-10, 2 2B
The Mets batters will deal with Esmil Rogers tonight, who allowed one earned run in 7.1 innings of work in his first start of the season. Last season he was 2-3 over 72.0 innings of work while posting a 6.13 ERA. Last season he pitched in relief for three innings over two games against the Mets allowing one earned run. The Mets have the following numbers on Rogers:
Wright 0-0, 2 BB
Let’s Go Mets!
