Game Preview: Mets @ Cubs
The Mets and Cubs play a classic day game in Chicago. Last night, the Mets bounced back from a terrible opening game with a 7-4 win in a rain shortened game. Yesterday, the Mets found themselves in a quick 4-1 hole, but they came roaring back in the top of the second, scoring 5 runs, putting the game out of reach for the Cubs. Today Dickey will go up against the always fiery Zambrano.
This season Robert Allen is 2-5 with an ERA of 4.71. He bounced back from his bad outing in Houston nicely against the Yankees last week where pitched 6 innings allowing only one earned run. Last season he had an abysmal start against the Cubs where he pitched 6 innings allowing 7 earned runs. The Cubs have the following numbers on the knuckleballer:
Pena 2-10, 2 HR
DeWitt 2-5, HR
Soriano 2-5, HR
Johnson 1-3, 2B
The Mets will get another bout with Carlos Zambrano today, who is 4-2 with a 4.88 ERA over 62.2 innings of work. In his last three starts he has pitched 18.1 innings while allowing 13 earned runs (6.50 ERA). Before that streak started, his ERA was 4.23 and it has raised a good bit. Last season he was 1-1 over 2 games over 13 innings with a 2.77 ERA against the Mets. The Mets have the following numbers against Carlos:
Bay 14-41, 4 2B, 3B, 5 HR
Beltran 3-18, HR
Paulino 1-19 (Ouch)
Reyes 5-21, 2B, 3B
