The Mets and the Pirates start a four game series tonight in Pittsburgh as the Mets look to continue what they started in Milwaukee and bring it down to Pittsburgh. The Mets are coming off of a series win that could have easily been a sweep where the team is playing with a lot of grit and a lot of fight right now. Tonight, the rookie wonder Gee will get a start as he goes up against a success story this year in Charlie Morton.
Dillon Gee is 6-0 this season with a 3.33 ERA. His last start was brilliant as he tossed 7 scoreless frames against the Braves and his start before that was also good and it was against the Pirates as he pitched 7 innings allowing 3 earned runs. While his starts on the whole are not all lights out, his starts have been competitive, the Mets have had a chance to win with him on the mound. The Bucs have the following numbers against Dillon:
Tabata 1-6, 2B
The Mets will get to see Morton again. So far this season he is having an incredible bounce back year with his 2.52 ERA (compared to 7.57 from a year ago). In his last start he picked up the win in Philly with a 6 inning, 2 ER performance. Against the Mets he was a hard luck loser last time out as he allowed 3 runs, only one earned in 6 innings of work. However don’t feel too bad because the Mets tagged him for 11 hits during those 6 innings. The Amazin’s have the following numbers on Morton:
Let’s Go Mets!
