Game Preview: Reds vs Mets

An article by posted on September 27, 2011

The Mets and Reds play game two of this final series of the season as the Mets look to end their slide. To be honest though, the reason we are all watching at this point is mostly to see if Reyes can take the NL Batting title, as he just barely leads Braun. Capuano will get the start for the Mets tonight as he goes against Arroyo.

Capuano is 11-12 with a 4.55 ERA going into his final start of the season. In the month of September he is 1-1 over 4 starts with a 5.66 ERA. In his one start against the Reds this season, he pitched 5.1 innings allowing 6 ER. The Res have the following numbers against Chris:

Phillips 12-26, 3 2B, HR
Renteria 3-18
Stubbs 3-9, HR
Votto 3-9, 2B

The Mets batters will get a chance to look at Arroyo who is 9-12 with a 5.09 ERA. In the month of September, he has pitched 24.1 innings over 4 starts with a 4.81 ERA (he has had two incredible starts and two terrible starts). When he played against the Mets this year, he pitched 6.0 innings, allowed 7 hits, 5 runs, 4 earned. The Mets have the following numbers against Bronson:

Reyes 9-33, 4 2B, HR
Wright 7-31, HR
Harris 6-21
Paulino 6-17, 3 2B

Let’s Go Mets!
