Game Preview: Mets @ Blue Jays
The Mets make the journey up north to America’s Hat to open up an interleague series against the Toronto Blue Jays tonight. The Mets split each of their last two series and finally got firing on all cylinders yesterday as they rolled past the Reds by a score 9-4. The Mets made a comeback bid, went for the kill in the bottom of the eighth and then held it for the ninth. In tonight’s game, Niese will get the start against Ricky Romero.
Niese is 2-1 over 7 starts and 39.2 innings with an ERA of 3.40. In his last two starts he has pitched 11.0 innings with 2 ER. Niese has never faced Toronto, which makes sense. Despite never actually facing the Jays, Niese has some numbers against some current members of Toronto’s ball club:
Johnson 4-10, 2B
Romero is 4-1 on the season over 8 starts and 53.1 innings of work. In his last three starts he is 1-1 with a 5.12 ERA where he pitched 19.1 innings of work where he allowed 11 ER. He walked and striked out 13 batters over those 19.1 innings. Being a Blue Jay his entire career means he has never faced the Mets. It’s not surprising that the Mets have limited exposure to Ricky:
