The Mets will try to put last night behind them as they take on the Pirates in game two of this series. Last night’s game was filled with errors for the Mets as they had a 4-0 lead at one point and just watched the lead slip away. The Mets will try to get on the consistent, right track behind R.A. Dickey tonight as he takes on James McDonald.
Dickey is 5-1 on the season with a 3.75 ERA. In the month of May he has made three starts with a 2-0 record over 20.0 innings and a 2.70 ERA. Last season Dickey was the hard luck loser against the Pirates as he was 0-2 over two starts while pitching 15.2 innings with a 2.30 ERA. The Pirates have the following numbers against Dickey:
Tabata 3-9, 2B
Jones 4-10, 2B
The Mets bats will look to score some run support off of James McDonald who is 3-2 over 50.1 innings of work with an ERA of 2.68. In the month of May he made three starts with a 2-1 record over 20.0 innings and a 2.25 ERA. In 2011 he was 1-0 in two starts against the Mets where he pitched 12 innings while allowing 3 ER. The Mets have the following numbers against McDonald:
Davis 3-6, 3 2B
Torres 1-5, 2B
