The Mets and Reds play game two this afternoon as the Mets try to get out on the right foot. Last night the Mets offense stuttered and suffered another injury as Jason Bay went down with another concussion. And honestly, at this point, from a human perspective, you have to be worried because as we all know head injuries are serious let alone multiple head injuries. Anyway, Jon Niese looks to take down the Reds offense today as the Mets bats look to bring that Tampa charm on Homer Bailey.
Niese is 4-2 on the season with a 3.69 ERA over 12 starts and 68.1 innings of work. In his last two starts, Niese has pitched 13.0 innings while allowing 0 earned runs (2 unearned runs in his last start). Last season he picked up the win against the Reds in one start while allowing 5 ER over 5 innings of work. The Reds have the following numbers against Niese:
Valdez 7-19, 3 2B
Phillips 5-10, 2B, 2 HR
Votto 2-8, HR
Bailey is 4-4 on the season with a 4.35 ERA over 12 starts and 72.1 innings of work. In his last two starts he has pitched a combined 9.2 innings and has allowed 9 ER but has also struck out 9 batters. Last season, Bailey pitched against the Mets twice totaling 9.0 innings of work with 13 ER (or a 13.0 ERA). The Mets have the following numbers on Homer:
Hairston 2-7, HR
Duda 2-2, 2B
Let’s Go Mets!
