IT’S T-SHIRT TUESDAY AT CITI
The Mets look to get back on the winning page today as they open up a three game set against the Phillies in Citi Field. If records for July were held constant, this three game set, and the next (Cubs) will be the only 6 games the Mets will play against teams below .500. Anyway, the Phillies will send out Vance Worley today to take on Jon Niese.
Niese is 6-3 on the season with a 3.55 ERA over 15 starts and 88.2 innings. He made five starts in June, only one bad, thus he has a 3-1 record with a 1.89 ERA. He’s 1-0 over three starts against the Phillies this year totaling 16.2 innings with a 3.24 ERA. The Phillies have the following numbers against Jon:
Polanco 11-25, 5 2B
Rollins 6-25, 2B
Victorino 6-22, HR
Mayberry 7-22, 2B, 3 HR
Vance on the season is 4-4 with a 2.92 ERA over 12 starts and 74.0 innings of work. He made 5 starts in the month of June with a 1-2 record over 30 innings of work and a 2.70 ERA. He made one start against the Amazin’s this year where he picked up the loss in 6 innings, allowing 8 hits and 4 ER. The Mets have the following numbers against Vance:
Thole 3-9, 2B
Turner 4-10, 2 2B
Wright 3-10, HR
Duda 3-7, 2B, HR
Let’s Go Mets!
