The Mets go out west to find themselves, or some wins. Preferably some wins. It would be nice to win again. How rude of me, I forgot to wish you a Happy Matt Harvey day! Today the Mets rookie pitcher makes his first of three West Coast starts to open up his major league career, but more on that later. Harvey goes up against Wade Miley tonight out in Arizona.
Harvey, who we must be careful not to paint as the savior of the team, is coming off of a strong spring training and a mostly strong minor league year. On the season he is 7-5 with a 3.68 ERA over 20 starts for the Bisons. His main weakness this year has been his control, which leads to his walks 3.9 BB/9. Obviously, he has no official AB’s against Major League batters.
The Mets bats will get a look at Wade Miley who is 11-5 over 15 games, 16 starts with a 3.02 ERA over 113.1 innings of work. In the month of July he has pitched 19.1 innings with a 3.72 ERA and is coming off of a strong 7 IP , 1 ER performance. Earlier this year he pitched 6.0 innings against the Mets while allowed 4 ER. The Mets have the following numbers against him:
Hairston 1-3, 2B
Murphy 1-3, 2B
Torres 2-3, 2B
Wright 1-1, 2 BB
Let’s Go Mets !
