The Mets did better last night than they did Monday night, but still fell flat against the Nationals. Yesterday Gee wasn’t at his best, the offense didn’t fully click (although d’Arnaud had a good night at the plate) and the Mets lost Justin Turner to injury. Tonight Zack Wheeler gets the nod to get the Mets back on the right track against Dan Haren.
Wheeler, who is heading towards his 2013 season inning cap, is 7-4 this season with a 3.38 ERA over 88.0 innings. In his last 6 starts now he has a 2.65 ERA over 37.1 innings with 34 strikeouts. In two games against the Nationals this year, he has allowed 7 ER over 11.1 innings. The Nationals have the following numbers against the Mets:
LaRoche 1-5, HR
Span 4-6, 2B
Desmond 2-5, 2B
Dan Haren is 8-13 over 27 games and 144.2 innings this season posting an ERA of 5.23. In his last three starts he has pitched 12.2 innings allowing 16 ER, which is a terrible, 11.37, ERA. In three starts against the Mets this season he has pitched 13.2 innings allowing 13 ER. The Mets have the following numbers against him:
Murphy 4-12, 2B, HR
Young 3-6, 2B
Duda 1-4, 2B
Lets Go Mets!
