Game Preview: Marlins vs Mets

The Mets almost came back to take one from the Marlins last night but fell just short of the comeback. Tonight the Mets will try to take the rubber game against the fish behind Jon Niese. Niese is 8-5 on the season with a 3.33 ERA and is coming off of a “complete game” 5 inning performance where he allowed one earned run making it now 4 straight games where he has done just that. This season he has made three starts against the Marlins with a 1-2 record and a 3.60 ERA. The Marlins have these numbers on Jon:

Maybin 3-8
Sanchez 3-8, 2B
Ramirez 0-5
Uggla 3-7, 2B

The Marlins will be sending out Sanchez to the mound with his 10-8 record and a 3.16 ERA. He has been great in his last 3 games as he has pitched 19.2 innings allowing only 2 ER, or a 0.92 ERA. Against the Mets this year he is 1-1 this season with a 4.62 ERA. The Mets have these numbers on Sanchez:

Francoeur 6-24, 2B, HR
Reyes 3-19, 2B
Wright 3-16
