The Mets try to get away from the horrible series they just played with Philly as they invite the Marlins up to New York. Jon Niese is 11-9 over 28 games while pitching 177.0 innings while posting a 3.46 ERA. In his last 12 innings in two games he has allowed only 3 ER while striking out 7 batters. The Phillies have the following numbers against Niese:

Rollins 7-33, 2 2B
Mayberry 9-28, 2 2B, 3 HR
Ruiz 6-17, HR
Utley 2-15
Howard 1-15

The Mets will get a look at the young pitcher, Jacob Turner who is making his 8th start of the year. Overall he is 2-3 with a 5.20 ERA while striking out 24 batters over 36.1 innings. He has played parts of two major league seasons, and this will be his first time facing the Mets as a ball club or anyone on the Mets.

Let’s Go Mets!
