The Mets try to forget about this past homestand and their problems at home as they hit the road again, this time to face the Brewers. Jon Niese gets the start for the Mets and he is 10-9 this season over 27 games and 171.0 innings of work while posting an ERA of 3.47. In his last seven games he has pitched 47.1 innings while posting an ERA of 2.47. The last time he faced the Brewers he pitched 7 innings allowing only 1 ER. The Brewers have the following numbers against Jon:

Ramirez 3-11, HR
Morgan 4-9
Weeks 4-8, 2B, HR
Hart 2-8, 2B
Braun 2-5
Gomez 0-3

Mike Fiers has a 9-7 record this year over 109.1 innings with an ERA of 3.05. He’s 3-3 in his last 6 starts while pitching 29.1 innings with an ERA of 6.44. Fiers hasn’t faced the Mets this year or last year, which would be the length of his career, and he hasn’t faced anyone on the Mets roster in a major league game.
