The Mets start their final home series of the season tonight as they host the Pirates. Jenry Mejia gets the nod for the Amazins tonight as he looks to rebound from his first start of the season. So far in 3 games this season, he has allowed 6 ER in 6 innings of work, and in his last outing he allowed 3 hits and no runs in 1.0 innings of work. In 2010 he pitched 2.1 innings against the Pirates walking 2 batters and allowing one unearned run. The Pirates have the following numbers against Jenry:

Sanchez 2-5, 2 2B
McCutchen 0-1
Alverez 0-1
Tabata 0-1

McPherson is 0-1 over 8 games and 2 starts on the season pitching 16 innings with a 2.25 ERA. In his last start he allowed 2 ER over 4.1 innings while allowing 7 hits. Kyle has never faced the Mets at the major league level as a rookie this year, thus has no official AB’s against the Mets. Total mystery.

Let’s Go Mets!
