The Mets look to get back on the right track tonight as they take on the Marlins in Miami. Before the Nationals series the Mets were firing on all cylinders. They opened up the series with a tremendous win on both sides of the ball and since then things have slightly unraveled. Anyway Jeremy Hefner takes the ball tonight looking to bounce back in the second half as he goes up against Jacob Turner. It has been a struggle in the second half for Hefner. On the season he is 4-8 with a 4.17 ERA over 114.1 innings of work. Since the All-Star break though he has pitched 6.1 innings allowing 14 runs, 13 earned. He hasn’t faced the Marlins since his season debut where he went 6.0 strong innings allowing only 1 ER. The Marlins have the following numbers against Hefner: Pierre 3-9 Solano 3-9 Polanco 3-10 Ruggiano 0-8 Stanton 1-10 Dobbs 2-9, HR The Mets bats will try to do some damage against one of the bright spots for the Marlins this year, Jacob Turner. Turner is 3-3 over 10 games this season with a 2.49 ERA with 65 innings under his belt. He has pitched 24.0 innings in July with a 3.75 ERA, so not as good as June. His season debut was against the Mets where he pitched 7.0 scoreless innings. The Mets have the following numbers against him: Murphy 2-8 Wright 0-8 Davis 2-8, 2B Buck 1-3 Byrd 0-2 Lets Go Mets!
