The Mets start a series with the Diamondbacks tonight fresh off dropping a series with the Nationals. Yesterday the wheels (really no pun intended, I say this a lot) fell off for the Mets as they just couldn’t get anything positive going. The game ended with Recker pitching, which is, well a white flag. Anyway, Shaun Marcum pitches for the Mets tonight as he faces Wade Miley. Marcum is 1-9 on the season pitching 67.1 innings with a 5.08 ERA. He had two bad outings in a row before his last one where shut out his opponents for 8.0 innings. The last time he faced the Diamondbacks was back in 2011 where he allowed 7 hits and 4 ER over 6.0 innings of work. The Diamondbacks have the following numbers against him: Kubel 4-14, 2B Bloomquist 3-10 Prado 2-9, 2B Montero 3-5, 2B, HR Chavez 2-5, 2B Parra 1-5 The Mets bats will try to figure out Wade Miley. Miley is 4-7 over 16 starts with a 4.55 ERA while pitching 95.0 innings and striking out 69 batters. In the month of June he made five starts 30.1 innings with a 3.56 ERA. Last year he was 0-1 over 2 games and 11.1 innings allowing 16 hits and 7 ER. The Mets have the following numbers against Miley: Brown 0-5 Murphy 2-6, 2B Wright 1-4 Young 0-3 Buck 1-2, 2B Lets Go Mets!   Tweet
