The Mets and Nationals play game three today after splitting the day/night double header yesterday. The constants in yesterday’s games were the starting pitching and Daniel Murphy. The starters Mejia and Harvey both had tremendous games and Murphy was on fire in both games. The difference was the rest of the lineup which roared to a 11-0 victory in the opener and could only score one game in the night cap because that’s baseball folks. Dillon Gee gets the nod for the Amazins this afternoon as he goes up against Dan Haren. Dillon Gee is 7-7 over 20 games this season with a 4.07 ERA while pitching 117.1 innings. Gee is back on track after his burp on July 9th. In his last two starts he has allowed one run, no earned over 13.2 innings of work while striking out 5 batters. This will be his fourth game against the Nationals this season where he has allowed only 2 ER over 18.2 innings of work so far. The Nationals have the following numbers against him: Werth 7-25, 2B Desmond 5-23, 2 HR Zimmerman 4-19, 2B LaRoche 3-14, 2B Bernadina 4-14, 2 2B, HR Dan Haren is 4-11 on the season where he has made 18 starts with a 5.79 ERA pitching 98.0 innings allowing a major league leading 21 homers. He started July off well pitching 11.0 innings allowing 2 ER  in 2 starts but in his last start he allowed 5 ER over 5 innings of work. In his only start against the Mets allowed 5 ER over 4 innings. The Mets have the following numbers against Haren: Byrd 10-18, 2 2B, 3B, 2 HR Wright 5-18, 2 2B, 2 HR Buck 2-13 Murphy 3-7, 2B, HR Davis 1-4 Young 1-1, 2B Lets Go Mets! Tweet
