The Mets roll into San Diego for a four game set after being swept by the Dodgers in rather close fashion. Last night the Dodgers came back, pushed the game into extras and were able to take it in the 12th as the Mets racked up more extra innings this season. Zack Wheeler looks to stop the slide tonight as he takes on Tyson Ross.
Zack Wheeler is 5-2 over 10 games with a 3.63 ERA over 57.0 innings. Wheeler made a good rebound start his last time out posting only 1 ER over 6.1 innings, the time before he allowed 4 ER over 5 innings. Zack was not up with the major league organization earlier this year when the Padres came to New York and he has not faced any specific batters on the Padres’s roster in a major league game before (so no batting stats).
Tyson Ross is 3-5 with a 2.75 ERA making 7 starts and pitching in 26 games overall this season totaling 72.0 innings with 62 strikeouts. He has made a string of four starts recently and he’s been very good in that stretch posting a 1.33 ERA over 27.0 innings. He has never faced the Mets before but two Mets have faced him, and are both 0-1 (Byrd and Young).
Lets Go Mets!
