The Mets look to forget their last series with the Marlins in its entirety as they welcome the Nationals into New York. The last time the Mets were in New York, they swept the Yankees, let’s hope that’s the Mets team we see tonight as Hefner takes the mounds for the Mets and takes on Zimmermann. Jeremy Hefner is 1-5 this season over 57.0 innings with a 4.74 ERA. In his last two starts he has pitched 12.0 innings with a 3.75 ERA as he has become a more stable part of the Mets rotation (most of the time at least). Against the Nationals earlier this season he allowed 3 ER over 4.0 innings of work. The Nationals have the following numbers against Hefner: LaRoche 2-10, HR Espinosa 5-10, 2 2B, 2 HR Zimmerman 2-8 Desmond 1-8, HR Lombardozzi 2-6 Jordan Zimmermann is 8-3 over 11 games this season pitching 79.2 innings with a 2.37 ERA and a league leading 3 complete games. Jordan has become one of the best pitchers in baseball this season. He is also coming off of by far his worst start of the season where he allowed 7 ER over 6 innings of work which saw his season ERA jump from 1.71 to 2.37. Earlier this season against the Mets he allowed 2 ER over 5.0 innings of work. The Mets have the following numbers against Jordan: Wright 9-28, 2 2B, 2 HR Murphy 7-24, 2 2B, HR Davis 4-16, 2B, HR Buck 4-13, 2B, HR Duda 2-12, 2B Valdespin 1-7, HR Lets Go Mets! Tweet
