The Mets try to avoid the four game sweep today as they take on the Rockies in an afternoon game. Tyler Chatwood will get the start for the Rockies today as Collin McHugh will be making his major league debut. McHugh, who has been described as Gee-esque, 7-9 over 143.2 innings this season in two minor leagues. In that stretch he has an ERA of 2.88, a WHIP of 1.143 and a K/9 of 8.3. Obviously, since this is his major league debut, he has no major league stats against any batters on the Rockies roster.
The Mets bats will look to wake up against the Rockies and Tyler Chatwood, who is 3-3 on the season with an ERA of 5.46 over 31.1 innings. He just starting games this month, and had his worst one by far his last time out allowing 6 ER over 4.0 innings. The following Mets have numbers against Chatwood:
Turner 1-3, 2B
Let’s Go Mets!
