The Rockies travel to Queens as the Mets look to move past their disappointing series with the Royals. Over the weekend the Mets started off great winning an extra inning game but then fell flat in another extra inning game before losing on Sunday. They also lost David Wright for a month, but that’s another story. Tonight Jenrry Mejia takes the mound as he goes up against Tyler Chatwood.
Jenrry Mejia is 1-1 this season over two starts with a 2.08 ERA over 13.0 innings. More specifically, after tossing a seven innings of shutout ball in his first start, in his second start he allowed 3 ER over 6 innings, which is still quality. He has faced the Rockies for one inning of relief where he allowed 1 ER over 1 inning of work. Only three current Rockies have faced him (Tulo, Helton, Fowler) and they are all 0-1.
The Mets bats will try to rough up Tyler Chatwood who is 7-4 over 15 games with a 3.15 ERA. Tyler is coming off of a rough start where he allowed 8 runs, 7 earned in 2.1 innings. He faced the Mets earlier this season and allowed only one earned run and 4 hits over 6.0 innings of work. The Mets have the following numbers against him:
Turner 1-3, 2B
Lets Go Mets!
