New York Mets Look To Build Momentum At Home After Successful Road Trip

Pitching Matchups

Game 1: Noah Syndergaard, RHP vs. Raisel Iglesias, RHP

Syndergaard has been the biggest story so far this year among pitchers. He is 2-0 with a 0.96 ERA and 29 strikeouts in 20 innings. Along with him throwing a variety of 90+ mph pitches, including his 95 mph slider, it’s somewhat common for the man they call “Thor” to reach triple digits. Right now, it’s obvious he’s the ace of this young Mets staff.

He will go up against a tough Cuban right hander in Raisel Iglesias who is off to a solid start himself at 1-1 with a 3.09 ERA.

Game 2: Bartolo Colon, RHP vs. Brandon Finnegan, LHP

Colon has gotten off to a decent start at 1-1 with a 2.89 ERA. He has been consistent at what he’s expected to do, going at least into the sixth inning and not giving up more than three runs.

Brandon Finnegan will oppose him. He is a former Kansas City Royals pitcher who was a part of K.C.’s 2014 World Series run as a reliever in his first year in the majors. Now he is a starter for Cincy and off to a decent start himself at 1-1 with a 3.74 ERA.

Game 3: Matt Harvey. RHP vs. Jon Moscot, RHP

Harvey finally picked up his first win of 2016 although it was another sort of average start for him in Atlanta. Harvey gave up two runs in five innings in that start. He has clearly not been the pitcher we’ve expected this season but the Mets are hoping the win could get him going confidence wise.

The 24-year old Moscot will oppose him. Moscot first burst into the majors late last season. So far this season, he is 0-1 with a 5.06 ERA.
