New York Mets Look To Regain Momentum After Being Swept; Face Miami Marlins In A Three Game Set

Updated: May 18, 2023

The New York Mets are in Miami today to start a three-game set against the Marlins, an NLE rival team. The Mets are coming off a very depressing two game series against the Astros where they were swept, losing the first game 8-2 and the second game 5-3. The Mets come into Florida looking to get some momentum back against this sub .500% team. The Marlins enter play in their home stadium with a 32-36 record, giving them 4th place in the NLE as the Mets come in 45-26, 1st place in the NLE and overall they are the second best team in baseball, only behind the New York Yankees. The Mets recently faced the Marlins in a four game set, winning that series 3-1.

The first game (FRI 6:40pmEST) will feature Taijuan Walker on the mound for New York. Walker walks into the Marlins ballpark with a 5-2 record and 2.88 ERA through 59.1 IP. Sandy Alcantara comes into his home park in the midst of a possible CY Young season with an ERA of 1.72 through 99.1 IP, Alcantara is 7-2 in the win-loss column.

The second game (SAT 4:10pmEST) has Chris Bassitt on the mound for the Mets. Bassitt comes in with a 5-5 record, struggling in his last several starts as his ERA is a 4.03 through 82.2 IP. On the bump for Miami is Trevor Rogers as the southpaw comes in 3-6 with an inflated 5.83 ERA through 58.2 IP.

The third game (SUN 12:05pmEST on PEACOCK TV) does not have any starters listed but it is projected that the New York Mets will have Max Scherzer pitch as he comes off the IL. Scherzer is 5-1 with a 2.54 ERA on the season through 49.2 IP. It is expected that Daniel Castano will start for the Miami Marlins. Castano is yet to win this season sporting a 0-1 record, but his era is a low 2.57 through 14.0 IP this season.
