Arizona (A Young) – NY Mets (M Stroman) Match Prediction | 12-09-2019 13:10

The Mets tied it up at four in the fifth and had a chance to go ahead with the bases loaded and one out, but Amed Rosario grounded out, forcing Mickey Callaway to pinch hit for Thor with Todd Frazier. They scored one in the third, one in the fourth, two in the fifth, three in the sixth and three in the seventh off Syndergaard and a revolving door of Mets relievers. The pinch hitter struck out to end the threat, and Philadelphia went ahead for good in the following inning. The Mets teed off on Vince Velasquez in the first with back-to-back home runs by Wilson Ramos and Robinson Cano to give Noah Syndergaard a 3-0 lead, but the Phillies chipped away slowly. The Mets slogged through a Sunday afternoon as they fell 10-7 in another disheartening defeat. At four hours and 29 minutes, it clocked in as the longest nine-inning game in franchise history and the second-longest nine-inning game in National League history.

The feat matched the franchises single-season record, tying Darryl Strawberry in 1987 and Jose Reyes in 2008. In the loss, Alonso reached base for the 33rd straight game. He can break the record on Monday night, although he still has a little bit to go to match John Oleruds record of 44 games, which he accomplished at the end of the 1998 season and extended into 1999. Over the course of those 33 games, Alonso is slashing .308/.391/.609 with 11 home runs, seven doubles, and a 157 wRC+.

Arizona entered Sunday as winners of 12 out of 13 games before falling to the Cincinnati Reds. The two losses theyve suffered in their last 14 games happened in their opponents final at-bat. Even with yesterdays loss, the Diamondbacks remain the hottest team in the National League as they have moved within a stones throw of the Cubs for that playoff spot.

They also put together a four-run fourth which ended an ineffective Stromans evening. On a positive note, four Mets relievers combined to toss five scoreless innings in defeat. Meanwhile, Cesar Hernandez hit a lead-off home run off Marcus Stroman that gave Philadelphia all the runs they would need. The Mets suffered a hangover from their late-inning win on Saturday and only managed five hits against Drew Smyly and two Phillies relievers. They left nine runners on base an went hitless in 11 at-bats with runners in scoring position.


He lasted a career-best eight innings and scattered two hits while walking one to pick up the win. After making his major league debut on June 27, hes been a big boost to Arizonas rotation as theyve made their move in the NL Wild Card race. The Mets will face their third rookie pitcher over the four-game series on Thursday afternoon. In his last start, the 25-year-old set a new Diamondbacks rookie record by striking out 12 Reds hitters en route to his seventh win.

For the first time in his major league career, Wilmer Flores will suit up against the Mets rather than as a member of the orange and blue. Flores missed the earlier series this season in Arizona after landing on the injured list. Expect Flores,, who became a fan favorite after nearly getting traded to the Brewers in 2015 in the now-infamous failed Carlos Gomez trade and showed his emotions on the field, to get a video tribute and a huge standing ovation from the Flushing faithful.

Its safe to say that the New York Mets (59-56) are on fire right now. All of that winning has brought the Mets to within a game of a National League wild card spot, and the team holding the top spot is coming to town this weekend. First pitch for todays game is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. The Mets have won six straight games, including a four game sweep of the Miami Marlins earlier this week, and have gone a major league best 19-6 since the All Star Break. The Washington Nationals (61-53) are back in Queens to begin a massive three game series with the Mets tonight. at Citi Field.

deGrom is 6/11 on quality starts this season and four for his last six. And last Wednesday he held Washington to one run on two hits through six frames. But hes also allowed five runs or more three times already this season, after never doing that once in 32 starts last year. Monday he held the Dodgers to two runs on seven hits through five innings of a game New York eventually lost 9-5.

The right-hander dominated the Mets back on June 2, holding them to one earned run on six hits with a career-high ten strikeouts over 7.2 innings to pick up the win. It was only the second time that hes pitched beyond seven innings since the All Star break, and prior to this start he failed to get out of the fifth inning in his previous two starts. He struck out nine and walked two in a very impressive outing. The Mets will catch Kelly coming off one of the best starts of his major league career. The rookie scattered three hits over seven shutout innings against the San Diego Padres to earn his tenth win.
