TV - SNY - Radio - WOR 710 AM - 3:35PM
Preview:The New York Mets look to take the rubber game of the 3 game set from the Angels and it would mark their third straight series win. The Mets also have not seen the .500 mark all season, same goes for the Angels. The Mets will have to face LHP C.J. Wilson to accomplish that. Only five current Mets have faced him and they only are batting a career .139 off him. Curtis Granderson has 16 AB's vs Wilson and batting .188 vs him. The Mets will have to use Andrew Brown (prob DH) and Josh Satin (1B) to counter the odds. Career against Wilson, Right hand hitters are batting .252 and lefties are batting .192 off him. Wilson won the last time out (9-1) vs the Astros on the April 7th, he went 8 innings, gave up 4 hits, and 7 K's . He threw 120 pitchers, 71 for strikes.
The Mets will send veteran RHP Bartolo Colon to the hill, who seems to be a strike throwing machine these days.. His last game he won (4-0) and he threw 101 pitches, 70 for strikes. He also went 7 innings, gave up 6 hits, no runs, and K'd 5. In two starts, he has pitched 211 pitches and 145 of them were for strikes. That's 69%... Colon knows the Angels far too well. In his career he is 12-6 with a 3.16 ERA vs the Angels. That is over 23 starts. This Group of Angels have had some success against Bartolo. The collectively bat .267 with 4 HR's and 17 RBIs. Mike Trout has two career HR's vs Colon. Albert Pujols and Raul Ibanez have one HR each off Colon in their careers. Back to Trout, he owns Colon batting .500 (not a misprint) 7 for 14 off him.
It's going to interesting if Bartolo Colon can baffle the Angels or Blunder in Anaheim. Should be a high scoring affair, but maybe not?.... LGM!
