Washington Nationals (1-0) vs New York Mets (0-1)
Pitching Probables - Gio Gonzalez vs Bartolo Colon
The New York Mets look to win their first game of the year against the Washington Nationals. Bartolo Colon will have his first introduction to the Citi Faithful. Only three batters have faced Colon in the past...
that's why the Mets decided better to pitch him in a minor league scrimmage, instead of a normal spring game. The combined Average for batter are .250 against him. Nate McLouth could see action against him because he is batting .667 off him
The New York Mets will face the masterful, Gio Gonzalez. The Mets have faced the likes of before and as a current team they are only batting .180 off him. Only four players are hitting over .300. Ike Davis is batting .333 with a HR, Ruben Tejada is batting .333, David Wright is batting .308 with a HR - Wright has hit the cycle off Gonzalez, and Chris Young (if he plays) is batting also .333 in three at bats. Those four players combine for 11 for 34 (.324) off him with 3 2B, 1 3B, 2 HR's and 4 RBI's. Interesting Note: Curtis Granderson has seen Gonzalez from the AL, he is only batting .125 off him (2 for 16) with a HR.
Should be a battle for the Mets....Especially if the Nats Jump out on top early
