The New York Mets and Pittsburgh Pirates have dug themselves quite the holes in their respective divisions.
Both will look to close this 3 game set out with a W as Pittsburgh took the opener in dominating pitching fashion.
The Pittsburgh Pirates were Wild Card Game participants last season. That looks to be their only chance this year, as they have dug themselves a giant hole in the NL Central.
Currently, they find themselves 11.5 games back of the Cubs in 3rd place and losing ground everyday as the Cubs are setting the pace for a historic run.
Right now though, Pittsburgh must focus on getting their pitching staff figured out. Ace Gerrit Cole was put on the DL, which doesn’t help out the cause by any means either. The Pirates currently sit with a team ERA of 4.18, which ranks 18th in the majors.
Pittsburgh will send out Juan Nicasio here in this one. The RH is 5-5 on the season with a 5.34 ERA, which has been a major issue for all the starters, as they sit with high ERAs.
Nicasio lasted just 1 inning last time out, as he allowed 6 runs to the Cardinals.
The Mets have started to fade a bit in the NL East and inconsistent play over the last couple weeks has led to that.
New York has dropped 3 straight overall, one of those include the series opener back on Tuesday, as they have had a lot of inconsistencies on the offensive side.
For what was supposed to be a high powered offense, New York has averaged just 3.63 runs per game. That number shrinks to 3.25 when they play inside Citi Field.
They’ll send out the vet Bartolo Colon here to try and cap the series off. Colon just continues to give the Mets chances to win as he sits with a 5-3 record and an ERA of 3.08.
Colon recorded a win last time out, going 7.0 innings, allowing just 1 run against the Brewers.
