New York Mets
The New York Mets will play in a series without Jay Bruce, for the first time in years. Bruce was traded Thursday to the Cleveland Indians for prospects. The Mets have gone in to complete rebuild mode.
Don’t expect them to be done either. With the off season around the corner, expect more veterans to be traded.
Seth Lugo (5-3, 4.55 ERA) gets his start tonight against the Phillies. Lugo has not faced the Phillies this season. He has also struggled on the road this year. In seven outings (six starts), he is 4-2 with a 5.26 ERA.
Opposing hitters average .309 against Lugo on the road.
The Phillies are 5-5 over their last 10 games. Winning their most recent game last night, 3-2 at Atlanta.
Philadelphia only had five hits for the game, but able to generate three runs out of it.
The Phillies are 17 games under .500 and 28-23 at home this season.
Nick Pivetta (4-7, 5.89 ERA) starts for the Phillies. Pivetta pitched his best game of the season against the Mets this year. He pitched seven innings, of one hit, one run ball.
He did however give up a home run in that game, but held the Mets lineup to a .050 batting average over seven innings.
