New York Mets
The Mets have only lost six times all season, two of which came over the weekend in a three-game series with Atlanta. New York got back on track on Tuesday, though, beating the Cardinals, 6–5.
Zack Wheeler only lasted four innings before Terry Collins took the ball from him. He gave it to Matt Harvey, the Mets’ latest bullpen addition and starting rotation demotion.
Harvey gave up one run in two innings in his new role, striking out two and walking one. The Mets’ ‘pen shut it down from there, giving up nothing in the last four innings and allowing the offense to come back and win it in 10.
Michael Conforto walked thrice as the leadoff man and Yo Cespedes drove in three runs hitting directly behind him.
Steven Matz has given up 83 hits in less than 67 innings thus far. The fact that New York has thrived without him pitching well is a positive sign.
St. Louis Cardinals
The momentum St. Louis built up from a weekend sweep of the Reds is gone now. Tommy Pham went 3-for-3 but Luke Weaver struggled in a three-run fifth inning, a frame he didn’t make it out of, and Matt Bowman gave it up in the 10th.
St. Louis doesn’t have the excellent pitching we’ve been used to it having for a long, long time. But it’s pitching isn’t a disaster and has a lot of potential to get better throughout the season because it’s young and relatively inexperienced.
Michael Wacha is about the one guy who we know what to expect from these days. He starts in this game.
I do like the Cardinals’ batting lineup, though. It’s deep, gritty and consistent. The Cards will hit all year, if you ask me.
