Both of Aaron Nola’s starts this season have come against the Washington Nationals. He’s been good in both, giving up four earned runs in 11 innings pitched combined. He looks poised to bounce back from a rough 2016, like many fans expected that he would.
But the offense will deal with Noah Syndergaard. Maikel Franco and Freddy Galvis are a combined 6-for-20 against him, which is the good part. Otherwise, the Phillies have combined to go just 4-for-42 against Thor in their young careers.

And Syndergaard looks improved from last season when he would occasionally run into some trouble when he couldn’t get a punch out.
He’s still got 20 strikeouts in 21 innings pitched this season, but Syndergaard looks more comfortable pitching to contact now and trying to get guys to make outs when they’re just up there trying to protect the plate. He only struck out four in his most recent start against Miami, giving up one run in six quality innings.
Thor should be good, though there were a few spots last year where I got over-confident in spots where he faced really bad teams and got burned a couple times. He must continue to be willing to pitch to contact if the Philadelphia bats get frisky.
Thursday also marks the return of Jeurys Familia who was suspended for a domestic violence incident last last year after the Mets’ season had already concluded. That frees up Addison Reed to be the Mets’ top reliever before the ninth innings, where he will enter high leverage situations to get New York out of trouble.

Free Philadelphia Phillies vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction: the Phillies slap the ball around.
All you have to do it get some wood on Thor’s fastball and it will get into the outfield. Philadelphia has some young hitters who won’t fear Syndergaard and with Nola on the other side, I could see an upset.
