Last week’s no-decision against the New York Mets marked Gerrit Cole’s second straight subpar start. The Pittsburgh ace went five innings, allowed 10 hits, including three home runs and four runs. He walked one and only struck out three in a game the Pirates eventually won, 5-4.
He didn’t make it out of the fifth in the start before that, serving up two more home runs to the Atlanta Braves in a 5-2 loss that dropped his record to 2-5.
Of course, Cole has been much better than his record indicates. He’s got a 3.65 ERA with a 1.20 WHIP and went on a run of eight straight quality starts before the Atlanta game.
New York Mets
The Mets couldn’t manage a run against Chase Anderson, as the Brewers’ starter put together his second straight stellar outing on Thursday to help the Crew win, 2-1.
Wilmer Flores homered in the eighth but it wasn’t enough and the Mets only ended up with a four-game split after winning the first two games in the series.
Matt Harvey starts on Friday night. His last start was also against Pittsburgh, six innings, six hits and just one run allowed. It was the first time he got through six innings since April 21st.
Harvey has walked the seventh-most batters in the National League coming into Friday’s start. The 28 walks issued don’t compare very nicely to just 41 strikeouts.

Free Pittsburgh Pirates vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction: Cole gets a rare win.
I’ve made the Pirates small favorites in this one so I’m going to play Pittsburgh. Harvey was good the last time but I’m skeptical he can make it two in a row. Cole is the superior starting pitcher.
