Pittsburgh handed the Mets lost their 30th game of the year on Friday with a 12-7 win in game one of their series in New York.
Neither starting pitcher was any good. Matt Harvey gave up six runs in five innings and Gerrit Cole endured a five-run fifth inning to even get 15 outs. He gave up seven runs in his worst start of the season but became his third win.
That was because the Mets’ bullpen was a disaster. Paul Sewald started a clean sixth inning and retired just one of the eight batters he faced. That came immediately after the Mets took a 7-4 lead with five runs of their own.
Josh Bell and Elias Diaz homered for the Bucs, who made it 9-7 after five-and-a-half. The bullpen was great in relief of Cole, four guys each throwing a shutout inning.
Tyler Glasnow starts on Saturday evening, fresh off of five runs in five innings in a loss to these Mets earlier in the week.
New York Mets
Lucas Duda homered twice against Gerrit Cole in the loss that sends New York five games under .500.
The good news is that the bullpen will get some much-needed help after Saturday’s game when Robert Gsellman makes what is expected to be his last start before heading back to the bullpen.
The impending return of Seth Lugo and Steven Matz has Gsellman set to go back to where he started the season.
He has just started to get comfortable as a starter, having thrown two straight quality starts coming into Saturday’s outing.

Free Pittsburgh Pirates vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction: Gsellman outpitches Glasnow.
That’s all I’ve really got and I don’t even feel hot about that one. We hit Pittsburgh at even money last night and I think it’s best we stay far away from this one. I have New York as a -120 favorite so we have no advantage playing Pittsburgh at +120.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: No Action
I do lean the over, however, in a game that should see runs before the Mets get into their bullpen.
