The 26-year-old Dominican is looking for his first home win of the season and second in Queens since 2014.Montero yielded 7 hits and 4 runs (two earned) while walking one and striking out five over six innings in his last start, a 0-5 home loss to the Cardinals on Tuesday.
The fourth-year major-leaguer has posted a 3.50 ERA over his last three starts (compared to a 10.81 ERA over his first two starts this season) and is 0-1 with a 3.86 ERA in four career appearances (two starts) versus American League opponents.
In the matter of fact, Montero has received three or fewer runs of support in three of his previous five starts, but now he can hope for bigger support from his teammates, given the fact that the Mets have averaged 5.75 runs during their four-game winning streak and have a .280 batting average, with 62 runs and 18 HR in nine games after the All-Star break (6-3).
The A’s will give the ball to Daniel Gossett (1-5 with a 5.79 ERA) for his eighth MLB start.The rookie right-hander pitched well in his last start, in which he yielded 7 hits and 3 runs while walking one and striking out three through seven innings in Monday’s 2-3 home loss to the Rays.
On the other hand, Gossett went 1-3 with a 6.75 ERA in four home contests, as the 24-year-old lasted less than six innings in three of those four outings.He gave up 6 hits and a career-high six earned runs (including two homers to Marcell Ozuna and Tyler Moore) over 3 1/3 innings in his lone interleague start, a 6-11 loss at Marlins Park on June 14.Gossett has never faced the Mets or may of their hitters before.
I think that the New York Mets will complete a three-game sweep of the A’s.
