New York Mets vs Washington Nationals (By: Mulder)
The Nats lost the first 3 games of the series ...
-Nationals are 5-2 in their last 7 games after losing the first 3 games of a series.
And if someone can stop the bleeding, it should be RHP Strasburg. Indeed, the hard throwing rightie is one of the best pitchers this season stuff wise because he pitched even better than his 3.32 ERA: 11.35 K/9, 2.22 BB/9, 0.97 HR/9, 53.9 GB%.
He posted a 2.84 ERA this season against the Mets in 12.2 IP with even a much better 1.11 FIP (!).
-Nationals are 16-2 in Strasburgs last 18 starts during game 4 of a series.
LHP Steven Matz will start for the Mets. He is 3-3 with a 3.96 ERA but he pitched worse than that: 8.84 K/9, 2.09 HR/9.
Matz is 1-5 against the Nats with a 3.60 ERA.
Nationals are solid against lefties with a .348 wOBA ( 4th in advanced stats ).
Nationals are 10-1 in Strasburgs last 11 road starts vs. Mets.
Strasburg to give that terrible Nats bullpen a break, especially when he goes like 7 innings, but still prefer to avoid that Nats bullpen.
