The Mets go for the two-game sweep tonight at Citi Field against the Yankees!

Last night was the first time in the history of the Subway Series that both teams each hit two homers in the first inning of the game. The Yankees tried to drain the life out of stadium in the first inning with two solo shots, the Mets responded with four runs in the bottom of the first. Taijuan Walker battled back and turned in six good innings against one of the best offenses in baseball and Edwin Díaz recorded a four out save.

All of last night’s energy now gets passed to the most intense pitcher on the Mets staff – Max Scherzer. Scherzer has made 12 starts and pitched 75 innings this year with a 2.28 ERA, 2.48 FIP, 0.893 WHIP and a 176 ERA+. In his last six starts he has allowed only eight runs, seven earned, over 38 innings (1.66 ERA, 1.94 FIP) while striking out 49 batters. The Yankees have the following numbers against Scherzer:

  • Matt Carpenter 7-28, 3 2B, BB, 9 K
  • Anthony Rizzo 5-18, 2B, HR, BB, 2 K
  • Josh Donaldson 2-14, 3B, 4 BB, 3 K
  • Aaron Hicks 0-13, BB, 5 K
  • DJ LeMahieu 4-9, 3 K
  • Aaron Judge 2-6, 2B, 3 K
  • Gleyber Torres 0-5, BB, 3 K
  • Marwin Gonzalez 2-5

The Mets bats will face Domingo German tonight who is making his second start since returning from the 60-day injured list. German was diagnosed with right should impingement syndrome in March this year, which is a similar injury that he suffered last year as well. In his first start back last week, he allowed five runs from six hits and a walk over three innings against the Astros while tossing 58 pitches. The Mets have the following career numbers against him:

  • Mark Canha 6-9, 2B, HR, BB, K
  • Francisco Lindor 0-7, 2 BB, 2 K
  • Brandon Nimmo 1-3, 2B, BB, 2 K
  • Pete Alonso 1-3, 2B, K
  • Jeff McNeil 1-3, HR
  • J.D. Davis 1-2, HR, K
