2018 Season

Mets Pre-Game Report – 4/11/18

The Mets hope to sweep a 3-game series and notch their eighth win in a row tonight, as they take on the Miami Marlins.

The Mets stole a victory last night, in a game where they trailed 6-4 in the bottom of the eighth. A late-inning rally fueled by home runs hit by Wilmer Flores and Asdrubal Cabrera, plus a two-run triple by Yoenis Cespedes, put the Mets ahead for good. Jeurys Familia was able to close the door for his sixth save on the season.

Unfortunately, Travis d’Arnaud has been placed on the 10-day disabled list for a partially torn UCL in his right elbow, which could require Tommy John surgery that would end his season prematurely. The Mets recalled Tomas Nido from Triple-A Las Vegas to replace d’Arnaud.

Zack Wheeler will make his season debut tonight, as he will pitch against Jarlin Garcia (0-0, 1.80 in 2 starts). Wheeler began the season in Triple-A Las Vegas, and made his season debut on Friday where he allowed one run on three hits and a walk in five innings, while striking out five hitters.
