Cardinals Hold Advantage on the Mound
The Mets have been one of the best teams in baseball in 2022. They have been struggling by any standard. This pitching matchup is one place where St. Louis has the ability to impose itself.
This is St. Louis’ pitcher Miles Mokalis, who has had six consecutive stellar starts. The 33-year-old is 3-1, and ranks third in the MLB in the ERA (1. 49), 11th in the league in WHIP (0. 94) and has 31 strikeouts in 42.1 innings. Mikolas is a pitcher who has been able to go seven innings in the last four games. He has allowed two or less runs in six consecutive appearances, and has not allowed more than four hits.
Trevor Williams’ performance this season for the Mets has been disappointing, though he’s been a reliable player throughout his career. Williams makes his second appearance of the season – he has appeared in just four games from the bullpen and is 0-2 so far with a 5. 73 ERA, 1. 64 WHIP and nine strikeouts in 11 innings.
He was still good his last outing. Williams pitched 3.2 innings and gave up only two hits against Nationals. He plans to continue that success.
Mets Want to Return to Form
The Mets currently hold the NL East’s first-place position. They have lost consecutive games just once this season and that was back on April 10-11. Although they have been one of the best stories this year, their story has fallen apart in the last three weeks.
New York is just 9-8 in its past 17 games and have been outscored by three runs in that stretch (they had outscored their opponents by 38 runs in the first 18 games this season). Part of their struggles is that four of their best hitters are now cold. Francisco Lindor (5-for-26), Jeff McNeil (4-for-24) Mark Canha (3-for-18) and Eduardo Escobar (1-for-24) are a combined 13-for-92 with one home run and two doubles in the past seven days.
St. Louis, meanwhile (prior to Sunday night’s offensive explosion) hadn’t scored all that consistently this season, ranking in the middle of the league (15th) in runs scored.
Despite this, Nolan Arenado and Paul Goldschmidt remain the Cardinals’ most formidable offensive threat. Goldschmidtt hit three runs Sunday, including a homer and a double. He is now hitting. 312 with a . 394 OPS.
Arenado is top 15 in the league in most major stats too, batting . 312 (T-15), seven home runs (T-15th), 27 RBIs (T-4th) and . 952 OPS (8th).
For New York, we are going to highlight Brandon Nimmo, a hot outfielder. Nimmo went 11-for-24 last week with five walks – a . 567 OBP. OBP. He has also been consistent against righties throughout the year. 291 with a . 398 OPS.
HTML2_ On the flip side, you want someone who is a natural on the road. That’s Tommy Edman. Edman hits. 271 away from home with a . 368 OPS. and is second on the team in home runs away from home (2) and RBIs (10).
