Mets to host Brewers with MLB's best record

Mets to host Brewers with MLB's best record”

A far larger crowd will likely show up - and display a far greater awareness of what's going on - Friday night when the red-hot Mets return home to host the Milwaukee Brewers in the opener of a three-game series at Citi Field. The non-divisional foes will square off at 7:10 p.m. ET.

Mets lineup - Aside from a RBI bloop single from Cespedes, the Mets lineup lacked any production, mustering up just three, striking out eight times and bouncing into two double plays in the 5-1 loss. He threw six innings, allowing two runs on four hits with two walks and two strikeouts in a 3-0 Milwaukee loss. While he hasn't been lights out, he's still 2-0 on the year with a 3.94 ERA and 22 strikeouts in three games. The Mets were no-hit for the first six innings before breaking through against the Miami bullpen. Matz gave up four runs - three earned - and three hits in 5 1/3 innings.

Jeremy Jeffress got the final two outs of the seventh before Josh Hader struck out five in two ideal innings for his first big-league save. Granted, he faced a Cubs lineup that did not have Anthony Rizzo and Addison Russell but it was an important start after he allowed seven runs in his first outing of the year. Hader has only pitched 7.2 innings but has 17 strikeouts in his limited work.

Frazier hit his first two home runs with the Mets, new catcher Jose Lobaton tripled in his first at-bat with the team, and NY extended its winning streak to nine with a 6-5 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night. Harvey makes his third career start against the Brewers in this contest. Steven Matz will get the nod in game one and is 0-1 with a 3.00 ERA and 12 strikeouts this season.

Matz is 1-1 with a 4.15 ERA in two career starts against the Brewers. On the other hand, the Mets have netted 7.0 units and are 7-1 ATS when facing a right-handed starting pitcher. Milwaukee is tough but playing on the road against a hot team might be too much to ask.

After All-Star closer Corey Knebel went down with a hamstring the bullpen needed a new stopper for the end of their games.

Both teams have some injuries taking a toll.

Mets left-hander Steven Matz (0-1, 3.00 ERA) is scheduled to oppose Brewers right-hander Zach Davies (0-1, 5.40 ERA) in a battle of hurlers coming off strong efforts in a no-decision last Saturday. Will injuries take a toll on these teams this season?

The Milwaukee Brewers will look to find some consistency after splitting their last 6 games, but took a step in the right direction with a 3-2 victory in their series finale against St. Louis on Wednesday, giving the Brew Crew the series victory.

The New York Mets last played a home game on April 4 when the actual human beings in the announced crowd of 21,328 filed out happy after a victory over the Philadelphia Phillies but nearly certainly unaware they were watching the beginning of the fastest start in team history.
