MetsJunkies Tuesday Night Pitching Matchup vs Dodgers

Steven Matz will take the hill for the Mets in game 2 vs the Dodgers. The Long Island, New York native is debatably the most consistent pitcher in the current rotation, besides his one terrible outing in Philadelphiaon the 16th of April, he’s been solid. In his last 5 starts, Matz is 2-2 with a 2.86 ERA.

Steven Matz owns a 3.03 ERA over his last 17 starts since August 21, 2018. That’s the 12th-best ERA in the NL in that span (min. 80.0 IP).

His .224 opponent average also ranks 10th in the NL during that stretch.

The Dodgers will have Rich Hill out on the mound, who will be making his sixth start of the season. The veteran lefty is 1-1, with a 2.67 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 31 strikeouts over 27 innings. The Boston born southpaw made his last start against the Rays and pitched 6 innings of 1 run baseball in Tampa Bay.
