After another tough loss, this time to the lowly Kansas City Royals, the New York Mets look to turn it around tonight at Kauffman Stadium.
The defending N.L. Cy Young Jacob deGrom will take the mound for the Orange & Blue and while he wasn’t exactly great his last time out, the damage was caused by an error which lead to three unearned runs.
Overall, Jacob deGrom is 7-7 with an ERA of 2.68, a 1.07 WHIP, while striking out 189 batters in 148 innings pitched. However, since the start of June, deGrom has been pitching to a 1.20 ERA and has collected three wins in that span.
Jakob Junis is expected to take the mound for the Royals tonight. The right hander has an 8-10 win/loss record and has been pitching to a 4.80 ERA and a 1.39 WHIP while striking out 136 batters in 144.1 innings.
In his last seven starts, Junis owns a 4-2 record with a 3.20 ERA while striking out 44 in 45.0 innings pitched.
