The New York Mets hosted the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday at Clover Park with Marcus Stroman on the hill. Stroman only gave up a hit and a walk while striking out four in three innings pitched in a 4-1 victory.
The Long Island native now owns a 2.70 ERA this Spring and is poised to inherit the third spot in the rotation when the season hits. Stroman was 4-2 with a 3.77 ERA in 11 games pitched during the 2019 campaign.
Left handed reliever Daniel Zamora came on to pitch a scoreless inning, still having yet to give up a run this spring. While Zamora’s currently a long shot to make the bullpen, he’ll prove to be a quality arm as far as depth is concerned.
Right hander Erasmo Ramirez and left hander Chasen Shreve each put in a scoreless inning’s work, as well.
Jeff McNeil picked up another multi-hit game as the super utility player went 2-3. Both hits from McNeil we’re doubles. Michael Conforto also picked up his first double of the spring while newly signed infielder Eduardo Nunez hit his first triple.
