Game 25: Mets @ Nationals

The Mets have faced Livan Hernandez 37 times in his career, but they are hoping to solve him better than they did last year, where he had a sub 2.00 ERA in 5 starts against them. Here is the line-up that will face the 36-year old veteran right-hander:

Beltran (He may need a day off to rest his knees soon)

Capuano is making his 4th start, and he's 2-1 with a 5.95 ERA and 1.53 WHIP. While those numbers are ugly, he posted a quality start last time out, going 7 innings versus the Astros, allowing only 6 hits, 2 walks and 1 run, while striking out 4. His WHIP is very high due to the .344 BAPIP (laregly from his first two starts).

My Prediction: The Mets will win the series finale 7-4, and go into Philadelphia 1 game under .500 and winners of 7 in a row.

  1. Let's go Mets! I don't care who they are playing, they are winning and that's all that matters. Sure they will be tested the next month with 2 series vs. Philly, and they will see LA, SF, CHI, and NYY. That's fine. Momentum is a funny thing and they have some right now.

    I was most impressed with the mental toughness to overcome a questionable call on Reyes (I am being kind obviously). They found a way to battle through adversity--a good sign for any team at any level.

    SO Mets fans enjoy the winning streak...and Livan gets beat tonight and the Mets finally figure him out to extend the winning streak.
