All the positive momentum from winning the 2-1 game on Tuesday, and scoring 5 runs in the 8th to take a 6-2 lead last night made me excited and maybe thinking this team is fun to watchand a team to get behind. But then they collapse and lose on a walk-off in the 9th, 7-6.
Now the Mets need to face a top pitcher young pitcher, 25-year old, Y Gallardo tonight. He's won 6 starts in a row, and hasn't allowed more than 2 runs in any of those games. He's 8-2 with a 3.72 ERA and 1.34 WHIP, which is right in line with his career averages (44-26, 3.68 ERA, 1.32 WHIP). His K/9 rate is at a career low this year (7.5), and his swing and miss % is just average as well (8%). He's a 4 pitch pitcher (fastball, curve, slider, and change-up), with his fastball (92 mph) and his slider (86 mph) his two best pitches, but also has an above average curve (80 mph).
