RHP Chris Bassitt (4-3, 3.74) vs. LHP Sean Manaea (2-3, 3.77)

The Mets and Padres are playing a rubber game tonight as the Mets attempt to take the series from the Padres. Last night was Padres night – they cruised through the Mets with a 7-0 win. More importantly, the Mets lost Pete Alonso and Starling Marte to injuries in the game. There have been a few constants this season that the Mets need to build on tonight. First of all, each person on the list is important and contributes. Second, winning solves all worries. Let’s go get that win today!

Chris Bassitt gets the start for the Mets tonight. Chris Bassitt had 11 starts and 65.0 innings with a 3.74 ERA, 4.44 FIP, 1.169 WHIP and a 107+ ERA. Bassitt got off to a rougher start in his last outing, allowing four runs, including three earned, in six innings against the Dodgers last weekend. He’s in the middle of a tough streak where he’s allowed 17 runs, 16 won in 22.2 innings and four starts. In his seven starts before that streak, he allowed just 11 runs. The San Diego Padres have the following career numbers against Bassitt:

Former Oakland Athletic Chris Bassitt takes on another longtime Oakland Athletic, Sean Manaea. Sean pitched 10 games and 62 innings with a 3.77 ERA, 3.64 FIP, 1.113 WHIP and a 103+ ERA in his freshman year with the Padres. From late April to late May, Manaea had a 5.35 ERA on 22 earned runs in 37 innings over six starts. He’s coming off a start where he held the Brewers to one run in 6.0 innings, which was his best start since April 18. There are very few Mets on the roster who have seen Manaea in a major league game:

  • Francisco Lindor 4-9, 2 2B, HR, K
  • Eduardo Escobar 3-6, HR, BB, 2K
  • Starling Marte 0-2, K
