Meanwhile, the Mets come back from a four run deficit to scratch out a win in extras. Maybe they just want it more??Really uninspired effort tonight in a game you had to have. Felt good in the 10th with acuna and Swanson….. sigh
Why Stephens in the 10th?
2 runs in 10 innings against the Nats, deserve to lose
Well, boys...the big series is upon us. Both the Braves and Mets have their studs lined up for what is essentially postseason play. All three games are nationally televised in prime time, and we know that Truist will be rocking! Grab your popcorn 🍿 and preferred beverage 🍺and get ready!
In Scherzer's last start against the Braves on 8/17, he gave up 4 ER in 6.1 innings but still got the win. You have to take advantage of that kind of scoring against one of the best in the game.Will be interesting this evening... Kyle Wright leads the NL in getting run support with 6.31 runs/start. Meanwhile Max Scherzer boasts a stingy 2.24 ERA vs the Braves this season. Something's gotta give.
Sounds good on paper but the guy's a strike machine... early in the count, at least. If the ump's putting Braves hitters in an 0-2 hole repeatedly, the patience thing might have to go out the window after a couple of innings.For tonight's game, I'd like to see a healthy balance of singles and doubles with the occasional long ball......and patience at the plate. Have to get his pitch count up early.
