The Mets send out Zack Wheeler for the opener. Wheeler hasn’t been sharp in last two starts allowing 8 runs in 8 2/3 innings but did look good in his 3 previous pitching 19 2/3 and getting charged with only 3 runs. He’s been up and down on the road with a 2-4 won/lost record and 4.70 ERA. However, he shut the Marlins down over 6 frames giving up 2 hits and zero runs this season on the road and has owned them in his career with 3 runs allowed 21 innings covering 3 starts. He’ll have to be sharp tonight with New York’s offense putting up 3 or fewer runs in 7 of their last 8. The Marlins hope that Andrew Heaney will be able to help out their struggling starting pitchers who have been getting clobbered as of late with a 7.48 over their last 8 games. It looks like a good spot for a pitcher making his first MLB start getting to face offensively challenged Mets and having the home crowd behind him. He did look good in the minors with a 2.47 ERA and obviously has some good stuff striking out 79 in 76 2/3 innings.
Take Under 7 -105.
