In the last 10 non-Coors Field games, here’s how many IP starters have given the Mets:
7.0 – Kodai Senga, 5/30
6.2 – Carlos Carrasco, 5/25
5.0 – Senga, 5/24
3.2 – Tylor Megill, 5/23
8.0 – Justin Verlander, 5/21 G2
6.0 – Max Scherzer, 5/21 G1
5.0 – Carrasco, 5/19
6.0 – Megill, 5/18
6.0 – Senga, 5/17
5.0 – Verlander, 5/16
That’s 58.1 IP. In the 10 games before that, starters gave the Mets just 47 IP. Going forward, hopefully the starts of fewer than five innings get wiped out completely and a few more starts of seven innings or more are sprinkled in.
On the flip side, in those same last 10 non-Coors Field games, the offense has scored three runs or fewer five times, including four games where they scored just twice. There have been games where the offense was firing on all cylinders, as three times they scored eight or more runs. Also, in the three games in Colorado, the Mets scored 22 runs.
A big positive for the offense has been the return of the HR ball. After going five straight games without a homer, the Mets have gone deep in 13 straight games, leaving the yard 22 times in that span. Pete Alonso leads the way with seven homers in this stretch, with Francisco Alvarez next with five and Francisco Lindor contributing four. Eight different Mets have gone deep in the past 13 games.
