Thursday Night Baseball: New York Mets Vs. Los Angeles Dodgers

Postseason Stats

Zach Greinke: Greinke is 1-0 on the postseason with a 2.57 ERA and 8 strikeouts.

Each pitcher is getting their second game of the series on Thursday night, but who has the advantage…

DeGrom has only one career postseason starts, but man was he untouchable. He DeGrom posted one of the greatest stat lines ever for a pitcher making his postseason debut and the Mets faithful are surely happy he is starting the series finale. In his regular season career against the Dodgers, DeGrom is 0-2 with an ERA of 3.66.

Greinke is fairly seasoned in terms of postseason experience, with Thursday being his 9th career start. Greinke has managed well during baseball’s second season, with an ERA of 3.48 and the team posting a 5-3 record. Greinke has yet to pitch in the final game of a series though. Greinke does have the advantage in terms of regular season stats with his 1.66 ERA and sub 0.90 WHIP.   

Hitting

Since both teams are expecting some superb pitching, who can be expected to grab that clutch hit that could sway the momentum in their teams favour? The best option for each team is…

Mets: Curtis Granderson

Entering the league with the Detroit Tigers in 2004, Granderson has 145 at-bats of playoff experience and has already made some big hits for the Mets. Granderson’s postseason OPS of .822 is slightly higher than his career regular season average.

Dodgers: Adrian Gonzalez

Gonzalez, like Granderson, entered the Major Leagues in 2004 – except Gonzalez’s original team was the San Diego Padres. Gonzalez has less playoff experience than Granderson, logging a total of 84 at bats. He has still managed h home runs and like his counterpart his .OPS – which is .871 – is slightly higher than his career average during the regular season.

Advantage

 

In one of the toughest games to pick a clear winner in, the edge has to go towards Zach Greinke and the Dodgers in what is expected to be a very low scoring affair.
