The New York Mets couldn’t back up Thursday’s win as they lost in Arizona on Friday. Michael Cuddyer hit a home run and Curtis Granderson and Ruben Tejada each had hits as the Mets scored two runs on six hits. Starting pitcher Jon Niese allowed six hits and three runs while striking out eight over 6.0 innings to take the loss and fall to 3-6 for the season. For Saturday’s game the Mets start Bartolo Colon who has allowed 75 hits and 36 earned runs while striking out 54 over 68.2 innings for an 8-3 record and a 4.72 ERA.
Arizona is 7-2 against the NL East, Arizona is 1-6 as a favorite, and 0-5 in Anderson’s last five starts as a favorite. New York is 2-10 in their last 12 road games, 6-3 against the NL West, and 9-3 in Colon’s last 12 starts. New York is 6-1 in their last seven games in Arizona.
While Colon’s numbers aren’t always pretty he is a veteran with good stuff who knows how to win games and I see that being good enough here.
