How do the New York Mets stack up against the National League’s best teams? In the midst of playing Washington and the L.A. Dodgers, not so hot with present 1-5 record the last six days.
Chances are the losing will continue with Los Angeles as hot as the temperatures out west, being on an 11-1 tear.
Mostly due to injury, Tyler Pill (0-2, 3.75 ERA) has made his way to the majors at 27 for New York. The right-hander has made four appearances since being called up and has started twice. In his 12 innings of work he has allowed 15 hits and four walks, while striking out eight. With L.A. having several power bats from the left side of the plate, Pill has been ripped for .389 batting average and .450 OBP vs. lefties.
Los Angeles is not getting their money’s worth out of Rich Hill (5-5, 5.14). The lefty has made eight starts and has yet to register an out in the six inning this season. Hill’s high WHIP is a function of not throwing enough strikes with 23 walks in 35 innings.
