Two teams in the thick of the playoff race in the National League meet today as the Milwaukee Brewers host the New York Mets in the second game of a three game series. The Mets come into this series having won 2 of 3 games. The Mets came into this series with Milwaukee holding a slim one-game lead and tied in the loss column. Meanwhile, the Brewers hit a rough patch after the all-star break, but they have been playing good baseball as of late.
Coming into this series, the Milwaukee Brewers had won 7 out of their last 10 games, including taking two out of three from the Yankees. The Brewers have no chance of catching the first-place Cardinals in the NL Central, as they are 8 games back. But they are only 2 games behind the Phillies for the third and final wildcard spot in the National League.
On the other side, the Mets have been in a dogfight with the Atlanta Braves for the past few weeks. It is important to hold on to the division because it would likely give them the two seed and a first-round playoff bye. Finishing second will drop them into a wildcard spot. They came into this series having swept a four-game series from Pittsburgh.
Carlos Carrasco gets the start for the Mets today. Carrasco is 15-6 on the season with an ERA of 3.70 in 26 starts. He has 143 strikeouts and 43 walks in 141 innings. In his last outing he beat the Pirates, allowing 1 run on 4 hits in 6 innings with 11 strikeouts and 2 walks. In his career against the Brewers, Carrasco is 2-1 with an ERA of 3.12 and 34 strikeouts in 4 appearances.
For the Milwaukee Brewers, Aaron Ashby will be making his 18th start and 24th appearance of the season today. He is currently holding a 2-10 record with a 4.58 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP over 96.1 innings while striking out 116. The last time we saw Ashby start was over a month ago, when he faced the Cubs and surrendered 6 runs on 8 hits across 5 frames while striking out 8.
