The Diamondbacks’ recent success can be attributed in large part to their pitching staff. In their last six games, they’ve allowed a total of 17 runs, with five of those coming in their lone defeat. The Diamondbacks have a 21st-worst team ERA, 19th-worst WHIP, and 21st-worst opponent batting average this season.
The Diamondbacks will send Ryne Nelson to the mound for today’s game. On the season, he has a 7-7 record with a 5.30 ERA. This year, he’s been at his best away from home, where he has a 3.18 ERA and a 5-2 record. Nelson got off to another one of his brilliant road starts the last time around. In a victory over the Cubs, he lasted 5.2 innings while allowing just one run.
Meanwhile, the Diamondbacks’ hitting has been consistently good this season. They rank 15th in slugging percentage, 15th in on-base percentage, and 14th in batting average. Last night’s hero, Tommy Pham, has continued his hot hitting this morning. In the last week, he has a.355 average and a.375 on-base percentage.
Pham has driven in eight runs over the past week thanks to his four doubles and three home runs. In the past seven days, he has gone 7 for 7 with a stolen base and seven runs batted in. Alek Thomas is also participating as a driver in a number of runs. In the past seven days, he hit a home run and drove in six runs. In those games, Thomas had a.294 batting average,.316 on-base percentage, 2 steals, and 2 runs scored.
Tonight, Jose Butto will take the mound for the Mets. He has a 3.86 earned run average and is 0-2. In his previous start against the Nationals, he lasted 6.1 innings while allowing six hits and two runs (both earned). It was his first start since April and his longest of the season.
Jose Butto’s front line stats are good, but he’s been taking a lot of punishment recently. Walking has been another problem for him for the majority of this year. Although he played well in his previous game, there is no evidence to suggest he will do so again tonight.
