Preview: Mets at Nationals April 26, 2011

New York Mets (9-13) at Washington Nationals (10-11)  7:05pm

Chris Young (1-0 1.46) vs. Jordan Zimmermann (1-3 3.70)


What to watch: The Nationals took a series from the Mets earlier this month at Citi Field. But the Mets are going for their fifth win in a row tonight. Young is back from the disabled list tonight after suffering from minor biceps tendinitis. He’s been pitching really well and looks to continue that against the Nats. He held the Nats to 1 run on 1 hit over 7 innings on April 10.

Zimmermann pitched poorly in his last start in St. Louis going 6 innings and allowing 5 runs on 8 hits and 2 walks. But he did beat the Mets on April 8 going 5.1 innings and allowing 2 runs.

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.
