Preview: Nationals at Mets May 19, 2011

Washington Nationals (20-22) at New York Mets (20-22) 1:10pm

Livan Hernandez (3-5 3.92) vs. Dillon Gee (2-0 4.44)

TV: SNY   Radio: WFAN

What to watch: The Mets are going for the sweep of the short series behind Gee this afternoon if the weather holds out. The Mets have won both games Gee started since he came out of the bullpen to join the rotation. He didn’t pitch particularly well in Houston but got enough run support to avoid a loss. He went 5 innings and gave up 4 runs.

Hernandez had taken a loss in three straight starts coming into today’s game. Although he was a hard luck loser in his last start in Florida going 7 innings and allowing only 1 run. The Nats are 3-6 in games he started this year.

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.
