Several Mets said last night’s loss stung more than most. Given that, it stands to reason tonight’s game will take on a greater importance.
John Maine throws for the Mets tonight, and unfortunately, that’s what he’s been doing recently: throwing instead of pitching.
Maine said he’s not attacking the strike zone the way he should be. Maine is 4-0 with a 2.36 ERA in eight career starts vs. Phillies.
