Matz Has Been Lights Out On The Road

The New York Mets will send lefty Steven Matz to the mound when they close out their series with the Washington Nationals Wednesday. Matz has been flawless throughout his young career when travelling, as he is 5-0 with a 2.18 ERA in seven career starts on the road – including 3-0 with a 1.86 ERA this season.

Shark Bites
  • The Nationals are hitting .275 with a .361 OBP against lefties this season.
  • The Mets are 1-5 SU in their past six games on the road.
  • The OVER is 4-1 in the past five meetings between the Nationals and Mets.

Matz is also perfect this season when pitching in day games – though the sample size is relatively small. Matz has allowed just two hits and no runs while pitching 14.2 innings this season when taking the bump in the daytime.

The Nats will counter with Tanner Roark who has been hot and cold this season. In Roark’s three wins this season he has posted a ridiculous 0.44 ERA, but he has an 8.40 ERA in his three losses.
