Tonight’s game -which will be played at Citi Field- is sure to be a pitching match for the ages with both teams sending out their aces. The Mets pitcher, 24-year-old Noah Syndergaard, finished the season with a 14-9 record, and a 2.60 ERA. The Giants ace, Madison Bumgarner, is one of the best postseason pitchers in history. For the 2016 season, Bumgarner finished with a 15-9 record with a 2.74 ERA.
Bumgarner has dominated the Mets in the past with a 1.80 ERA across six starts (5-0) and .189 batting average against. Bumgarner’s Giants come into the game after an 87-75 regular-season finish, making the playoffs despite playing 30-42 baseball over the second half of the season. The Mets also finished 87-75, however they finished the MLB season’s second half with an MLB best 27-12 record. Despite the Mets’ hot streak, injuries have taken their toll, with Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom and Steven Matz all lost for the season with arm injuries.
