Marlins Game Notes

RHP Sandy Alcantara (225 ERA+ this season, career 134 ERA+)

Additional Notes: No extra-base hits and only one run batted in for Jacob Stallings over his last 15 games. It’s the worst slump of his career...Alcantara’s start has come up at a convenient time considering that Steven Okert, Anthony Bass and Tanner Scott have each pitched on back-to-back days (and in Scott’s case, six of the last nine days). The Marlins are counting on yet another lengthy outing from their ace. Earning a win today would be Sandy’s 10th of 2022, establishing a new single-season career high in that department.

Mets Probable Starting Pitcher

RHP Taijuan Walker (140 ERA+ this season, career 107 ERA+)

Notes: Starling Marte exited Saturday’s game early due to left groin tightness...Walker’s greatest standout quality this season has been keeping balls in the field of play. He has allowed only four home runs while facing 316 total batters—that’s even better than Sandy...Pete Alonso (.702 OPS in 28 PA), Jeff McNeil (.873 OPS in 28 PA) and Brandon Nimmo (.405 OPS in 26 PA) have the most head-to-head history with Alcantara among active Mets players.
