Tuesday night, the Atlanta Braves will give the ball to Julio Teheran as they square off against the New York Mets and Jacob deGrom. It will be Teheran's 19th start and deGrom's 11th start.
Julio Teheran picked up his 2nd straight win to take his record to 8 - 5 with a 2.29 ERA. In the win, Teheran gave up just a run on 4 hits in 7 innings as he walked 3 and struck out 5. Teheran is putting together a solid season and should have a chance to equal his numbers from last season when he went 14 - 8 with a 3.20 ERA in 30 starts.
In 2013, Teheran didn't factor in the decision in either of his 2 starts against the Mets. He just got the win against New York in his last start and that win should have shown him what works against the Mets.
Jacob deGrom took the loss in his last start and that lowered his record to 1 - 5 with a 3.77 ERA. In that loss, deGrom allowed 3 runs on 6 hits in 5 innings of work. He walked 2 and struck out 8. deGrom has struggled against Major League hitting since getting the call from the Minors.
DeGrom just lost his last outing against the Braves and he will have to work on the things he got wrong in the last start if he wants a shot a win in this one.
