Saturday evening, Jonathon Niese and the New York Mets will face Wily Peralta and the Milwaukee Brewers. It will be the 19th start for Niese and the 21st for Peralta.
Jonathon Niese saw his record even out at 5 - 5 with a 3.13 ERA after he took the loss his last time out. In that start, Niese gave up 4 runs and 11 hits (including a homer) in 6 innings. He walked 2 batters and struck out 6. It was Niese's first start after coming off the disabled list with a shoulder strain and he might not have been completely ready. He still has a chance to match or better his record from 2013 when he went 8 - 8 with a 3.71 ERA in 24 starts.
Last season, Niese didn't get the decision in his only start against the Brewers after allowing 2 runs on 6 hits in 6 innings. This season, he has a no-decision against Milwaukee after allowing a run (on a solo homer) and 6 hits in 7.2 innings.
Wily Peralta boosted his record to 11 - 6 with a 3.58 ERA after getting the victory his last time out. In the win, Peralta gave up just a run (on a solo home run) and 3 hits in 7 innings. He walked 2 and struck out 5. Peralta has been impressive for the Brewers this season and is 7 - 1 in his last 9 starts. In 2013, Peralta finished the year with an 11 - 15 record and an ERA of 4.37 in 32 starts.
Last season, Peralta didn't face the Mets but he has a start against them this season. In that outing, Peralta got the win after holding New York to a run and 4 hits in 6.1 innings.
