Sunday Night Baseball: Mets at Nationals
By Steve Merril
By Covers.com

Two teams that are outside of the playoff race meet on Sunday Night Baseball when the Nationals host the Mets.

NIESE HAS BEEN NICE FOR THE METS

Jon Niese is 6-6 with a 3.69 ERA for New York this season. Since coming off the disabled list, he is 3-0 with a 1.93 ERA in four starts. The southpaw has found his strikeout groove; he has fanned five or more batters in six straight starts, including a pair of nine strikeout games against the Braves and Padres. He has not lost a road start in his last four outings. Niese has not seen the Nationals since August 18 of last year when he beat them after giving up only five hits in 7 1/3 innings of work. His other start against Washington in 2012 also came on the road; that was a no-decision despite giving up just one run and three hits in seven innings.

UH OH OHLENDORF

Ross Ohlendorf is 3-0 with a 2.49 ERA and 1.08 WHIP for the Nationals. Ohlendorf has been on the disabled list already this season, and his fastball velocity dropped 10 mph in his last outing on Tuesday. The righty is making his fifth start of the season for Washington. As a starter, he has given up one earned run in three of those games. Ohlendorf faced the Mets back on July 26 and gave up one run and six hits in seven innings, striking out eight while walking only two. Ohlendorf also saw New York during a brief relief appearance on June 28 and he gave up 1 run and three hits in just two innings.

INJURY REPORT

The Nationals have a short injury list with only three players out. Taylor Jordan is dealing with a lower back strain, but he was expected to be shut down soon anyway due to an innings limit. Ross Detwiler has a lower back strain as well and he has no timetable for a return. Christian Garcia is out with a right forearm injury.

The Mets' injury list is longer featuring several important players. Matt Harvey is done for the season with a partially torn UCL, while David Wright is dealing with a hamstring strain. Johan Santana has been out for the whole season with a shoulder injury. Bobby Parnell, Jenrry Mejia, Jeremy Hefner, and Lucas Duda are also dealing with various ailments.

TRENDS

Mets are 2-6 in Niese’s last 8 Sunday starts
Mets are 5-0 Over in their last 5 Sunday games

Nationals are 4-0 in Ohlendorf’s last 4 starts
Nationals are 7-3 Over in their last 10 Sunday games

HITTERS TO WATCH

Ian Desmond 2-for-14 vs. Niese
Jayson Werth 4-for-17 vs. Niese

Daniel Murphy 4-for-7 vs. Ohlendorf
Juan Lagares 2-for-5 vs. Ohlendorf

Kansas City Royals at Toronto Blue Jays

Toronto Blue Jays will be gunning for a series sweep when they complete this three games set against Kansas City at the Rogers Center. Jays hope to get the job done handing the ball to J.A. Happ who brings a 3-4 record, 5.46 ERA to the mound. Happ is off back-2-back losses giving up 9 runs over 10 innings of work and is 1-2 over 5 starts since returning from DL (1-4 TSR). Royals counter with James Shields sporting a 9-8 record, 3.14 ERA. The right-hander off a sharp 7 1/3 innings of 1 run-ball has a 5-1 streak the past seven on the mound with Royals 5-2 over the span. Two hurlers going in opposite direction stick with Royals knowing they're 10-5 on the road with Shields including 4-1 after loss and that Jays are on an 1-4 slide in day games w/Happ, 0-5 skid with the southpaw after he's tossed a non quality start (<6 In =>4 runs).
