My favorite 2020 Met will make his final Mets appearance tonight. It was short and sweet Rick. Hopefully Uncle Steve writes you a nice check and you can stick around.
His last start was the 350th start of Rick Porcello’s major-league career…Only three pitchers who debuted in the last 50 seasons (i.e., since 1971) were younger than Porcello is today (age 31 years, 268 days) when they made their 350th career start: Felix Hernandez (30 years, 129 days), CC Sabathia (31 years, 34 days) and Greg Maddux (31 years, 79 days).
Cy Young Award winner Rick Porcello and three-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer will face each other for the third time this season…The Mets earned a 3-1 win on August 5 in Washington with Porcello earning his first victory of the season…Scherzer left the game after 1.0 inning due to injury…The Mets fell to the Nationals on August 11 at Citi Field…Scherzer out-dueled Porcello, allowing a run on six hits with two walks and seven strikeouts in 6.0 innings of work…Porcello fell to 1-2, allowing both runs on eight hits with five strikeouts in 6.0 innings of work.
