Good morning baseball fans. You had the opportunity to watch some baseball last night, as the Mets were able to top the Royals 9-3 in game three of the World Series. Regardless of what happened Friday night, New York announced Steven Matz would be its starter for game four.
The Game 4 start will be the ninth major league start of Matz's career. He had a 2.27 ERA and 3.61 FIP in six regular season starts for the Mets. He's pitched 9.2 innings over two postseason starts, and he has a 3.72 ERA and 2.72 FIP over that span.
It was unlikely Matt Harvey would be asked to pitch on short rest since there his innings limit has been a topic of conversation of late.
