Hopefully Steven Matz Learns from First Major League Loss


Mets pitcher Steven Matz suffered his first major league regular season loss last night. Prior to the start, he had been 4-0.

Matz lasted 1.2 innings, which was the shortest start of his career. His previous shortest outing was 5 innings on September 11, 2015 at Atlanta. The last Mets starter to have a shorter outing was Jonathon Niese on July 4, 2014 vs. Texas when he went 0.1 inning before leaving with an injury.

The previous shortest outing that was non-injury related was Collin McHugh on September 25, 2012 vs. Pittsburgh. McHugh went 1.1 innings and allowed seven runs. The last Mets starter to allow seven runs was Matt Harvey on September 8, 2015 at Washington, when he permitted seven runs over 5.1 innings.

Kudos to Giancarlo Stanton, who hit a ball that hasn’t landed yet.
