Zack Wheeler He was hoping to start his season on Friday night with a good start to the season and help the Mets defeat the Atlanta Braves by a score of 6-2.
Wheeler, 28, threw six innings while allowing two runs on six hits, three runs and eight outs. His performance was a good rebound after a disappointing seven-march performance against the Washington Nationals on April 7th.
The first run seemed to be the real turning point for Wheeler, who retreated to limit the damage he suffered at the beginning. Zack would charge the bases with one withdrawal in the inning before retiring Nick Markakis on a sacrifice flying and landing Dansby Swanson on strikes to end the threat.
Zack reflected on what could have been the difference between his first couple mechanics starting this season compared to last year.
"In fact, I was watching the video yesterday from last year, I was looking at myself and I was much slower, so we timed and my past times were a lot faster.Yahoo Sports)
Wheeler earned his first victory in 2019 on Friday night, out of a total of 111 lands played tonight, including 69 scored for catch. Zack gave a glimpse of the pitcher who dominated Major League Baseball in the second half of the 2018 season.
The right-handed Mets ended his strong match, reaching 98 km / h in his last round of throws in the sixth inning and finished 101 km / h at night. Let's hope this start is just the beginning of good things to come for Wheeler in 2019.
