Mets’ Recent Success and Diaz’s Return

Edwin Diaz’s Comeback

New York Mets manager Carlos Mendoza has expressed confidence in reliever Edwin Diaz, who made a significant impact in Friday’s game. Diaz, who returned to action lately, earned his first save since May 6 by preserving the Mets’ 2- 1 palm over the Padres. Diaz’s performance, highlighted by a 100 mph fastball and a critical strikeout with a 91- mph slider, reminded the Mets of the elite closer they had missed.

Diaz was a crucial part of the Mets’ successful 2022 season, where they finished 101- 61, and Diaz recorded a1.31 ERA with 32 saves. However, he missed the entire last season due to a torn right patellar tendon suffered during the World Baseball Classic. His absence was felt as the Mets struggled, finishing 77- 85 with their relievers posting a4.45 ERA and blowing 18 save opportunities.

After starting this season strong, Diaz faced challenges, including a right shoulder impingement, but has returned to form following rehab appearances. Mendoza noted,” He is back. And we are going to need him. He is going to continue to work through some things, but as long as he is feeling healthy with confidence, we’ll be in a good spot.”

Recent Winning Band

The Mets have won seven of their last nine games, perfecting their record to 31- 37 and moving within three games of the third wild- card spot in the National League. This recent success has been critical as they aim to climb the standings.

Saturday’s Pitching Matchup

Jose Quintana for the Mets

Left- hander Jose Quintana( 1- 5,5.29 ERA) will start for the Mets. Quintana entered a no- decision in his last outing, allowing three runs on six hits over32/3 innings against the Philadelphia Phillies in London. He has a 2- 0 record with a5.70 ERA in seven career games( five starts) against the Padres.

Adam Mazur for the Padres

Right- hander Adam Mazur( 0- 1,9.00 ERA) will take the mound for the Padres. Mazur, in his alternate career start, struggled in his former appearance, allowing eight runs on as many hits over three innings in a loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks. This will be his first time facing the Mets.

Padres’ Recent Performance and Challenges

Offensive Struggles

The Padres, who have shown a knack for comeback victories lately, fell suddenly on Friday. San Diego was 0- for- 5 with runners in scoring position and has scored its last seven runs via home runs, indicating a reliance on power hitting. Padres manager Mike Shildt conceded the difference in Friday’s game, stating,” Difference was we were 0- for- 5 with runners in scoring positions( and) they were 1- for- 5. Took good at- bats, hit some balls at people. At the end of the day, it just was not enough.”

Crucial Players

Jackson Merrill’s home run reckoned for the only run by the Padres on Friday. Merrill, along with Kyle Higashioka, had previously led the team to walk- off victories before in the week.

Conclusion

The New York Mets will look to continue their ascent with another win over the San Diego Padres on Saturday. With Jose Quintana on the mound and Edwin Diaz back in the bullpen, the Mets are in a strong position to extend their winning streak. Meanwhile, the Padres will aim to bounce back and improve their performance with runners in scoring position, relying on Adam Mazur to deliver a solid start. The strategies employed by both teams and the benefactions of crucial players will be critical in determining the outgrowth of this important matchup.
