New York Mets
The Mets slide into this evening’s contest with a 30-38 record that ranks them 4th in the NL East. Currently a whopping 10 ½ games behind the division leading Atlanta Braves, it’s looking like the Mets will be missing out on this year’s postseason. Without a doubt, the Mets will be vying to topple Colorado on the road this evening. All in all, this evening’s pairing marks the 4th time this season the Mets have faced the Rockies. With an 0-3 record versus them this evening, it’s very shocking to see New York pegged as the favorite this evening. Nonetheless, the Mets are coming off back-to-back wins over the Arizona Diamondbacks. But before that, new York had racked up a disappointing 4-game losing streak.
To help keep their current winning streak alive, the Mets will be sending Jacob deGrom to the mound this evening. deGrom is 4-2 on the season and brings a 1.55 ERA and 1.01 WHIP to the mound this evening.
Players to Watch: Brandon Nimmo (10 HR, 18 RBI, .274 BA), Asdrubal Cabrera (12 HR, 37 RBI, .270 BA), and Michael Conforto (9 HR, 21 RBI, .215 BA)
The Rockies tumble into this Monday night pairing flashing a 34-37 record that ranks them 4th in the NL West. At the present moment, Colorado is 6-games behind the division leading Arizona Diamondbacks. Although they’re still in the divisional chase, Colorado will need better results down the road if they are to qualify for this year’s season. Entering tonight’s matchup riding a 2-game losing streak, it seems the Rockies are struggling at the moment. Tyler Anderson will get the start this evening. Anderson is 4-1 on the year with a 4.48 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP.
Players to Watch: Nolan Arenado (13 HR, 42 RBI, .310 BA), Charlie Blackmon (13 HR, 33 RBI, .278 BA), and Trevor Story (15 HR, 54 RBI, .270 BA).
