New York Mets
The Mets slide into this evening’s matchup sporting a 31-39 record that ranks them 4th in the NL East. Although they had a great start to the year, it’s pretty obvious that New York has since faltered. Testament to this is 3-5 record they’ve posted in their last 8 matchups. That losing streak now pegs the Mets a whopping 10 ½ games behind the division leading Atlanta Braves. Clearly, the Mets need a vast turnaround if they are to have a shot at the postseason. Coming off a 10-8 loss to the Rockies, it’s easy to see why the online baseball betting odds are pegging New York as the underdog this evening. But to prove them wrong, New York will be sending Seth Lugo to the mound this evening. Lugo is 2-2 on the year and brings a 2.49 ERA and 0.95 WHIP to the mound this evening.
Players to Watch: Brandon Nimmo (12 HR, 23 RBI, .287 BA), Asdrubal Cabrera (12 HR, 39 RBI, .275 BA), and Michael Conforto (9 HR, 22 RBI, .226 BA).
The Rockies season has been one tumble after another. Their current 35-38 record reflects that perfectly. But notwithstanding their losing record, Colorado is only 5 games behind the division-leading Arizona Diamondbacks. Clearly a lengthy win streak would land Colorado near the top of the division. Unfortunately for the Rockies, we haven’t seen anything out of them to suggest that they will get the job done. Chad Bettis will get the start on behalf of Colorado this evening. He will be looking to improve on his 5-1 record as well as his 4.65 ERA and 1.29 WHIP.
Players to Watch: Nolan Arenado (14 HR, 45 RBI, .311 BA), Charlie Blackmon (13 HR, 33 RBI, .278 BA), and Trevor Story (16 HR, 56 RBI, .271 BA).
