The New York Mets need a win after losing five of their last six games. The Mets have scored 19 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five of their last eight games. The Mets have lost four straight games when scoring three or less runs. Lucas Duda leads New York with 38 hits and 13 RBI while Daniel Murphy and Michael Cuddyer have combined for 35 RBI. The New York Mets have split their last eight games on their home field. Noah Syndergaard takes the hill, and he’s 0-1 with a 5.06 ERA and six strikeouts this season. This will be Syndergaard’s first career game against the Brewers.
The Brewers are 5-1 in their last 6 during game 3 of a series and 2-5 in Peraltas last 7 starts. The Mets are 1-4 in their last 5 during game 3 of a series and 15-4 in their last 19 home games. The Brewers are 13-3 in the last 16 meetings in New York and 5-2 in the last 7 meetings overall.
The Mets have played their best ball of the season at home, and I don't trust the Brewers as far as I can throw them. Peralta has been awful this season. Give me the home team.
