The New York Mets look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Mets have scored nine runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The Mets have won four straight games when scoring more than three runs. Juan Lagares leads New York with 57 hits and 15 RBI while Daniel Murphy and Lucas Duda have combined for 54 RBI. The New York Mets have won four of their last six home games. Noah Syndergaard takes the hill, and he’s 2-3 with a 3.77 ERA and 32 strikeouts this season. This will be Syndergaard’s first career game against the Giants.
The Giants are 5-1 in their last 6 during game 1 of a series and 4-1 in Hestons last 5 starts. The Mets are 1-4 in their last 5 games vs. a right-handed starter and 23-8 in their last 31 home games. The Giants are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in New York and 7-1 in the last 8 meetings overall.
We have two pitchers who have given up runs left and right this season, especially Heston, who has countless games of allowing four or more earned runs. Give me the over in this spot.
