The New York Mets need a win after losing seven of their last eight games. The Mets have scored five runs in their last three games and three or less runs in eight of their last 10 games. The Mets have lost six of their last seven games when scoring three or less runs. Juan Lagares leads New York with 71 hits and 20 RBI while Lucas Duda and Michael Cuddyer have combined for 59 RBI. The New York Mets have won five of their last six home games. Noah Syndergaard takes the hill, and he’s 2-4 with a 4.03 ERA and 48 strikeouts this season. This will be Syndergaard’s first career game against the Reds.
The Reds are 6-1 in their last 7 vs. National League East and 5-2 in Cuetos last 7 starts. The Mets are 28-11 in their last 39 home games and 22-46 in their last 68 games as an underdog. The Reds are 7-2 in the last 9 meetings in New York and 2-6 in the last 8 meetings overall.
The Mets are tough to beat at home, and the Reds are coming off a long game Thursday and have to travel. I like New York at home.
