The New York Mets need a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Mets have scored five runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five straight games. The Mets have lost six of their last eight 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 60 RBI. The New York Mets have won four straight home games. Matt Harvey takes the hill, and he’s 7-5 with a 3.18 ERA and 93 strikeouts this season. Harvey is 1-0 with a 3.21 ERA and 14 strikeouts in his career against the Reds.
The Reds are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series and 1-6 in their last 7 Saturday games. The Mets are 39-16 in their last 55 games as a favorite and 5-2 in Harveys last 7 home starts. The Reds are 7-2 in the last 9 meetings in New York.
Both teams have had an issue as of late putting runs on the board, especially the Mets. With Harvey on the hill, I expect another low-scoring game. Give me the under.
