The New York Mets have struggled at bat of late but they did just enough on Friday to get the win. Wilmer Flores had three hits, Ruben Tejada had two hits, and Lucas Duda and John Mayberry each had hits as the Mets scored two runs on seven hits. Starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard allowed two hits and a runs while striking out six over 6.0 innings to not get a decision as Hansel Robles got the win and Jeurys Famillia earned his 22nd save. For Saturday’s game the Mets start Matt Harvey who has allowed 83 hits and 33 earned runs while striking out 96 over 99.1 innings for a 7-5 record and a 2.99 ERA.
Los Angeles is 41-19 as a home favorite, 38-18 in their last 56 home games, and 7-2 in Greinke’s last nine starts against a team with a winning record. New York is 4-9 in their last 13 games against a right-handed starter, 8-21 in their last 29 road games, and 5-2 in Harvey’s last seven starts in game two of a series. New York is 5-13 in the last 18 meetings with Los Angeles.
The Dodgers are just tough at home and I don’t see them losing there back to back to the Mets.
