Starter Chase Anderson was charged with all four runs on eight hits and a pair of BB including two homers over 4.1 innings with four relievers putting up zeros. The Snakes were held to six hits and two bases on balls with Wellington Castillo and Paul Goldschmidt driving in Yasmany Tomas and AJ Pollock.

The New York Mets are trying to heat up before the All Star break and make a run at Washington for first in the National League East race. With Friday’s victory the Mets have won six of eight to pick up a game in the standings. The offense generated ten hits and walked four times with Lucas Duda launching a three run bomb while Michael Cuddyer going 2-4 with a solo jack. That was more then enough for starter Noah Syndergaard who allowed a single run on four hits while striking out 13 through eight frames to even his record at 4-4. The Mets turn to Matt Harvey for the start in game number two versus the Diamondbacks Saturday. Harvey comes off of a 4-3 loss at the Dodgers with three runs plated on seven hits and five BB in five innings.
The over is 8-2 in Arizona’s last 10 Saturday games and is 8-3 in their last 11 games as an underdog while going 7-3-1 in their last 11 overall. The under is 17-5 in New York’s last 22 overall and is 15-5 in their last 20 on grass while the over is 6-2 in the Mets last 8 Saturday games. Matt Harvey is not as dominant in 2015 as he has been so you have to decide if the juice is worth the risk…
