The New York Mets look to stay hot after winning five of their last six games. The Mets have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The Mets have won five straight games when scoring more than three runs. Juan Lagares leads New York with 80 hits and 25 RBI while Wilmer Flores and Lucas Duda have combined for 76 RBI. The New York Mets have won five of their last eight home games. Jonathon Niese takes the hill, and he’s 4-8 with a 3.58 ERA and 67 strikeouts this season. Niese is 2-3 with a 6.29 ERA and 29 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.
The Diamondbacks are 5-2 in their last 7 during game 3 of a series and 4-1 in De La Rosas last 5 starts following a team loss in their previous game. The Mets are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 3 of a series and 2-8 in Nieses last 10 starts. The Diamondbacks are 4-9 in the last 13 meetings.
The Diamondbacks have been playing too well to get swept heading into the All Star break. Also, the Mets haven't had much success with Niese on the hill, losing eight of his last 10 starts. I'm taking the DBacks and the plus money.
