Noah Syndergaard takes the hill, and he’s 8-6 with a 3.19 ERA and 126 strikeouts this season. This is Syndergaard’s first career game against the Red Sox.
The Red Sox are 66-30 in their last 96 vs. National League East and 2-7 in Mileys last 9 starts. The Mets are 10-4 in their last 14 during game 3 of a series and 6-0 in Syndergaards last 6 home starts. The Red Sox are 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.
Syndergaard has been really good at home and the Mets have won his last six home starts. I'll take my chances with the Mets to prevent the sweep.
