The New York Mets look to extend their lead in the East with a win against the Miami Marlins.
The Miami Marlins have been playing good baseball which is bad news for teams remaining on their schedule. The Marlins had won seven of ten before a 4-3 defeat at Citi Field on Monday. Starter Justin Nicolino allowed three runs over six frames with Kyle Burraclough allowing a 7th inning run to get the loss. The offense produced six hits with Derek Dietrich, JT Realmuto and Miguel Rojas driving in runs.The Marlins turn to Tom Koehler for Tuesday night’s start against the Mets at Citi Field. Koehler has accumulated a 9-13 record with an ERA hovering around four over 27 starts.

The New York Mets are doing their best to distance themselves from Washington in the National League East. The Mets notched win number eight in a row behind starter Logan Verrett who gave up a run through five frames with Sean Gilmartin allowing two before three relievers slammed the door shut. The New Yorkers logged seven hits and walked four times with Yoenis Cespedes going solo while Travis d’Arnaud went deep and drove in two. New York is slated to send Jacob deGrom to the mound looking to pitch his team closer to the East crown. DeGrom has been outstanding overall with a 13-7 record and a 2.40 ERA.
The over is 6-2-3 in Miami’s last 11 road games while Miami are 7-3 in their last 10 road games and are 2-7 in Koehler’s last 9 starts. The Mets are 7-1 in the last 8 Tuesday games while the over is 21-6 in their last 27 on grass and 6-2 in their last 8 home games. Miami are 5-13 in the last 18 meetings in New York while the over is 18-7-1 in the last 26 meetings. I have to favor the Mets with deGrom but I don’t think there is much value…
