The New York Mets look to remain hot after winning seven of their last eight games. The Mets have scored 17 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last six games. The Mets have won nine straight when scoring more than three runs. Curtis Granderson leads New York with 137 hits and 64 RBI while Daniel Murphy and Lucas Duda have combined for 120 RBI. The New York Mets have split their last eight home games. Bartolo Colon takes the hill, and he’s 14-11 with a 4.13 ERA and 129 strikeouts this season. Colon is 7-3 with a 2.78 ERA and 43 strikeouts in his career against the Marlins.
The Marlins are 13-27 in their last 40 road games and 6-1 in Conleys last 7 starts. The Mets are 6-1 in their last 7 during game 3 of a series and 5-0 in Colons last 5 starts. The Mets are 5-1 in Colons last 6 starts vs. Marlins.
The Marlins are playing some solid ball as of late and have won six of Conley's last seven starts. Sure, the Mets are the better team and have Colon, but it's hard to ignore the value here we're getting with the fish.
I'll take my chances given this line.
