The New York Mets have returned to their winning ways as they try to chase down the Nationals in the NL East. The Mets pen and their offense cost them Tuesday with a chance to pick up ground on first place Washington going by the wayside along with their five game winning streak. NYM starter Steven Matz gave up a pair of runs on six hits through seven innings before Erik Goeddel allowed three runs in one inning. New York did their damage on solo homers off the bats of Yoenis Cespedes and Alejandro De Aza. Jacob deGrom toes the rubber against Miami for the first time this season on Wednesday night. DeGrom is 4-4 on the year in 14 starts with a 1.10 WHIP and a 2.62 ERA.
The over is 9-1 in Miami’s last 10 overall and is 9-1 in their last 10 on grass while going 7-1 in Miami’s last 8 road games. The over is 15-6 in the Mets last 21 Wednesday games and the Mets are 7-3 in their last 10 Wednesday games while the under is 7-2-2 in deGroms last 11 Wednesday starts. I’ll back deGrom but he doesn’t get help so it’s risky…
