The New York Mets look for another win after winning seven of their last 10 games. The Mets have scored 11 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 10 games. The New York Mets offense has gotten hot recently, and they’ve won seven straight games when scoring more than three runs. Yoenis Cespedes leads New York with 87 hits, Asdrubal Cabrera has 29 RBI and Curtis Granderson has 15 home runs. Steven Matz takes the hill, and he’s 7-4 with a 3.34 ERA and 85 strikeouts this season. This will be Matz’s second career game against the Nationals.
The Nationals are 24-11 in their last 35 during game 4 of a series and 1-8 in Gonzalezs last 9 starts. The Mets are 1-5 in their last 6 Sunday games and 2-5 in Matzs last 7 starts. The Nationals are 5-2 in Gonzalezs last 7 starts vs. Mets.
The Nats haven't had much success this season with Gonzalez on he hill and Matz has allowed three or less runs in eight of his last 10 games. I like the value of the Mets at home and the low line.
