The New York Mets are trying to sew up a Wild Card and need to string together a few wins. After losing three straight the Mets defeated visiting Philadelphia for back to back wins. NYM starter Gabriel Ynoa gave up two runs with Josh Smoaker gave up two runs each but three relievers put up zeros. New York banged out ten hits and walked four times with Michael Conforto going deep and driving in three with five others driving in runs while three players scored two times apiece. Noah Syndergaard is slated to be on the hill versus the Phillies for the third time on the year. Syndergaard looks to bounce back from a 7-3 loss to Atlanta with five runs allowed in 3.1 frames.
The under is 6-1-2 in Philadelphia’s last 9 road games and the over is 6-2-1 in their last 9 Saturday games while the Phillies are 2-8 in Asher’s last 10 starts. The under is 7-3 in the Mets last 10 overall and is 7-3 in their last 10 on grass while going 7-3 in their last 10 home games. Philadelphia are 4-13 in the last 17 meetings in New York and are 16-39 in the last 55 meetings. I’ll back the home team who need wins…
