Offensively, Carlos Gomez has an eight-game hitting streak and Jonathan Lucroy has scored eight runs in as many games.

The Mets snapped a six-game losing streak with a win on Tuesday and are six games below a .500 record. While the Mets have a decent ERA of 3.70 on the season, they’ve allowed four or more runs in five of their last six games. The Mets are 6-26 when allowing more than three runs. Offensively, Curtis Granderson has scored three runs in his last two games and Daniel Murphy has two homers in his last four games. Jacob deGrom gets the start, and he’s 0-2 with a 3.19 ERA and has 28 strikeouts in 31 innings. This is deGrom’s first career game against the Brewers.
The Brewers are 1-5 in Peralta's last 6 starts and 2-6 in their last 8 during game 2 of a series. The Mets are 1-4 in deGroms last 5 starts and 22-59 in their last 81 games as a home underdog. The Brewers are 10-2 in the last 12 meetings in New York.
The Brewers are the better team and have the better pitcher on the mound. Getting them at this price has to be the play, as the Mets have been a disaster lately.
