The New York Mets look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Mets have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last five games. The Mets have won six of their last seven games when scoring more than three runs. Lucas Duda leads New York with 53 hits and 25 RBI while Daniel Murphy and Michael Cuddyer have combined for 48 RBI. The New York Mets have split their last eight home games. Bartolo Colon takes the hill, and he’s 7-3 with a 4.82 ERA and 52 strikeouts this season. Colon is 4-3 with a 3.42 ERA and 34 strikeouts in his career against the Marlins.
The Marlins are 17-35 in their last 52 games vs. a right-handed starter and 1-4 in Phelps' last 5 starts. The Mets are 5-2 in their last 7 vs. National League East and 8-3 in Colons last 11 starts. The Marlins are 2-4 in the last 6 meetings in New York.
We've made some nice coin backing the Marlins twice this series as underdogs, let's try one more time. The fish are hitting the ball well and know they need to keep making a push if they hope to give themselves a shot late after the All Star break. I like Miami for the sweep.
