The San Diego Padres and the New York Mets face off on Monday at PETCO Park for game one of their MLB series.
The San Diego Padres have been hovering around the middle of the NL West standings unable to get much positive momentum. The Padres are 5-5 in their last 10 games, 13-14 at home, and they are 5.5 games behind the Dodgers in National League West standings. As a tam the Padres are hitting .245 with Justin Upton hitting .307, Derek Norris hitting .283, and Yangervis Solarte hitting .262. The Padres pitching staff has an ERA of 4.12 with the starters at 4.09 and the bullpen at 4.19. For game one against the Mets the Padres start Andrew Cashner who has allowed 65 hits and 21 earned runs while striking out 60 over 63 innings for a 2-7 record and a 3.00 ERA.

The New York Mets are in a battle in the NL East as they are just a half of a game behind the Nationals in the standings. The Mets are 5-5 in their last 10 games, 7-15 on the road, and they are coming off of a win on Sunday. As a team the Mets are hitting .237 with Lucas Duda hitting .298, Daniel Murphy hitting .272, and Michael Cuddyer hitting .260. The Mets pitching staff has an ERA of 3.40 with the starters at 3.67 and the bullpen at 2.75. For game one at San Diego the Mets start Jacob deGrom who has allowed 55 hits and 19 runs while striking out 63 over 63 innings for a 5-4 record and a 2.71 ERA.
San Diego is 3-7 in their last 10 home games, 35-16 as a home favorite, and 1-6 in Cashner’s last seven starts. New York is 4-0 against the NL West, 0-7 in their last seven road games, and 2-5 in deGrom’s last seven road starts. New York is 1-4 in their last five games in San Diego.
Cashner has had some tough luck and a lot of unearned runs but I look for the Padres to get the win here over a Mets team that hasn’t been as strong on the road.
