The New York Mets battle the Los Angeles Dodgers in game two of their NLDS on Saturday.
The pitching heavy New York Mets knew their arms would have to carry them against the Dodgers in game one of their NLDS and that’s how things panned out in a 3-1 victory on Friday. Starter Jacob deGrom tossed a five hit shutout over 7.1 frames and struck out 13 in picking up the win. The bats did just enough on five hits and four walks that saw Daniel Murphy go solo while David Wright singled in Ruben Tejada and Lucas Duda. Rookie Noah Syndergaard opposes the Dodgers for the second time on the season. Syndergaard is part of a promising New York rotation where he has gone 9-7 with a 3.24 ERA.

The over is 16-5-2 in the last 23 meetings and the Mets are 7-16 in the last 23 meetings. As expected the odds are huge and I’m not sure Syndergaard is up to the task but…
