The San Diego Padres could use a win here after splitting their last 10 games. The Padres have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 11 games. The San Diego Padres have split their last 10 games when scoring more than three runs. Wil Myers leads the Padres with 91 hits and 47 RBI while Hunter Renfroe and Manuel Margot have combined for 148 hits and 60 RBI. Jhoulys Chacin gets the ball, and he is 9-7 with a 4.26 ERA and 96 strikeouts this season. Chacin is 1-5 with a 6.50 ERA and 26 strikeouts in his career against the Mets.
The Mets are 0-6 in their last 6 Tuesday games, 6-1 in Lugos last 7 road starts and 12-2 in Lugos last 14 starts. The Padres are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series, 4-1 in Chacins last 5 home starts and 4-0 in Chacins last 4 starts. The over is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in San Diego.
Chacin has been really solid in his last several starts and has given the Padres four straight victories. However, Lugo has been solid in his ownright and is coming off one of his best starts in which he allowed four htis and one run in 6.2 innings against the Cardinals. For me, this game is all about the Mets offense that's heated up during the second half and has carried the way during this winning stretch. I like the Mets to get another victory.
