The New York Mets and Toronto Blue Jays meet Sunday in MLB action at Sahlen Field.
The New York Mets need a win after splitting their last 12 games. The Mets have scored 27 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 10 games. The Mets have won six of their last seven games when scoring four or more runs. Michael Conforto leads the Mets with 58 hits and 31 RBI while Jeff McNeil and Dominic Smith have combined for 86 hits and 57 RBI. David Peterson gets the ball, and he is 4-1 with a 4.26 ERA and 24 strikeouts this season. This will be Peterson’s first career game against the Blue Jays.
The Toronto Blue Jays look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Blue Jays have scored six runs in their last three games and three or less runs in four straight games. The Blue Jays have lost five of their last eight games when scoring three or less runs. Teoscar Hernandez leads the Blue Jays with 45 hits and 27 RBI while Randal Grichuk and Lourdes Gurriel Jr. have combined for 88 hits and 50 RBI. Hyun-Jin Ryu gets the ball, and he is 3-1 with a 3.19 ERA and 53 strikeouts this season. Ryu is 4-1 with a 1.20 ERA and 52 strikeouts in his career against the Mets.
The Mets are 4-1 in their last 5 interleague games, 13-4 in their last 17 interleague road games and 2-5 in their last 7 Sunday games. The Blue Jays are 9-3 in their last 12 games as a favorite, 15-7 in their last 22 games on grass and 16-39 in their last 55 during game 3 of a series. The over is 5-0 in Mets last 5 overall. The over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
David Peterson has allowed five runs and five hits in his last six innings while Hyun-Jin Ryu has allowed six runs and 11 hits in his last 11 innings. Ryu has been the better pitcher this season and the Blue Jays have won six of the last seven games he's pitched. The Toronto Blue Jays offense is also going to come around eventually and this feels like a good spot. I'll lay the reasonable price with the Blue Jays at home.
