New York Mets

The Mets scored twice in both the first and fifth innings Friday, eventually powering out a 5-2 victory. On Saturday New York came back from a 6-1 deficit and held a brief lead in a 10-7 loss. Justin Verlander gave up six earned on nine hits and a walk in 5.0 innings as starter.

For the starter job on Sunday, the Mets will send out Tylor Megill. In his 10 starts so far Megill is 5-3 with a 4.32 ERA and 40 Ks in 50.0 innings. Megill is 13-11 with a 4.62 ERA in 43 career games (37 starts).

Colorado Rockies

Over on the Rockies’ side, they out-hit the Mets 8-7 on Friday but couldn’t get much going on the scoreboard. On Saturday Colorado out-hit New York 14-12 in the win. Starter Chase Anderson put up 5.0 innings, one earned, four hits and a walk.

Austin Gomber will take the mound for the Rockies on Sunday. Over his 10 starts this year Gomber is 4-4 with a 6.48 ERA and 31 strikeouts over 50.0 frames. He’s 25-23 with a 4.89 ERA in 109 career games (65 starts).

The Mets are 39-17 in their last 56 in game three of a series and 2-8 in their last 10 versus a lefty starter. The over is 3-1-1 in New York’s last five overall.

Meanwhile, the Rockies are 6-2 in their last eight in game three of a series and the over is 6-2 in their last eight in game three of a series. The over is 4-1 in Colorado’s last five Sunday games.


I’ll probably try the Mets in this one. Megill was pretty sketchy in his last start at Wrigley Field, going 3.2 innings with four earned in a loss. That said, Megill went 2-0 in his previous pair with 11.0 total innings, three earned, eight hits and five walks. On Saturday the Mets didn’t have a great pitching outing but overall the offense worked. If New York can keep that going I think they’re good for a victory here.
