Francisco Lindor has 17 doubles of his own with 12 home runs and 34 RBIs while Marte also has a team-high 12 stolen bases. Brandon Nimmo has 35 RBIs and 73 strikeouts as well this season.

Texas Rangers Recap

The Texas Rangers come into this game looking for a bounce back showing after starting this series on the wrong foot with a blowout loss in Monday’s opener. The loss was another step in the wrong direction for a Rangers team that was already reeling after being swept by the Seattle Mariners this past weekend.

Rangers Can’t Find Footing At The Plate

Corey Seager also has a team-high 14 home runs with 33 RBIs of his own this season.

Why the Texas Rangers will win

  • The Rangers have won eight of their last nine home games against NL East opponents following a home loss.
  • The Mets have lost 15 of their last 17 road games against American League opponents.
  • The Mets have failed to cover the run line in each of their last 10 road games against American League opponents following a road win.
  • The Rangers have covered the run line in each of their last six Tuesday home games against National League opponents.

Texas Rangers vs NY Mets Prediction

I’m on the Mets here. I simply can’t back the Rangers in their current form. I know Texas will work it out eventually, and this is a Texas team I expect to be in the playoff hunt over the last month of the season, but the fact is the Rangers simply don’t have it right now offensively. The Mets are on another one of those rolls where it’s hard to go against them and the main issue for the longest time, which was the bullpen, has started to sort itself out and at a cheap price, I have to go with the Mets here.
