Manaea in his last start went five innings, giving up only two hits and zero runs, and he’s going to dominate again here. The Nationals bats are going to really struggle here, and that is going to be the difference here. Herz sits with an ERA of 5.48, and he’s going to be blown up here. The Mets offense is going to tee off on Herz and that is going to be the difference here as they will get the job done. Back the Mets on the run line.
