The New York Mets and the Chicago White Sox will match up on the MLB diamond to begin their series on Tuesday.

The Mets just finished up against the Pirates this weekend. New York managed a sweep in that set, winning 6-3 Friday, 3-0 Saturday and 8-7 in the Sunday finale.

For Tuesday’s matchup, the Mets will be going with Noah Syndergaard in the start. Across 126.2 innings and a 7-5 record this year, Syndergaard has a 4.33 ERA with 126 Ks and 36 BBs.

Over on the White Sox’ side, they’re coming off a series versus the Twins. Chicago put up a 5-1 victory on Saturday but lost the other three games; 10-3 Thursday, 6-2 Friday and 11-1 in the Sunday matchup.

For the Tuesday game, the Sox will send out Reynaldo Lopez as the starter. In his 119.0 innings and 5-9 record this season, Lopez has a 5.52 ERA with 111 Ks and 42 BBs.

The Mets are 5-1 in their  last six Tuesday games and 4-0 in their last four overall. New York is 13-30 in their last 43 road games and 5-2 in Syndergaard’s last seven starts.

Meanwhile, the Sox are 14-37 in their last 51 Tuesday games and 1-5 in their last six overall. Chicago is 1-5 in their last six home games and 1-4 in Lopez’s last five home starts.

Syndergaard has a nice three-game run going. In his last trio of outings, he’s put up 7.0 innings and a quality start in each, and a combined six earned runs with 25 strikeouts.

As for Lopez, he’s also got three straight quality starts, with four earned across a stretch of 21.0 innings and 25 total strikeouts as well.

SP-wise this is a nice matchup. The Mets seem to have found some rhythm lately though, so I’m taking New York for the win here.
