The New York Mets and the Cincinnati Reds will match up on the MLB diamond Sunday.
In the Friday installment of this set, the Mets rolled to an 8-1 win. On Saturday, the Reds evened it up with a 3-2 victory, out-hitting New York 9-3.
For Sunday’s game, the Mets will go with Steven Matz in the start. Across 149.1 innings and a 10-9 mark this year, Matz has a 4.16 ERA with 143 Ks and 47 BBs.
Over on the Reds’ side, they’re going with Trevor Bauer to start Sunday. Over 206.0 innings and a 11-12 mark so far, Bauer has a 4.41 ERA with 245 Ks and 82 BBs.
The Mets are 13-6 in their last 19 in game three of a series and 0-4 in their last four Sunday games. New York is 3-9 in Matz’s last 12 Sunday starts and 1-4 in his last five road starts.
Meanwhile, the Reds are 5-0 in their last five in game three of a series and 2-5 in Bauer’s last seven starts. Cincinnati is 2-5 in Bauer’s last seven on grass and the under is 5-2 in the Reds’ last seven in game three of a series.
Matz had a good run of seven starts going with two earned or fewer, but coughed up seven over 4.0 innings his last time up. That was in Colorado, though.
Bauer has a couple quality starts under his belt right now, with three earned in 14.1 innings of work. Still, I expect Matz to bounce back here and win the pitching battle so I’m going Mets.
