The New York Mets and the Miami Marlins will close out their MLB series with a matchup on Sunday.
In the opener Friday, the Marlins managed an 8-6 win. On Saturday, the Marlins one-hit the Mets on the way to a nice 2-0 win.
For Sunday’s game, the Mets will be going with Noah Syndergaard in the start. Over his 57.0 innings and 3-3 mark this year, Syndergaard has a 4.74 ERA with 60 Ks and 13 BBs.
The Mets couldn’t get much of anything going on offense Saturday. The only player to register a hit was Jeff McNeil, who went 1-for-3.
Over on the Marlins’ side, they’re going with Sandy Alcantara on Sunday. With 44.0 innings and a 1-4 record so far, Alcantara has a 5.11 ERA with 28 Ks and 23 BBs.
Miami put up five hits on Saturday, and that was more than enough to take care of New York. Jon Berti had a solid game and registered a solo homer in the first that proved to be the difference.
The Mets are 1-5 in their last six Sunday games and 0-4 in their last four in game three of a series. New York is 4-1 in Syndergaard’s last five road starts and 4-1 in his last five Sunday starts.
Meanwhile, the Marlins are 19-43 in their last 62 in game three of a series and 0-5 in their last five Sunday games. Miami is 1-4 in Alcantara’s last five home starts and 1-5 in his last six starts.
Looking at Syndergaard’s last three starts, they’ve been pretty darn good. Two of those starts were quality outings, both featured just four hits and at least 8.0 innings pitched (one was a complete game shutout).
As for Alcantara, he’s been okay but not great with 11 earned combined in his last three starts.
All things considered, this one should be the Mets’ to win.
