The Atlanta Braves and the New York Mets will finish out their MLB series on Sunday.
The Mets took a 4-2 victory on Friday in the opener, then Saturday New York kept it rolling on a 3-0 shutout.
For the Sunday game, the Braves will send out Mike Soroka in the start. Over his 169.2 innings and 13-4 mark so far, Soroka has a 2.60 ERA with 135 Ks and 39 BBs.
Over on the Mets’ side, they’re going with Noah Syndergaard in the start Sunday. Across 190.2 innings and a 10-8 mark so far, Syndergaard has a 4.30 ERA with 193 Ks and 48 BBs.
The Braves are 37-15 in their last 52 Sunday games and 36-17 in the last 53 in game three of a series. Atlanta is 14-3 in Soroka’s last 17 starts versus the NL East and 19-7 in his last 26 on grass.
Meanwhile, the Mets are 4-1 in their last five in game three of a series and 1-4 in their last five Sunday games. New York is 17-7 in Syndergaard’s last 24 Sunday starts and 7-3 in his last 10 versus a team with a winning record.
Over Soroka’s last two starts, he’s given up just two earned in 11.0 innings on six hits. He’s also 2-0 in that stretch and 3-1 in his last four games overall.
As for Syndergaard he’s given up four earned in each of his last four starts and has an 0-1 record there. I feel a little more comfortable with the Braves in this one but it’s admittedly a little sketchy.
