The Miami Marlins and the New York Mets will meet up on the MLB diamond to finish their series on Sunday.

In Friday’s game one, the Mets pounded out an 11-2 win. On Saturday, New York took another one 4-1.

For the Sunday game, the Marlins will be sending out Caleb Smith in the start. Across his 42.2 innings and 3-0 record this year, Smith has a 2.11 ERA with 56 Ks and 12 BBs.

The Marlins produced six hits on Saturday, but only turned them into one run. Jon Berti logged two hits with a run scored.

Over on the Mets’ side, they’re going with Noah Syndergaard on Sunday. In his 49.0 innings and 2-3 mark so far, Syndergaard has a 5.14 ERA with 54 Ks and 12 BBs.

Michael Conforto was the big hitter for the Mets on Saturday, logging a solo homer and two RBI in the victory.

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 4-1 in Smith’s last five starts and 5-0 in his last five versus a team with a losing record.

Meanwhile, the Mets are 1-5 in their last six Sunday games and 1-8 in their last nine in game three of a series. New York is 4-1 in Syndergaard’s last five Sunday starts and 9-3 in his last 12 home starts.

Smith has been on a tear this season, and he’s got a quality start in each of his last six outings. During that span, Smith has allowed a total of just eight runs in 37.2 innings.

As for Syndergaard, he’s really only got one good start in his last six, and in the other five he’s coughed up 22 earned runs.

I think the Marlins have a good shot here behind Smith. I’ll go Miami.
