The Miami Marlins and the New York Mets will match up on the MLB diamond to continue their series Tuesday.
In the Monday doubleheader of this set, New York won game one 6-2, and in the nightcap bagged another win 5-4.
For Tuesday’s game, the Marlins will send out Jordan Yamamoto in the start. Over his 48.0 innings and 3.94 ERA this year, Yamamoto has 49 Ks, 22 BBS and a 4-2 record.
Miami secured nine hits on Monday, but could only score in two separate innings.
Over on the Mets’ side, they’re sending out Zach Wheeler on Tuesday. Wheeler is 8-6 with a 4.45 ERA and 144 strikeouts this year.
New York’s big inning Monday came in the seventh, when a Michael Conforto homer completed his three-RBI night.
The Marlins are 4-1 in their last five in game three of a series and 9-22 in their last 31 Tuesday games. The under is 4-1-1 in Miami’s last six Tuesday games and the over is 4-0 in Yamamoto’s last four starts.
Meanwhile, the Mets are 6-0 in their last six in game three of a series and 4-0 in their last four Tuesday games. The under is 4-0 in New York’s last four Tuesday games and the over is 6-2 in their last eight in game three of a series.
Yamamoto has stumbled quite a bit over his last three starts. In that time, he’s given up 15 earned runs in 14.0 innings on 13 hits with an 0-2 record. That choppy run comes following a total of six earned across his previous six starts.
I’m not necessarily trusting either one of these teams, but the Mets should have a better shot here.
