The Miami Marlins and the New York Mets will meet up on the MLB diamond Tuesday.

In the Monday opener of this set, Miami broke out to a 6-0 lead in the sixth and added two more in the seventh for an eventual 8-4 win.

For Tuesday’s game, the Marlins will go with Sandy Alcantara in the start. Across his 184.1 innings and 5-14 mark so far, Alcantara has a 4.00 ERA with 140 Ks and 80 BBs.

Over on the Mets’ side, they’re sending out Noah Syndergaard on Tuesday. Over 185.2 innings and a 10-8 record, Syndergaard has a 4.22 ERA with 186 Ks and 48 BBs.

The Marlins are 18-40 in their last 58 in game two of a series and 11-27 in their last 38 Tuesday games. Miami is 8-20 in Alcantara’s last 28 starts and 1-7 in his last eight road starts.

Meanwhile, the Mets are 16-6 in their last 22 Tuesday games and 12-5 in Syndergaard’s last 17 Tuesday starts. New York is 7-3 in Syndergaard’s last 10 starts in game two of a series and 1-4 in his last five at home versus a team with a losing record.

Alcantara had consecutive quality starts going this month, with one earned in 16.0 innings. He’s lost his last two starts though, and gave up four earned in 5.2 innings his last time up.

As for Syndergaard, he’s coughed up a total of 12 earned in his last 15.2 innings over three starts. I don’t have a ton of faith in Syndergaard coming out firing here, so I’m going Marlins.
