The San Diego Padres and the New York Mets will match up on the MLB diamond to continue their series on Wednesday.

The Padres managed a 5-1 win during the Monday opener of this set. On Tuesday, the Mets won 5-2.

For Wednesday’s game, the Padres will send out Dinelson Lamet in the start. Over 14.0 innings and an 0-2 mark so far, Lamet has a 5.14 ERA with 19 Ks and six walks.

San Diego managed just five hits on Tuesday. Fernando Tatis was one of the few bright spots with two hits, a run and an RBI.

Over on the Mets’ side, they’re going with Noah Syndergaard in the start on Wednesday. In 119.2 innings and a 7-4 mark so far, Syndergaard has a 4.36 ERA with 118 Ks and 31 BBs.

Robinson Cano was the undoubted hero of the Tuesday game. He would finish with three homers and five RBI to carry the offense.

The Padres are 0-4 in Lamet’s last four starts with five days’ rest and 0-4 in his last four versus the NL East. San Diego is 0-6 in Lamet’s last six road starts and 1-11 in his last 12 overall.

Meanwhile, the Mets are 3-9 in their last 12 Wednesday games and 4-0 in Syndergaard’s last four starts. New York is 5-1 in Syndergaard’s last six starts and 6-1 in his last seven in game two of a series.

Lamet has been pretty “blah” over his three starts this season. He’s given up a total of eight earned in those, and it’s been a long, long time since he’s recorded a victory at the MLB level.

As for Syndergaard, he had a bit of a sketchy patch toward the end of June but has consecutive quality starts to his credit. I can’t see a whole lot of reasons not to go Mets here.
