The Line: Washington Nationals / New York Mets -- Over/Under:
The Washington Nationals and New York Mets meet Monday in MLB action at Citi Field.
The Washington Nationals look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Nationals have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 10 games. The Washington Nationals have won seven of their last nine games when scoring four or more runs. Adam Eaton leads the Nationals with 51 hits and 11 RBI while Victor Robles and Anthony Rendon have combined for 79 hits and 43 RBI. Patrick Corbin gets the ball, and he is 4-1 with a 2.91 ERA and 69 strikeouts this season. Corbin is 2-4 with a 4.39 ERA and 66 strikeouts in his career against the Mets.
The New York Mets could use a win here to snap a five-game losing streak. The Mets have scored six runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last 10 games. The New York Mets have won four of their last six games when scoring four or more runs. Jeff McNeil leads the Mets with 53 hits and 14 RBI while Amed Rosario and Pete Alonso have combined for 85 hits and 58 RBI. Drew Gagnon gets the ball, and he is 1-0 with a 4.09 ERA and nine strikeouts this season. Gagnon is 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA and two strikeouts in his career against the Nationals.
The Nationals are 16-35 in their last 51 during game 1 of a series, 0-4 in their last 4 Monday games and 5-1 in Corbin's last 6 starts. The Mets are 5-2 in their last 7 Monday games, 2-5 in their last 7 during game 1 of a series and 0-5 in their last 5 vs. National League East. The Nationals are 54-22 in the last 76 meetings in New York and 5-2 in the last 7 meetings. The under is 12-4-1 in Mets last 17 overall. The under is 3-0-1 in Nationals last 4 road games.
The Washington Nationals have found their offense over the last week, which is certainly going to come in handy on the road. Corbin has been solid all season long, and he's pitching his best at the moment where he's allowed seven hits and one run in his last 15 innings. Corbin is allowing a .202 batting average on the season, and he's allowing a .206 batting average with 37 strikeouts in 141 career at bats against current Mets hitters. These seems to be a bullpen game from the Mets with Gagnon getting the ball, and it's hard to get behind them during this losing streak. I'll take the Nets behind one of their top pitchers.
