The Line: New York Mets -143 / San Diego Padres +132 -- Over/Under: 7.5
The New York Mets and San Diego Padres meet Tuesday in MLB action at Petco Park.
The New York Mets could use a win to snap a four-game losing streak. The Mets have allowed 11 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last 12 games. The New York Mets have lost 11 of their last 14 games when allowing one or more runs. Offensively, Jeff McNeil leads the Mets with 42 hits and 13 RBI while Pete Alonso and Amed Rosario have combined for 70 hits and 45 RBI. Noah Syndergaard gets the ball, and he is 2-3 with a 5.02 ERA and 49 strikeouts this season. Syndergaard is 1-2 with a 4.50 ERA and 24 strikeouts in his career against the Padres.
The San Diego Padres look for a victory after splitting their last 10 games. The Padres have scored 18 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last seven games. The San Diego Padres have won 10 of their last 13 games when scoring four or more runs. Eric Hosmer leads the Padres with 38 hits and 22 RBI while Manny Machado and Fernando Tatis Jr. have combined for 61 hits and 32 RBI. Cal Quantrill gets the ball, and he is 0-1 with a 3.18 ERA and three strikeouts this season. This will be Quantrill’s first career game against the Mets.
The Mets are 10-4 in their last 14 during game 2 of a series, 0-5 in their last 5 road games and 5-2 in Syndergaard's last 7 starts vs. National League West. The Padres are 9-22 in their last 31 during game 2 of a series, 2-5 in their last 7 Tuesday games and 3-9 in their last 12 vs. a team with a losing record. The over is 19-7-2 in the last 28 meetings in San Diego and 8-2 in the last 10 meetings. The under is 13-6 in Padres last 19 home games. The over is 4-1 in Syndergaard's last 5 starts overall.
Syndergaard hasn't been his normal self this season, but he's coming off a complete game shutout of the Cincinnati Reds where he allowed four hits and struck out 10. It was only a matter of time before Syndergaard turns things around, and it looks like that time has come. Quantrill has just 5.2 career innings under his belt, and while he had his moments against the Braves and wasn't horrible, it was still a small sample size and he still allowed six hits. The bottom line is we're not used to seeing Syndergaard and the prices, and you won't much longer once he proves he's back to being the Cy Young caliber pitcher. I'll take advantage of it while I still can.
