The New York Mets look for a win after winning five of their last seven games. The Mets have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last eight games. The New York Mets have won four straight games when scoring four or more runs. Jeff McNeil leads the Mets with 112 hits and 41 RBI while Amed Rosario and Pete Alonso have combined for 194 hits and 120 RBI. Steven Matz gets the ball, and he is 5-6 with a 4.87 ERA and 80 strikeouts this season. Matz is 1-0 with a 1.50 ERA and 20 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.
The San Francisco Giants look to stay hot after winning eight of their last 10 games. The Giants have scored eight runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 10 games. The San Francisco Giants have won five of their last seven games when scoring four or more runs. Kevin Pillar leads the Giants with 91 hits and 52 RBI while Brandon Belt and Joe Panik have combined for 152 hits and 62 RBI. Drew Pomeranz gets the ball, and he is 2-9 with a 6.10 ERA and 84 strikeouts this season. Pomeranz is 1-0 with a 2.25 ERA and 11 strikeouts in his career against the Mets.
The Mets are 0-4 in their last 4 during game 4 of a series, 2-6 in Matzs last 8 road starts and 1-4 in Matzs last 5 starts. The Giants are 4-0 in their last 4 games following a loss, 4-1 in their last 5 home games and 2-5 in their last 7 during game 4 of a series. The Mets are 8-3 in the last 11 meetings in San Francisco and the under is 4-1-1 in the last 6 meetings in San Francisco. The over is 11-5-1 in Giants last 17 overall. The under is 5-2 in Matzs last 7 road starts.
Matz has pitched just five innings this month and was absolutely terrible in the month of June. On the road this season in 46 innings, Matz has an ERA of 6.85 with an allowed batting average of .307. Pomeranz isn't the most trustworthy pitcher in the world either, and he's allowing a .296 batting average on the season, but he's allowed two or less earned runs in four of his last five home starts. The San Francisco Giants have bene quietly one of the hotter teams in baseball this second half. I'll take the home team in a pitching showdown that doesn't excite me.
