The Line: Toronto Blue Jays / New York Mets --- Over/Under: Click Here for the Latest Odds
The New York Mets and Toronto Blue Jays meet Saturday in MLB action at Sahlen Field.
The New York Mets look for a win after winning six of their last nine games. The Mets have scored 27 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 10 games. The Mets have won six of their last seven games when scoring four or more runs. Michael Conforto leads the Mets with 57 hits and 31 RBI while Jeff McNeil and Dominic Smith have combined for 85 hits and 57 RBI. Seth Lugo gets the ball, and he is 2-2 with a 2.05 ERA and 31 strikeouts this season. Lugo is 1-0 with a 1.50 ERA and six strikeouts in his career against the Blue Jays.
The Toronto Blue Jays look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Blue Jays have scored five runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five of their last 10 games. The Blue Jays have lost five of their last seven games when scoring three or less runs. Teoscar Hernandez leads the Blue Jays with 45 hits and 27 RBI while Lourdes Gurriel Jr. and Randal Grichuk have combined for 87 hits and 49 RBI. Robbie Ray gets the ball, and he is 1-4 with a 7.51 ERA and 52 strikeouts this season. Ray is 2-1 with a 2.78 ERA and 23 strikeouts in his career against the Mets.
Will update with trends once they're released.
Seth Lugo has allowed three earned runs and 13 hits in his last 17 innings while Robbie Ray has allowed five earned runs and 10 hits in his last 7.1 innings. The New York Mets have played the better baseball overall this week, and Ray is a pitcher we've faded a ton over the year and his numbers this season don't suggest he's turned things around. Ray is allowing a .272 batting average and has an ERA over seven, and he's been a batting practice pitcher for most of his career.
Give me the Mets if forced to pick this game.
