The New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies face off on Wednesday in a National League MLB showdown at Citizens Bank Park.
In the first game of the series the Mets bullpen blew it late and the Phillies won 5-4. In the second game the Mets only scored two runs, but that was enough with the pitching to secure the win.
The Mets come into this game with a 4-2 record overall and most of their success has been because of the starting pitching. In three games already this season the Mets have given up one run or less. The top player this season for the Mets has been Pete Alonso and he has hit one home run and driven in five RBI’s. The Mets offense needs to try and give some run support in this game.
On the other side of this matchup is the Philadelphia Phillies who sit with a 3-2 record and they are a bit lucky to not be down 0-2 in this series. The Phillies have also used the pitching for their success and on Tuesday they couldn’t get anything going with their bats. The top player has been Rhys Hoskins and he has hit a home run and driven in four RBI’s.
Getting the start for the Mets will be Max Scherzer and in his last start against the Nationals he went six innings giving up three hits and three earned runs.
Getting the start for the Phillies will be Aaron Nola and in his last start against the A’s he went six innings giving up four hits and four runs.
The Mets are 4-11 in their last 15 road games. The Phillies are 7-3 in their last 10 home games. The Mets are 2-7 in their last nine meetings. The under is 8-1-2 in the last 11 meetings between the two teams.
These are both offenses that have struggled to score and I expect that is going to continue in this game. Look for both offenses to struggle against Nola and Scherzer and this game is going to stay well under the total. Back the under.
