The New York Mets and the Arizona Diamondbacks clash in MLB action from Chase Field on Friday night.
The New York Mets will look to build on their series win over the Giants following their 6-2 win over San Francisco last time out. Francisco Lindor leads the Mets with 16 hits along with 4 home runs and a .308 batting average, while Pete Alonso also has 15 hits and 3 home runs with a team-high 14 RBIs. Eduardo Escobar has a team-high 7 doubles as well as a triple, and Brandon Nimmo has also chipped in a triple as well this season. David Peterson will start here and is 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA and 7 strikeouts this season.
The Arizona Diamondbacks will look to build on their series split with the Nationals after back-to-back wins with a 4-3 triumph over Washington. Seth Beer leads the D-Backs with 14 hits along with 8 RBIs while Daulton Varsho’s got a team-high 3 home runs this season. Ketel MArte and David Peralta each have a team-high 4 doubles as well this season. Zac Gallen is expected to get the start for Arizona here and is 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA and 2 strikeouts this season.
New York is 13-3 in their last 16 games as a favorite and 5-1 in their last 6 series-opening games, while the under is 4-1-1 in their last 6 series-opening games. Arizona is 1-4 in their last 5 home games and 3-10 in their last 13 games against the NL East, while the under is 5-1-1 in their last 7 home games.
I get the case that you could make for both teams here, and maybe you lean towards the Mets based on the entire team facet. However, Zac Gallen is arguably the best pitcher right now for the Diamondbacks and David Peterson has been rock solid for the Mets in their rotation. That’s why I’m leaning towards the first five innings under. I think we have a pitcher’s duel early on, and we find ourselves with a low-scoring game through the first five.
