The Saint Louis Cardinals will visit the New York Mets in the first game of their series in the National League East versus National League Central matchup from Citi Field on Tuesday night. The weather is expected to be extremely humid with a 95.2% chance of rain and 11.6 miles per hour winds. There will be a doubleheader as the first game was postponed. 

The Saint Louis Cardinals are coming off of a 9 run win against the San Francisco Giants in their last game. Molina homered and drove in four runs in the win.  Paul Goldschmidt and Nolan Arenado each added a two-run homer for the Cardinals. The series ended at 2-1 in favor of the Saint Louis Cardinals. 

Carlos Rodon got the start for the Saint Louis Cardinals in this one. He has a 3.49 ERA, with 56 strikes and a 1.11 whip. He allowed eight runs and 10 hits over 3 2/3 innings in the win.

Saint Louis Cardinals left-hander, Steven Matz will be the starter for this one. He has a 6.40 ERA, with 37 strikes and a 1.52 whip.

The New York Mets are coming off of a 1 run loss against the Seattle Mariners in their last game. The series ended at 2-1 in favor of the Seattle Mariners. 

Carlos Carrasco got the start for the New York Mets in this one. He has a 3.73 ERA, with 35 strikes and a 1.12 whip. He pitched four innings before calling it a night in the loss. 

New York Mets right-hander, Taijuan Walker will be the starter for this one. He has a 3.00 ERA, with 8 strikes and a 1.06 whip.

Although the Cardinals are 17-7 in their last 24 vs. a team with a winning record, but are 2-5 in their last 7 games vs. a right-handed starter. The Mets are 7-2 in their last 9 during game 1 of a series and are 7-2 in their last 9 vs. a team with a winning record. The Mets are also 9-0 in their last 9 Tuesday games and are 17-8 in their last 25 games as a home favorite. I think the Mets win the first one here and the Cards grab the second.
