The Miami Marlins and New York Mets face off on Saturday in an MLB showdown at City Field in New York City. On Friday it was the Mets that cruised to the easy 10-4 victory. 

The Mets come into this game with a 43-23 record overall and after some struggles the last week, they have won two games in a row. In each of the last two games the Mets have given up four runs, but they have scored 15 runs total. The Mets offense has been the strength all season averaging 5.03 runs per game. Francisco Lindor has hit 10 home runs and driven in 49 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Marlins who sit with a 28-34 record overall and this is a team that has shown some flashes of being a strong team, but they have been inconsistent. The Marlins have lost two games in a row and only scored five runs total during the last two games. The Marlins are averaging 4.53 runs per game and they need to score a lot more runs in this game. Jazz Chisholm has hit 13 home runs and driven in 41 RBIs.

On the mound for the Marlins is Braxton Garrett who sits with a 1-1 record and an ERA of 4.00. In his last start against the Astros he went 5.2 innings giving up six hits and one run. 

On the mound for the Mets is Taijuan Walker who sits with a 4-2 record and an ERA of 3.08. In his last start against the Angels he went six innings giving up six hits and one run. 

The Mets are 0-4 in their last four games during game 2 of a series. The Mets are 1-9 in Walker’s last 10 home starts. The over is 4-0 in the Mets last four games on Saturday. 

Walker has been good this season, but it hasn’t seemed to matter, the Mets still struggle when he is on the mound at home. Garrett in his last start was lights out giving up only one run. The Mariners will score four or five runs here, and with Garrett having a strong start, it will be enough for Miami to get the job done. Back the Marlins on the money line.
