The Texas Rangers and New York Mets face off on Friday in an MLB showdown at Citi Field in New York. 

The Rangers come into this game with a 36-38 record overall and they are coming off another loss in the last game. The offense only managed one run against the Kansas City Royals and that led to the one-run defeat. The Rangers are close to .500 and they are close to the middle of the road in terms of runs scored and runs given up. The top offensive player for the Rangers has been Adolis Garcia and has hit 15 home runs and driven in 49 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the New York Mets who sit with a 47-29 record overall and in the last game against the Houston Astros they were defeated 2-0. The Mets have lost three games in a row and during the three games, the Mets only scored three runs total. Overall this season the Mets offense has been strong this year averaging 4.82 runs per game which is 4th in baseball. Pete Alonso has hit 31 home runs and driven in 69 RBIs.

On the mound for the Rangers Glenn Otto and he sits with a 4-3 record and an ERA of 5.31. In his last start against the Washington Nationals, he went two innings giving up six hits and six earned runs. 

On the mound for the Mets will be Chris Bassitt who sits with a 6-5 record and an ERA of 4.01. In his last start against the Miami Marlins, Bassitt went seven innings giving up six hits and three runs.

The Mets are 0-4 in their last four interleague games. The over is 4-0 in the Mets last four games during game 1 of a series. The Rangers are 4-0 in their last four interleague road games. 

Otto has had some struggles this year, and he is coming off a game where he gave up six runs. The Mets offense is one of the best in baseball, and I expect they bounce back here. Look for the Mets to tee off of Otto early in this game, and New York is going to cruise to the victory. Back the Mets -1.5.
