The Miami Marlins and New York Mets face off on Friday in an MLB showdown at Citi Field in New York City. The Mets offense was elite on Thursday to secure the victory. 

The Mets come into this game with a 52-31 record overall and the offense has been strong in each of the last two games. Two games ago the offense scored eight runs and the offense has been a strength most of the season. The Mets are averaging 4.78 runs per game which is 4th best in the league. Pete Alonso is having a strong season hitting 22 home runs and driving in 69 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Marlins who sit with a 39-42 record overall and have lost two games in a row. In each of the last two games, the offense has been an issue, and they need to find more scoring here. The Marlins are averaging 4.35 runs per game which is 17th best in the league. Jazz Chisholm has been the top offensive player hitting 14 home runs and driving in 45 RBIs.

On the mound for the Marlins is Pablo Lopez who sits with a 5-4 record and an ERA of 2.94. In his last start against the Washington Nationals, he went 6.1 innings giving up three hits and two runs. 

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

The Mets are 4-0 in their last four games on Friday. The Mets are 2-8 in their last 10 games during Game 2 of a series. The over is 6-0 in Lopez’s last six starts overall. 

The Marlins looked awful on Thursday, but they are going to bounce back here. The better pitcher this season has been Pablo Lopez, and the Mets are going to really struggle to score against him. Look for the Marlins to reach at least their season average against Bassitt, and the Marlins will secure the victory.
