The New York Mets will play the Chicago Cubs in Game 4 of their series at Wrigley Field on Sunday afternoon.

The New York Mets are 58-34 this season and have won four games in a row. New York has won the first three games of this series by scores of 8-0, 2-1, and 4-3. The New York pitching staff has a 3.63 ERA, a 1.18 WHIP, and a .232 opponent batting average this season. The Mets offense has scored 435 runs with a .252 batting average and a .324 on base percentage. Pete Alonso is batting .265 with 24 home runs and 77 RBI’s for the Mets this season. The projected starter for New York is David Peterson, who is 5-2 with a 3.48 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP over 67.1 innings pitched this season.

The Chicago Cubs are 34-57 this season and have lost nine games in a row. Prior to losing the first three games of this series, Chicago lost both games played against Baltimore.

The Mets have won the first three games of this series, including both games of the double header on Saturday. New York leads the NL East by 2.5 games over the Atlanta Braves, while Chicago is 15.5 games behind the Brewers in the NL Central. David Peterson is starting for New York and he has 10 runs in his last 27.1 innings pitched. For the Cubs, Adrian Sampson has allowed 10 earned runs in his last 26 innings. I like the under in this game and I expect the Mets to complete the sweep. David Peterson has been strong in his last few outings and should have no issues here.
