The Miami pitching staff has a 3.87 ERA, a 1.24 WHIP, and a .236 opponent batting average. The Marlins offense has scored 403 runs with a .238 batting average and a .301 on base percentage this year.

New York is 5-0 in their last 5 games and 46-22 in their last 68 games against the NL East. The under is 4-1 in New York’s last 5 Sunday games. Miami is 5-1 in their last 6 Sunday games and 0-6 in their last 6 home games. The over is 16-6-1 in Miami’s last 23 game three’s of a series. New York is 10-4 in these two teams last 14 head to head meetings.
New York has been able to maintain their lead in the NL East, but the Braves are playing very well and are only three games back. The Mets will be starting Taijuan Walker, who has allowed four runs over his last 19 innings pitched. For the Marlins, Pablo Lopez has allowed eight runs over his last 22 innings of work. These two pitchers have been very good this season and I do not expect many runs in this game.
