The New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies face off on Sunday in an MLB showdown at Citizens Bank Park. The Mets have won two of the first three games of this series.
The Mets sit with a 78-44 record overall, but they are coming off a loss in their last game on Saturday night. The Mets offense could only manage one run on Saturday night and that led to the loss. The Mets are averaging 4.75 runs per game which is 5th in the league. The offense has also been good and is ranked 4th in the league. Pete Alonso has hit 30 home runs and driven in 102 RBIs.
On the other side of this matchup is the Phillies who sit with a 66-54 record overall and they had lost three games in a row before winning on Saturday night. Over the last four games, the Phillies have scored only four runs total and they need to find a way to get the offense going. The Phillies are averaging 4.58 runs per game which is 8th in the league, and they need the offense to be good here.
On the mound for the Mets is Jose Butto who will be getting called up to the majors to get his first MLB start.
On the mound for the Phillies Kyle Gibson who sits with an 8-5 record and an ERA of 4.30. In his last start against the Cincinnati Reds he went six innings giving up six hits and three runs.
The Mets are 4-0 in their last four games on Sunday. The under is 8-2 in the Phillies last ten games overall. The under is 6-1 in the Phillies last seven games against the National League East.
The Mets have been put in a tough spot having to call up Butto for this fight, and I don’t think he is going to find a whole lot of success here. The Phillies offense is one of the best in baseball and they will run up the score against Butto here. Back the Phillies to get the job done here on the run line.
