The Colorado Rockies will play the New York Mets in Game 3 of their series at Citi Field on Saturday night.

The Colorado Rockies are 54-73 this season and have lost four of their last five games. Colorado has lost the first two games of this series by scores of 3-1 and 7-6. The Colorado pitching staff has a 5.13 ERA, a 1.47 WHIP, and a .277 opponent batting average this season. The Rockies offense has scored 574 runs with a .263 batting average and a .323 on base percentage. C.J. Cron is batting .270 with 24 home runs and 84 RBI’s for the Rockies this season. The projected starter for Colorado is Kyle Freeland, who is 7-8 with a 4.93 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP over 137 innings pitched this season.

The New York Mets are 81-46 this season and have won three of their last five games. Prior to winning the first two games of this series, New York lost both games in their series against the Yankees. The New York pitching staff has a 3.58 ERA, a 1.20 WHIP, and a .237 opponent batting average. The Mets offense has scored 604 runs with a .258 batting average and a .330 on base percentage this year. Pete Alonso is batting .273 with 31 home runs and 105 RBI’s for the Mets this season. The projected starter for New York is David Peterson, who is 6-3 with a 3.44 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP over 83.2 innings pitched this season.

Colorado is 3-9 in their last 12 games and 1-5 in their last 6 game three’s of a series. The under is 4-0 in Colorado’s last 4 Saturday games. New York is 5-1 in their last 6 Saturday games and 23-9 in their last 32 games. The under is 4-1 in New York’s last 5 home games. Colorado is 1-7 in these two teams last 8 head to head meetings.

New York comes into this game trying to hold off the Braves in the NL East, who are only two games behind the Mets now. New York had a comfortable lead just a few weeks ago, but Atlanta has almost caught them and is playing great baseball right now. New York has the advantage in this game and Peterson has actually been a very good starter for them this year. I like the Mets to win by two runs here and also like their team total over.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
