The Washington Nationals and New York Mets face off on Sunday in an MLB showdown at Citi Field. The two teams have split the first two games of this series.
The Nationals come into this game with a 46-87 record overall but they scored seven runs on Saturday and that was enough to secure the victory. Overall this season the pitching has been an issue and they are giving up 5.4 runs per game which is 30th in the league. Nelson Cruz has had a nice season hitting 10 home runs and driving in 64 RBIs.
On the other side of this matchup is the Mets who sit with an 85-49 record overall, but the offense really struggled on Saturday on the way to the loss. The Mets offense has been the strength overall this season averaging 4.69 runs per game. The pitching staff has also been impressive and is currently ranked 4th in terms of runs given up. Pete Alonso is having a big season hitting 32 home runs and driving in 106 RBIs.
On the mound for the Nationals will be Erick Fedde who sits with a 5-9 record and an ERA of 5.29. In his last start against the A’s he went 2.2 innings giving up nine hits and six runs.
On the mound for the Mets will be Carlos Carrasco who sits with a 13-5 record overall and an ERA of 3.92. Carrasco threw a simulated game a couple of days ago and is now ready for some real action. It's unclear if he's going to be on a pitch count for this game.
The Mets are 5-0 in Carrasco’s last five home starts. The over is 4-0 in Fedde’s last four starts against the National League East. The under is 5-1 in the Nationals' last five games during Game 3 of a series.
The Mets have won the last five home starts by Carrasco and it’s going to happen again here. The Nationals' offense has struggled all season and they are going to struggle again here against Carrasco. Back the Mets to win this game on the run line.
