On the mound for the Mets will be Taijuan Walker who sits with a 10-3 record and an ERA of 3.45. In his last start against the Los Angeles Dodgers, he went 5.1 innings giving up five hits and three runs.
On the mound for the Pirates will be Mitch Keller who sits with a 4-10 record and an ERA of 4.43 In his last start against the Milwaukee Brewers he went six innings giving up four hits and two runs.
The Pirates are 8-0 in their last eight home games. The under is 5-0 in the Pirates last five games on grass. The under is 6-0 in the Pirates last six games following a loss. The under is 5-0 in the Pirates last five games against a right handed starter.
Walker gave up three runs in his last start, and it will be even less in this game. The Pirates offense has been an issue all season but especially coming into this game the bats have been ice cold. Look for the Mets to score enough off of Keller who sits with an ERA of 4.43 and that will be the difference here. Back the Mets on the run line.
