The Mets have dropped the first two games of this series, but still hold a slim lead in the NL East over the Braves. The Mets wasted a pretty good pitching performance on Tuesday night and will turn to David Peterson on Wednesday, who has allowed nine earned runs over his last 25 innings pitched. For the Cubs, Drew Smyly has allowed seven runs over his last 15.1 innings pitched this season. I am taking the Mets to get back on the winning track here. I expect a big offensive performance, as they have been silenced in the first two games of this series. Smyly did just allow seven runs in one start to the Cardinals, so he can definitely give up runs in bunches.
