Game 1 Pick: Cory Abbott has had issues keeping the ball in the park and has had control issues in his limited frames. Carlos Carrasco isn't the most reliable Mets pitcher, but he's at his best at home, with his 3.52 ERA and .270 allowed batting average. The Mets need this game to stay in the division race. The Mets should put up offense here and get the victory.
Game 2 Pick: The Washington Nationals are 9-22 in the last 31 games Paolo Espino has pitched for them. Taijuan Walker is respectable enough with his 3.59 ERA and 1.20 WHIP on the season. Again, the Mets need to get the job done here if they're going to win the NL East. Not great pitching matchups in either, but the Mets have the edge, they're the better team and at home. I'll back the Mets in both games.
