The New York Mets will play the Miami Marlins in Game 2 of their series on Friday night at loanDepot park in Miami, Florida.
The New York Mets are 1-0 this season after they defeated the Marlins by a score of 5-3 in their first game. New York was able to lead for most of this game, but needed a two run double in the seventh inning to get the win. Brandon Nimmo led the way for the Mets on offense by going 1-3 with three RBI’s, one run, and a walk. Max Scherzer pitched six strong innings with six strikeouts, but did allow three earned runs. The projected starting pitcher for New York on Friday is David Peterson, who was 7-5 with a 3.83 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP last year.
The Miami Marlins are 0-1 this season after they dropped their home opener on Thursday. Miami was not able to generate much offense in this game and only scored during the sixth inning. Garrett Cooper was most of the offense for Miami, by going 1-4 with a two run homer in the sixth inning. Sandy Alcantara pitched 5.2 innings with four walks, but only allowed two earned runs in the game. The projected starting pitcher for Miami on Friday is Jesus Luzardo, who was 4-7 with a 3.32 ERA and a 1.04 WHIP last season.
New York is 1-4 in their last 5 road games and 5-2 in their last 7 game two’s of a series. The over is 7-1 in New York’s last 8 Friday games. Miami is 15-36 in their last 51 Friday games and 7-20 in their last 27 game two’s of a series. The under is 5-1-1 in Miami’s last 7 games. New York is 7-2 in these two teams last 9 head to head meetings.
These two teams played a very exciting game on Thursday, with two great pitchers on the mound. We don’t have quite the same pitching matchup in this game, but both starters did have solid seasons last year. I think we are going to see another low scoring game here, but I like Miami to get their first win of the season in this matchup.
