Mets Preview

The New York Mets are 3-3 this season and have lost two games in a row by scores of 10-0 and 9-0. The New York pitching staff has a 4.76 ERA, a 1.43 WHIP, and a .265 opponent batting average this year. The Mets offense has scored 17 runs with a .207 batting average and a .313 on base percentage. Brandon Nimmo is batting .313 with 0 home runs and three RBI’s for the Mets. The projected starting pitcher for New York is David Peterson, who is 0-1 with a 1.80 ERA and a 1.80 WHIP over 5.0 innings pitched. 

Brewers Preview

The Milwaukee Brewers are 4-1 this season and have won four games in a row. The Milwaukee pitching staff has a 2.05 ERA, a 1.05 WHIP, and a .197 opponent batting average. The Brewers offense has scored 31 runs with a .275 batting average and a .364 on base percentage this season. Brian Anderson is batting .533 with three home runs and 10 RBI’s for the Brewers. The projected starting pitcher for Milwaukee is Corbin Burnes, who is 0-1 with a 7.20 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP over 5.0 innings pitched this year. 


New York is 11-2 in their last 13 Wednesday games and 1-8 in their last 9 games against a team with a winning record. The over is 3-1-1 in New York’s last 5 game three’s of a series. Milwaukee is 6-2 in their last 8 games and 6-13 in their last 19 games against the NL East. The under is 5-0-1 in Milwaukee’s last 6 Wednesday games. New York is 7-20 in these two teams last 27 head to head meetings in Milwaukee. 


Milwaukee has absolutely dominated the first two games of this series and has out scored New York by a total of 19-0. New York will try to bounce back behind David Peterson, who pitched well in his first outing. The Brewers will have Corbin Burnes on the mound, who allowed four earned runs in five innings against the Cubs. I like how Milwaukee has been hitting the ball and I think New York will have a better offensive showing, so I am taking the over here. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
