The Miami Marlins will play the New York Mets in Game 2 of their series on Saturday afternoon at Citi Field in Queens, New York.

Marlins Preview

The Miami Marlins are 3-5 this season, but they have won two of their last three games. Prior to their loss in Game 1 of this series, Miami won two out of three games against the Twins. The Miami pitching staff has a 4.82 ERA, a 1.30 WHIP, and a .211 opponent batting average this season. The Marlins offense has scored 18 runs with a .229 batting average and a .281 on base percentage. Jorge Soler is batting .233 with three home runs and six RBI’s for the Marlins. The projected starting pitcher for Miami is Trevor Rogers, who is 0-1 with a 6.23 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP over 4.1 innings pitched this year. 

Mets Preview

The New York Mets are 4-4 this season after they won Game 1 of this series by a score of 9-3 on Friday. The New York pitching staff has a 4.90 ERA, a 1.44 WHIP, and a .263 opponent batting average. The Mets offense has scored 32 runs with a .209 batting average and a .330 on base percentage this year. Pete Alonso is batting .226 with four home runs and eight RBI’s for the Mets. The projected starting pitcher for New York is Kodai Senga, who is 1-0 with a 1.69 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP over 5.1 innings pitched this year. 


Miami is 4-10 in their last 14 game two’s of a series and 3-12 in their last 15 Saturday games. The under is 14-4-4 in Miami’s last 22 Saturday games. New York is 13-5 in their last 18 Saturday games and 44-21 in their last 65 home games. The over is 6-2 in New York’s last 8 game two’s of a series. Miami is 1-5 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings. 


New York was able to bounce back with a win after being swept in Milwaukee in their previous series. The Mets will start Kodai Senga, who allowed one run over 5.1 innings against Miami in his first start. The Marlins will turn to Trevor Rogers, who allowed three earned runs over 4.1 innings pitched against the Mets in his first outing. Senga looked very sharp in his first start and I like him to shut down the Marlins once again. Take New York to win this one.
