The Cincinnati Reds and New York Mets face off on Friday in an MLB showdown at Citi Field in New York City. 

Is Hunter Greene turning a corner? 

Remember when Hunter Greene was drafted? Many believed he was the next great thing, but so far he hasn’t proven to be that, but there is still time. Hunter Greene sits with a 4-6 record and an ERA of 4.43. In his last start against the St Louis Cardinals he went six innings giving up one hit and one runs. The Reds are averaging 4.72 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.99 runs per game. The offense is ranked 11th in the league while the pitching is ranked 23rd. 

Peterson Needs to be Good

The Mets sit with a 68-78 record overall but they are coming off a big victory on Thursday. The Mets scored 11 runs and the offense is showing some signs of life. On the mound for the Mets will be David Peterson and he sits with a 3-8 record and an ERA of 5.34. In his last start against the Twins he went six innings giving up eight hits and three runs. The Mets are averaging 4.37 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.58 runs per game. The offense is ranked 20th in the league while the pitching is ranked 18th. 

Shane’s Free Pick

Greene is turning a corner, and he’s going to step up in this game. The Mets offense has been inconsistent and he’s going to really lock down in this game. The Mets are going to score only two or three runs here. The Reds are going to score at least five runs here, and that will be enough here. Back the Reds on the money line. 

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