The New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies face off on Thursday in an MLB showdown at Citizens Bank Park. 

Mets Offense Continues to be Inconsistent

The Mets offense continues to be inconsistent heading into this game, and in this game they need to find a way to get the offense going here. The Mets are averaging 4.39 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.52 runs per game. The offense is ranked 20th in the league while the pitching is ranked 18th. On the mound for the Mets will be David Peterson who sits with a 3-8 record and an ERA of 5.22. In his last start against the Reds he went 5.2 innings giving up six hits and three runs. 

Phillies Need a Sweep Here 

At this point the Phillies look like they are going to make the playoffs, but they can’t let the teams hanging around feel like they have a chance. The Phillies are averaging 4.9 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.42 runs per game. The offense is ranked 8th in the league while the pitching is ranked 15th. On the mound for the Phillies will be Ranger Suarez who sits with a 3-6 record and an ERA of 3.80. 

Shane’s Free Pick

I don’t trust the Mets offense, and they are going to really struggle here against Suarez. Suarez sits with an ERA of 3.80. I expect the Phillies offense is going to have no issue running up the score against David Peterson and that is going to be the difference here as the Phillies are going to have no issue getting the job done here. Back the Phillies on the run line to cash here. 

Shane’s Pick Phillies -1.55
