The Philadelphia Phillies and New York Mets face off on Friday in an MLB showdown at Citi Field. 

Mets Offense Needs to Get Going

The Mets offense has been a bit of a struggle heading into this game and that is going to need to change here. On Wednesday the Mets scored only two runs and that led to the two run defeat. The Mets are averaging 4.43 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.51 runs per game. The offense is ranked 18th while the pitching is ranked 17th. On the mound for the Mets is Tylor Megill who sits with an 8-8 record and an ERA of 4.92. 

Walker Needs to be Good

On the mound for the Phillies will be Taijuan Walker and he sits with a 15-5 record and an ERA of 4.35. In his last start against the Mets he went six innings giving up five hits and two runs. The Phillies are averaging 4.91 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.39 runs per game. The offense is ranked 8th while the pitching is ranked 13th. In this game if Walker is good, the Mets are going to need to be good here. 

Shane’s Free Pick

Walker is going to have a good start here and that is going to be the difference here. The Phillies bats are going to have no issue running up the score against Megill and that is going to be the difference here. Look for the Phillies to score at least seven runs here and that will be enough for Philadelphia to get the job done. Back the Phillies on the money line.
