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

Jose Quintana Needs to be Good

On the mound for the Mets in Game 1 will be Jose Quintana and he sits with a 3-6 record and an ERA of 3.36. 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

How Many Starters Will Phillies Play

The big question for the Phillies in these two games is how many starters will play. There isn’t a whole lot to play for with a team that is getting ready for the playoffs. There hasn’t been a starter named for the Phillies for either of these games. 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.

Shane’s Free Pick

There are better games to bet and with concerns about who the Phillies will play, I would wait for lineups before betting. In the first game I do think Jose Quintana will have a good start and the Mets will win, maybe their last win of the season. In Game 2 the Phillies will use their bats to find success, even if it’s a weak lineup to get the job done. The Mets will win Game 1 and the Phillies will win Game 2. 

Shane’s Pick Game 1: Mets ML / Game 2: Phillies ML
