Arizona Diamondbacks Recap

The Arizona Diamondbacks come into this game looking to earn the series split with the Mets after getting on the board in the set with a 10-5 win over New York on Saturday. The potential split would be a step in the right direction after series losses to the Rangers and Marlins in the last week and a half.

Diamondbacks Finally Putting It Together

Ketel Marte leads the Diamondbacks with 60 hits in addition to a .261 batting average and 13 doubles with 10 home runs and 29 RBIs while Lourdes Gurriel Jr. also has 6 home runs and 31 RBIs as well this season. Corbin Carroll has a team-high 9 stolen bases while Eugenio Suarez has a team-high 64 strikeouts this season. Christian Walker also has 12 home runs with a team-high 38 RBIs of his own this season.

Why the Arizona Diamondbacks will win

  • The Mets have lost eight of their last nine day games against NL West opponents that held a losing record.
  • The Diamondbacks have won four of their last five day games against National League opponents.
  • The Mets have failed to cover the run line in eight of their last nine day games against NL West opponents that held a losing record.
  • The Diamondbacks have covered the run line in five of their last six road games against National League opponents that held a losing record.

New York Mets Recap

The New York Mets will try to win the series after taking their first loss of the series in Saturday’s defeat. The series win for the Mets would help the Mets get back on track after a rough month of May that included a sweep against the Dodgers and a series loss to the Giants in the last week and a half.

Mets Still Hitting Fairly Well

Starling Marte leads the Mets with 54 hits and a .267 batting average while Pete Alonso has a team-high 13 home runs and 29 RBIs with 14 doubles as well. Francisco Lindor has 13 doubles of his own with 9 home runs and 29 RBIs while Marte also has a team-high 9 stolen bases. Brandon Nimmo has a team-high 29 RBIs and 59 strikeouts as well this season.

Why the New York Mets will win

  • The Diamondbacks have lost each of their last nine Sunday games as favorites against NL East opponents.
  • The Mets have won each of their last four games as underdogs against the Diamondbacks.
  • The Diamondbacks have failed to cover the run line in each of their last seven games as favorites against National League opponents.
  • The Mets have covered the run line in each of their last seven games as underdogs against the Diamondbacks.
  • The Mets have won the first inning in four of their last six games as underdogs against the Diamondbacks.

Diamondbacks vs. Mets Prediction

I’m on the Mets here. I just don’t trust Brandon Pfaadt if I’m being 100% honest, and the Mets are starting to hit the ball a bit better in recent starts. One good game isn’t going to make me forget Arizona’s struggles in the month of May against lefties and Jose Quintana’s actually pitched well in some of his recent outings. I’ll side with the Mets in this one.
