San Diego Padres vs New York Mets Prediction

I’ll stick with the Padres. Waldron is on a nice run these days. Over his last three starts combined Waldron is 2-0 with just two earned runs in 20.1 innings on 11 hits and two walks. As for Manaea, he’s struggled a bit over his last pair with 11 earned runs in 9.1 frames for an 0-2 record.

The Padres are scoring well lately. They managed 15 runs over three games in the A’s sweep, and they’ve hit three or more runs in seven straight games overall. I like San Diego to keep it rolling Friday.
