San Diego Padres vs New York Mets Prediction 

New York was able to get the win on Friday night in game one of this series and they have played much better over their last ten games, but they are still way back in the NL East standings. San Diego is 19-15 on the road this year and they are also playing very well right now. I know we saw a very low scoring game on Friday, but I think we are going to see quite a few runs here. Quintana is a below average pitcher for the Mets and I think Mazur is going to struggle once again here. My San Diego Padres vs New York Mets prediction is for this game to go over the total.
