San Diego Padres vs New York Mets Prediction

I’ll just stay with the Padres. Cease had a couple of spotty starts going early this month with six earned in 11.1 innings total for an 0-1 record. In his last start however, Cease posted a victory with 6.0 innings, one earned run, eight hits and a walk. As for Megill, he’s given up seven earned over his last 9.2 innings.

On Saturday the Padres couldn’t do much of anything on offense and got burned by a great evening from New York’s JD Martinez (three hits; two homers; two walks; three RBI). San Diego needs to get the bats going in the finale.
