New York Mets Recap

The New York Mets come into this one looking to build on their 7-6 win in Tuesday’s matchup, pushing for the sweep in Wednesday’s finale to add to their sweep over the San Diego Padres from this past weekend.

Mets Rolling Offensively

Starling Marte has 66 hits and a .280 batting average while Pete Alonso has a team-high 15 home runs and 40 RBIs with 18 doubles as well. Francisco Lindor has 18 doubles of his own with 12 home runs and 37 RBIs along with 11 stolen bases while Marte also has a team-high 12 stolen bases. Brandon Nimmo has 40 RBIs and 74 strikeouts as well this season.

The series loss for the Rangers gives them back-to-back series losses and puts Texas at risk of back-to-back series sweeps after being swept by the Mariners this past weekend.

New York Mets vs Texas Rangers Prediction

I’m going to stick with the Mets here. The Mets just keep finding ways to deliver and get the job done in this series and I think they do it again here. Heaney is one of those pitchers I’ve made money with by blindly fading this season, as the Rangers just can’t get over the hump with him on the mound and the Mets are crushing lefties right now. The Mets are also a lot stronger out of the bullpen lately as well, so I’ll side with the Mets.
