New York Mets vs Pittsburgh Pirates Prediction

I’ll stay with the Mets I suppose. Peterson is pitching pretty well these days, logging five earned over his last 16.2 innings on 14 hits and nine walks. Peterson is 1-0 in that trio. As for Falter, he’s 1-2 in his last three starts with seven earned over 16.0 total innings.

On Friday the Mets had a 2-0 lead in the fourth inning but pretty much collapsed after that. New York couldn’t solve Skenes and had a few really bad pitching performances themselves. The Mets need a big bounce-back Saturday, but I think they’re capable.
