New York Mets vs Pittsburgh Pirates Prediction

I’ll probably lean toward the Mets. Probably also not touching it. Manaea is on a decent run recently. Over his last three starts Manaea has four earned runs combined in 17.2 innings on nine hits and 10 walks. He’s 1-0 in that time.

On Saturday the Mets scored three runs in the third inning and never looked back. It was a pretty solid offensive effort, but Brandon Nimmo and Luis Torrens (three RBI) were the highlights at the plate. I think New York can keep it going if Manaea gets them off to a good start.
