Arizona Diamondbacks vs. New York Mets 5/19/18, Prediction & Odds

The Arizona Diamondbacks could not muster much offense at all in their series opener at the New York Mets. Will that change today to help push the total toward the over?

deGrom ties career-high in K's

New York Mets starter Jacob deGrom was fantastic Friday night as he struck out 13 batters over seven innings, allowing one earned run on six hits in the 3-1 victory. Michael Conforto backed the win with a stellar night at the plate, going a perfect 4-for-4 with two RBIs. Wilmer Flores finished 1-for-3 with a double, a run, an RBI and a walk. Brandon Nimmo and Asdrubal Cabrera both scored a run. Jeurys Familia struck out the side in the ninth inning to pick up his 12th save. 

Starting today for the Mets will be Steven Matz (1-3, 3.86 ERA).

Descalso has pair of hits

Arizona only managed six hits in the loss to New York Friday night, but two of those came off the bat of second baseman Daniel Descalso as he registered a single and a double in four at-bats. Steven Souza was 1-for-3 and scored the lone Diamondbacks run. Jake Lamb had a single and had the only RBI. Zack Godley allowed three runs (one earned) on four hits with six strikeouts and four walks over six innings to take the loss.

Patrick Corbin (4-1, 2.53 ERA) will start tonight for the D-Backs.

Prediction:

Corbin has slowed down a bit since his fantastic start to the season, but is still proving very effective. With Matz a bit more inconsistent, I like Arizona to find its offense in this game to back a strong start from Corbin in a win by the road favorites.
