Mets manage only one hit
New York lost by a count of 2-0 Saturday at Miami to drop to 20-24 overall and 11-16 on the road. Jeff McNeil was 1-for-3 with a double plus a walk, notching a hit in the first inning before the Mets were unable to get anything going the rest of the way. Brandon Nimmo and Todd Frazier each finished 0-for-2 with a walk. Steven Matz suffered the loss as he surrendered two earned runs on five hits over 3 2/3 innings, striking out six and walking two. Syndergaard draws the start today as he enters with a 3-3 record, 4.74 ERA and 1.23 WHIP with 60 strikeouts over 57 innings.
Lopez sensational in victory
Pablo Lopez threw seven one-hit innings Saturday to lead Miami to a 2-0 home victory over New York. Lopez gave up a hit to the first batter of the game before striking out seven and walking two in seven shutout innings the rest of the way. Adam Conley retired the final two batters of the contest for his second save of the season. Jon Berti helped pace the offense as he went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, a walk and two runs scored. Brian Anderson finished 1-for-3 with a walk and an RBI. Jorge Alfaro and Lopez each went 1-for-2 at the dish. Sandy Alcantara will start today as he enters with a 1-4 record, 5.11 ERA and 1.64 WHIP with 28 strikeouts over 44 innings.
MLB Betting Trends
The Mets are 2-8 in their last 10 road games versus a right-handed starter. New York is 1-5 in its last six Sunday games.
The Marlins are 15-36 in their last 51 games overall. Miami is 0-5 in its last five Sunday games.
Syndergaard has been very good in two of his last three starts and should have his way against the Marlins this afternoon. While Miami somehow got to Jacob deGrom two days ago, it is an offense that routinely struggles against quality pitching. As long as Syndergaard continues his recent strong trend, New York should be in a great position to snap the losing skid as Alcantara hasn't been fooling anyone lately.
