Flores drives in game-winner

Mets first baseman Wilmer Flores drew the start Saturday and hit third with an opposing left-hander on the mound. While he didn't do anything at the plate over the first eight innings, his game-winning RBI single in the bottom of the ninth was the difference in a 5-4 victory. The contest had previously been tied in the bottom of the eighth when Devin Mesoraco hit a two-run home run to tie it at 4-4. Jeurys Familia earned the win in relief.

Noah Syndergaard (3-1, 3.14 ERA) will start for New York today.

Goldschmidt, Murphy homer in loss

Despite the defeat, D-Backs first baseman Paul Goldschmidt and catcher John Ryan Murphy each hit a home run. It was Goldschmidt's fifth home run of the season, a solo shot in the fourth inning. Murphy hit a two-run homer in the fourth and finished 2-for-4 with three RBIs. Chris Owings had a pair of hits in the contest and stole two bases. Andrew Chafin suffered the loss in relief.

Veteran Clay Buchholz will make his Arizona debut this afternoon.

MLB Betting Trends

Arizona

The Diamondbacks are 1-9 in their last 10 games overall. Arizona is 11-4 in the last 15 meetings.

New York 

The Mets are 6-15 in their last 21 Sunday games. New York is 3-7 in its last 10 home games.

Prediction: 

I can't trust Buchholz in his first start here when Syndergaard gets to face a D-Backs squad struggling since the injury to outfielder A.J. Pollock. Go with the Mets here and eat the juice.
