Frazier, Smith homer in loss
New York lost 6-5 in 11 innings Saturday night at Arizona to drop to 28-30 overall and 13-21 on the road. Dominic Smith helped pace the offense as he finished 2-for-5 with a solo home run and two runs scored. Todd Frazier was 1-for-3 with a home run, two walks and two RBIs. Pete Alonso ended the contest 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI. Tyler Bashlor suffered the loss in relief as he gave up one earned run on two hits with no strikeouts and one walk over one-third of an inning. Steven Matz draws the start this afternoon as he enters with a 4-3 record, 3.55 ERA and 1.34 WHIP with 51 strikeouts over 50 2/3 innings.
Locastro wins it in 11 innings
Tim Locastro drove in the game-winning run with a single Saturday night to lead Arizona to a 6-5 home victory over New York in 11 innings. Locastro ended the contest 1-for-1 off the bench with a walk, a run scored and the RBI. Yoshihisa Hirano earned the win in relief as he threw one scoreless inning with no hits allowed, one strikeout and one walk. Adam Jones helped pace the offense as he went 2-for-5 with a home run, a double, two runs and two RBIs. Jarrod Dyson went 2-for-4 with a walk and a run. Ketel Marte ended the game 1-for-5 with a run and an RBI. Merrill Kelly will start today for the Diamondbacks as he enters with a 4-6 record, 4.83 ERA and 1.51 WHIP with 45 with strikeouts over 59 2/3 innings.
MLB Betting Trends
The Mets are 2-6 in their last eight Sunday games. New York is 9-3 in the last 12 Matz starts.
The Diamondbacks are 2-12 in their last 14 Sunday games. Arizona is 1-4 in the last five Kelly starts.
Arizona won in a thriller last night as it rallied back, but that might be a decent reason to fade today. Matz has been reliable in most of his starts for New York this season, whereas Kelly is usually very hittable. I'm going to say New York rebounds from the tough loss to leave town with a win this afternoon.
