Top half of D-backs order dominates

Arizona's offense churned out 12 hits Friday night in a 7-3 home win over the Mets, with 11 of those hits coming from the top five spots in the order. Jon Jay ended the game 3-for-5 with a triple, two runs and an RBI. Paul Goldschmidt was 3-for-5 with a home run and two runs. David Peralta went 2-for-3 with a walk and a run. Daniel Descalso finished 2-for-3 with a home run, a walk and three RBI. Zack Godley allowed two earned runs on five hits with eight strikeouts and three walks over 6 2/3 innings to earn the save. Brad Boxberger picked up his 16th save.

Smith homers in defeat

Mets first baseman Dominic Smith hit his first home run of the season in the loss to Arizona last night. He also doubled in four at-bats and is now batting .308. Todd Frazier and Wilmer Flores drove in the other two runs with an RBI double each. Seth Lugo suffered the loss as he surrendered five earned runs on eight hits with seven strikeouts and one walk over five innings.

Steven Matz (2-4, 3.53 ERA) will start today for New York, while Arizona counters with Patrick Corbin (6-2, 3.21)

MLB Betting Trends

New York

The Mets are 1-7 in their last eight Saturday games. The under is 7-2-1 in the last 10 Mets game overall.

Arizona

The D-backs are 7-1 in their last eight overall. The over is 6-1-2 in the last nine meetings in Arizona.

Prediction:

Arizona is the much better team as we all know and Corbin is having a fantastic season. With the New York offense struggling so much, I can't see how much changes here from other recent Mets results. Consider the runline like I am doing.
