Matz stellar in win

New York lefty Steven Matz played a major role in helping his squad to a 5-1 road win at the D-backs Saturday night as he allowed one earned run on six hits with three strikeouts and a walk over 6 2/3 innings. He dropped his ERA to 3.31. Michael Conforto had a big night at the plate as he finished 2-for-4 with a home run, a double and four RBIs. Brandon Nimmo and Devin Mesoraco both went 2-for-4 and scored a run.

Ahmed scores lone run

Arizona shortstop Nick Ahmed was the only player on the home team with multiple hits as he went 2-for-4 with a run in the loss to the Mets. Paul Goldschmidt had the RBI, which cut the D-backs' deficit to 5-1 in the sixth inning. Patrick Corbin suffered the loss as he allowed five earned runs on eight hits with seven strikeouts and two walks over six innings.

Zack Wheeler (2-5, 4.98 ERA) draws the start today for New York, while the Diamondbacks counter with Clay Buchholz (1-1, 3.21).

MLB Betting Trends

New York

The under is 8-2-1 in the last 11 Mets games overall. New York is 8-17 in its last 25 Sunday games.

Arizona

The Diamondbacks are 7-2 in their last nine games overall. The over is 6-2-2 in the last 10 meetings in Arizona.

Prediction:

I don't trust either of these pitchers to shut the door. Wheeler has been inconsistent and faces a very good Arizona offense that wants to rebound after an off night. Buchholz looked great for a couple starts with Arizona, but imploded his last time out. I think the over is the safest play here as I expect some fireworks.
