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.
MLB Betting Trends
The under is 8-2-1 in the last 11 Mets games overall. New York is 8-17 in its last 25 Sunday games.
The Diamondbacks are 7-2 in their last nine games overall. The over is 6-2-2 in the last 10 meetings in Arizona.
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.
