Judge homers in All-Star Game

Yankees slugger Aaron Judge hit a home run off Nationals starter Max Scherzer in Tuesday's All-Star Game, helping the American League to an 8-6 win in 10 innings. Judge also drew a walk in three plate appearances. Judge batted .276 with 25 home runs and 60 RBIs plus a .392 on-base percentage before the break. Yankees pitcher Luis Severino threw a scoreless inning in the game, giving up one hit while striking out two.

deGrom allows HR in inning of work

Mets starting pitcher Jacob deGrom surrendered a solo home run in an inning of work in the All-Star Game, giving up long ball to Angels superstar  Mike Trout. A sensational first half saw deGrom post a 1.68 ERA and 0.97 WHIP with 149 strikeouts in 123 1/3 innings, but he only has a 5-4 record due to a lack of run support.

Syndergaard (5-1, 2.97 ERA) will make his second start since returning from the DL for the Mets, while Domingo German (2-5, 5.49) gets the call for the Yankees.

MLB Betting Trends

New York Mets

The Mets are 2-6 in their last eight road games. The Mets are also 2-6 in their last eight Friday games.

New York Yankees

The over is 6-2-1 in the last nine meetings at the Yankees. The under is 8-1 in the last nine Yankees games.

Prediction:

While the Yankees are the much better team here, the Mets have the better pitcher going. Syndergaard wasn't great in his first start back, but still got out of some jams and only allowed one earned run in five innings. He should be better tonight with some rust shaken off. German has struggled as of late and if the Mets can provide some run support, there is a great shot at an upset here.
