Mets win sixth in a row

New York secured a 4-2 victory Wednesday night at Chicago as a go-ahead Todd Frazier RBI single and a two-run single from Michael Conforto put the Mets ahead in the top of the ninth inning. Conforto finished 1-for-3 with two walks, a run and two RBIs. Frazier was 2-for-4 with a double, a run and an RBI. Wilson Ramos ended the game 1-for-4 with an RBI. Justin Wilson picked up the win in relief as he gave up two hits with one strikeout and one walk over one inning of work. Edwin Diaz notched his 24th save as he allowed one earned run on one hit with three strikeouts and no walks over one inning. Zack Wheeler gets the start tonight as he enters with a 7-6 record, 4.71 ERA and 1.27 WHIP with 137 strikeouts over 124 1/3 innings.

Garcia homers in loss

Chicago lost by a 4-2 count at home Wednesday night versus New York to drop to 46-59 overall and 27-27 at home. Leury Garcia paced the offense as he finished 2-for-5 with a solo home run. Ryan Goins was 2-for-4 with a double plus a walk. Yolmer Sanchez ended the game 1-for-4 plus a walk. Alex Colome took the loss as he gave up three unearned runs on three hits with two strikeouts and one walk over two-thirds of an inning. Dylan Cease gets the start today as he comes in with a 1-3 record, 6.86 ERA and 1.62 ERA with 21 strikeouts over 21 innings.

MLB Betting Trends

New York

The Mets are 5-0 in their last five interleague road games. New York is 1-4 in its last five Thursday games.

Chicago

The White Sox are 1-7 in their last eight home games. Chicago is 0-4 in its last four versus the NL East.

Prediction:

Wheeler has been inconsistent, but the Mets struggle against power righties and he fits that description. Cease is highly hyped, but is still trying to figure out MLB hitters and I expect his struggles to continue today. I like the Mets to win a seventh straight as crazy as that sounds. Maybe they have an NL Wild Card push in them after all?
