Jacob deGrom struck out eight over seven innings and allowed just two runs in the opener to get the win and move to 7-7 on the year. He also drove in two runs at the plate while Amed Rosario and Jeff McNeil each had two hits and a RBI. In Game 2, a three-home run seventh led the Mets to the win. Pete Alonso, J.D. Davis and Michael Conforto each had solo shots. Conforto finished the game with three RBI. Walker Lockett got the start and threw 4.2 innings while allowing four runs. Jeurys Familia got the win in relief to move to 3-1 while Seth Lugo earned his second save of the year by pitching a perfect eighth and ninth.
MLB Betting Trends
The Marlins 9-22 in their last 31 Tuesday games and 25-60 in their last 85 road games.
The Mets have won six straight Game 3’s of a series and five straight home games against a right-handed starter.
The Mets have won four straight meetings with the Marlins and they have a big pep in their step right now. Wheeler is trending up like the team, as he pitched seven scoreless in his last start. He threw seven strong against Miami earlier this year as well. Yamamoto is trending the other way, allowing 15 runs over his last 14 innings. Miami’s pitching is usually its strength, so if that fails them, the Marlins have little chance to stop this New York momentum.
