Alonso sets rookie HR record
New York claimed a 3-0 shutout win at home Saturday over Atlanta to improve to 85-76 overall and 47-33 at home. Pete Alonso was 1-for-3 as he led the Mets offense with a solo home run, his 53rd of the season to set a new MLB rookie record. Rene Rivera finished 1-for-3 with a home run and two RBIs. Todd Frazier ended the game 1-for-3 with a run scored. Steven Matz picked up the win as he threw six shutout innings with two hits allowed, seven strikeouts and five walks.

MLB Betting Trends
The Braves are 37-15 in their last 52 Sunday games. Atlanta is 1-4 in its last five games overall.
The Mets are 4-1 in their last five games overall. New York is 17-7 in the last 24 Syndergaard Sunday starts.
The Braves went through the motions yesterday and might not throw out a regular lineup today. While Syndergaard hasn't been that good his last several starts, he's definitely capable of mowing down an unfocused and underwhelming lineup. Atlanta has bigger fish to fry. I'm taking the Mets here to end their season on a high note.
