The MLB is back in action today as the New York Mets will clash with the San Diego at the Citi Field in New York.
The Padres will give the nod to the 24 years old left-hander Eric Laurer. And the Mets will counter with the 31 years old Jacob deGrom.
San Diego Padres Form
The Padres will give another start to Eric Laurer which will be his 19th one this season. However, the younger pitcher has not celebrated a win in the last 2 months.
Also, the young left-hander has shown his potential several times this season, and he owns a 4.31 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP paired with a 5-7 record in 96 innings pitched on the year.
The Padres have won the first game against the Mets but they need to improve as they have suffered 4 defeats in their last 5 games.
On the offensive side of the game, the Padres score an average of 4.41 runs per game, placing them 24th in the MLB. The San Diego pitching staff holds a 4.60 team ERA, which is the 16th record in the Majors.
New York Mets Form
The Mets will give the nod to Jacob deGrom and this will be his 21st start this season. Moreover, he had some great performances in the last games. Most notably, deGrom had seven shutout innings of three-hit ball against the Giants, leading to a tough-luck no-decision in a 1-0 Mets’ loss.
The Mets are a good team but they will need to improve if they want to get back to winning ways after the defeat in the previous game.
On the offensive side of the game, the Mets score 4.71 runs per game which is the 17th record in the league in scoring. The New York pitching staff is carrying a 4.63 team ERA, positioning them 18th in the Majors. The Mets feature a 24-19 home record.
The Padres managed to win the first game of this series in a convincing way. However, I still think that they are not at the same level as the Mets. Also, New York has the in in-form deGrom as their starter in this game and he has a good record against the Padres. Therefore, I expect a win for the Mets in this game.
