The NL East crown is now firmly out of the Mets’ grasp after their dismal post all star break run. They have dropped the first two games of a four-game set with the slumping Giants and will lean on Bartolo Colon Saturday to stop the skid.
- The Mets are 6-11 in the month of August.
- The Giants’ lineup owns a combined .341 average against Bartolo Colon.
- The Mets are now 6.5 games out of a playoff spot.
Bartolo (10-7, 3.38 ERA) is still one opponent shy of earning a win against every team in the MLB after the Mets disappointing effort in his last start against the D-backs. He will, however, look to get the Mets back on track today with his 6-4 record on the road. Colon is pitching is still pitching like a younger, thinner man this season and will be a crucial cog if the Mets hope to stay in the playoff race.
The Giants are trying to exit a skid of their own and will call on recently acquired starter Matt Moore (7-9, 4.14 ERA) to handle the starting duties today. Moore got crushed in his last outing but has lasted exactly six innings in all of his three San Francisco starts so far.
The Mets are in serious trouble with their offense struggling and are in danger of getting swept out of AT&T Park. New York is a tough bet these days so you may want to look for value elsewhere.
