The New York Mets are not very good when it comes to the whole hitting the ball thing. The Mets are ranked 28th in runs scored this season and 29th in batting average. Though this may not be a good sign for fans of the club, it has made them a fantastic UNDER play with 10 of their past 11 contests failing to top the closing total. The Mets will close out their three-game series with the Miami Marlins Sunday.
- Steven Matz is 0-2 with a 7.07 ERA in three career starts against the Marlins.
- The Marlins are 9-1 against the runline in their past 10 games at home.
- The Mets are 6-3 in their past nine games against the Marlins.
After a great start to the season, Steven Matz has hit the skids in a big way over the past two months. The Stony Brook, New York native is 0-5 with a 4.73 ERA in his past 10 starts with the Mets going just 3-7 in those games.
Jose Urena put on a good enough performance in his first start of the season to get a second for the Marlins. Urena last 5.2 innings while only surrendering one run against the Philadelphia Phillies last Tuesday.
