The battle of New York wraps up today in the Bronx with the Mets looking for a split of the four-game series with the Yankees. They might be sending the right man to the mound to accomplish the feat, as they’re 8-3 in the last 11 games started by Bartolo Colon. The 43-year-old is 5-3 with a 3.43 ERA through 11 road starts so far this season.
- In 8 at-bats vs Eovaldi, Curtis Granderson has a .500 AVG and 2 home runs.
- Yankees hitters have combined for a .340 AVG in 153 at-bats vs Colon.
- The Yankees are 11-3 SU in their last 14 games at home after an ATS win at home.
If the Mets, who enter the game as +118 underdogs, want to stay in the playoff race, they’ll have to turn things around soon as they’ve seen their second half record dip to 8-11. With a three-game series coming up on the road vs the red-hot Tigers, they’ll be desperate for a win.
The Yankees will counter will Nathan Eovaldi who’s won his last two starts at Yankees Stadium. It’s been an up and down season for Eovaldi, but he’s coming off an above average July where he went 3-2 with a 3.60 ERA.
The total for tonight’s game opened at 8.5 runs, which is a number these teams have gone OVER in three of their last four games against each other, while both teams are on five-game OVER streaks.
