The Mets are basically out of the NL East race as they sit 9.5 games back of the Nationals but still have plenty to play for with one of the two NL wild card spots still within reach. New York has been hot lately despite their loss to the Marlins last night and will lean on Thor today to get their series with the Nationals started on the right track.
- The Mets are 7-2 in their last nine games at home.
- The Nationals are 6-1 on the moneyline and the runline in their last 7 games against the Mets.
- The Nationals are 1-4 in their last five games with one day off between games.
Noah Syndergaard has been excellent his last two starts allowing just one run and four hits over 15 innings. The second-year flamethrower has not fared well against the Nationals, however. In three starts against the division rivals this season, Syndergaard is 1-2 with an ERA close to five.
Washington is almost ready to bring Joe Ross back but in the meantime, they will rely on A.J. Cole to fill his spot in the starting rotation. Cole has not been great in his stead, posting an 0-1 record and a 4.97 ERA in two starts.
The Mets’ offense has finally shifted into high gear so the Nats young righty could be in trouble and I really like the Mets’ runline in this one.
