The Mets and Cubs continue their 4 game set that features a rematch of the 2015 NLCS.
New York got a little revenge to start things off as they held off the Cubs 4-3 in the series opener. With 3 games still left in this series, the Mets will need to continue to get quality starts, as they go through the thick of this Cubs rotation.
This high powered Chicago offense has had little problems this year when it comes to timely and clutch hitting.
Chicago ranks third in the MLB in terms of runs per game as they average 5.32.
The Cubs offer one of the deepest lineups that can hit for average and go yard on any occasion. Kris Bryant leads the team with 22 homeruns while leadoff hitter Ben Zobrist continues to be on a tear, hitting .301.
The Cubs send out ace Jake Arrieta here, who continues to have a Cy Young like year. Arrieta brings in a 12-2 record with a 2.10 ERA.
The RH does come in off a start where he did labor a bit. He lasted just 5.0 innings while allowing 5 runs to the Cincinnati Reds in a ND.
Arrieta has won 3 of his last 4 starts.
New York Mets
The New York Mets have dug themselves a bit of a hole in the NL East and now have to step their game up against the best team in baseball over the weekend.
The Mets lead by just 0.5 game in 2nd place and sit 6.0 games back behind the Washington Nationals.
One factor that has gone into the Mets going cold has been their offense. Nobody has stepped up with the exception of Yoenis Cespedes.
Cespedes leads the team in just about every offensive category. The OF leads the Mets in homeruns (19), batting average (.288), and OPS (.919).
They’ll send out Bartolo Colon here on Saturday, who is 6-4 on the season with a very good ERA of just 2.86.
Colon has not allowed more than 3 runs in a start since 5/12. Since 5/23, Colon has not given up more than 2 runs in an outing.
