The Mets take on the Marlins in Miami in this afternoon affair.
The Mets have lost 4 of their last 5 and are looking to turn things around with Colon on the mound. Colon is 4-3 with an era of 3.39.
The Marlins have been hot and look to continue staying hot. They have won 4 of their last 5 games and are now 4 games over .500.
Nicolino takes the mound with a 2-3 record and a 4.50 era.
New York Mets
The Mets have put up just 9 runs in their last 5 games, so they are really struggling to score at the moment.
Injuries to Wright, Duda and d’Arnaud are really hurting their already struggling offence.
They are now averaging just 3.8 runs per game and are 26th in the MLB.
They are still 3rd in home runs with 73, so at the very least they can get a few runs by hitting the long ball.
The teams batting average is just .230 putting them 28th in the MLB.
Colon still has a winning record at 4-3, but the Mets lost their last start with him on the mound and Wright on the DL.
Colon has pitched well, he only gave up 2 in that game against the Dodgers and in his start prior to that, he gave up just 1 to the Nationals.
One thing the Mets are really good at though is keeping their opponents off the scoreboard, allowing just 3.4 runs per game making them 3rd best in the MLB.
The Marlins are rolling right now, during their current 3 game win streak, they have scored just 10 runs but have limited their opponents to just 6.
Overall, their offence is just as unimpressive as the Mets, they score just 3.9 runs per game and are 25th in the MLB.
The Marlins also don’t hit many long balls, with 46 on the season putting them 27th in the majors.
They hit for average at .269 which is 5th best in the majors. So their approach is slightly different than the Mets, they go base to base.
Unlike the Mets, they have a full squad.
Nicolino has not been very impressive as of late, his era is 4.50 and he has consistently given up 3 or 4 runs in his last 6 starts, usually lasting 5-6 innings.
Although this is not horrible, for the Marlins who don’t score very much, this makes it very difficult for them to win ball games.
Fortunately, he will be up against a Mets team that has been really struggling to put up runs and have a few key injuries.

Free New York Mets vs. Miami Marlins MLB Prediction:
Both teams just don’t score a lot of runs which makes this a defensive battle.
The Mets are going to score even less with a few key injuries but are up against a pitcher that gives up 3 or 4 consistently himself.
This should be a super close game but the Marlins will come out on top by stringing together a few good innings and chipping away.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Marlins ML
This will obviously be very low scoring, Mets will score 2-3. Marlins will score 3-4.
Neither team is scoring much at all on the season and as of late.
