In yesterday’s game the Padres beat the Mets 5-3.
New York Mets
The Mets rank 11th in the Majors in runs scored, but their pitching has been their strength ranking 3rd in team ERA.
The main reason the Mets are the road favorite is they have Noah Syndergaard (2-1 2.51 ERA) on the hill. Still, in his last outing he was not sharp giving up 4 earned runs in 5 innings in a 6-1 loss to the San Francisco Giants. Before that start the Mets had won his previous 2 starts.
Last season Syndergaard faced the Padres twice and while he had a great start at home he was tagged up for seven runs in only 4 innings of work in a 7-2 Mets loss.
The Mets are 5-1 in Syndergaard’s last 6 road starts.
The Mets are 8-4 this season on the road and they have the 2nd fewest road losses in the NL.
San Diego Padres
The Padres only rank 22nd in the Majors in runs scored and 20th in team ERA. While their offense has not been lighting it up as of late they have only given up a total of 10 runs in their last 5 games.
Drew Pomeranz (2-3 2.48 ERA) gets the starting nod for the Padres tonight and in his last outing he only gave up 1 earned run in 7 innings, but got no support in a 1-0 loss to the L.A. Dodgers. The Padres have lost his last 2 starts.
In 4 of 5 starts this season Pomeranz has given up 3 or fewer runs, but he has not gotten much help from the offense.
Pomeranz has not faced the Mets since the 2012 season when he was with the Colorado Rockies.
Since losing 5 in a row San Diego is 5-2 in their last 7 games.
This season the Padres are 7-9 at home.
