This NL matchup includes two teams that seem to be falling out of complete playoff contention.
The Arizona Diamondbacks seem to be all but done here in August; they are currently 18 games back in the division.
The New York Mets made a move for Jay Bruce at the deadline, but they are still struggling at 9 games behind the Nationals.
The Arizona Diamondbacks lineup has been up and down for most of this season. They are led by Jean Segura.
Segura is hitting .309 on the season with 24 doubles and has knocked in 44 runs this year. Paul Goldschmidt is hitting .293 with 42 extra base hits and 70 RBIs.
Jake Lamb is hitting .287 on the season with 24 home runs and a team leading 72 RBIs. This D’Backs lineup will look to turn things around heading into the latter have of the season.
The Diamondbacks have their ace Zack Grienke making his first start coming off of the DL. Grienke is currently 10-3 on the season with a 3.62 E.R.A and 91 strikeouts.
Grienke last appeared on June 28th where he got a no decision in a short outing then leaving the game with an injury. He pitched in only 2 innings where he gave up 2 earned runs on 4 hits.
Grienke walked 0 batters and struck out 2 before leaving the game. He will look to make a hot comeback on Tuesday.
New York Mets
The New York Mets lineup has been struggling for much of the season. They are led by Yoenis Cespedes on the season with a .289 batting average to go along with 22 home runs and 59 RBIs.
Neil Walker was a big pickup in the offseason; he is currently hitting .268 on the year with 19 home runs and 49 RBIs. Asdrubal Cabrera is having a breakout year for his age. Cabrera is hitting .255 with 19 doubles and 33 RBIs.
The Mets will have their hands full with Grienke on the bump.
The Mets have Steven Matz on the mound Tuesday night. He hasn’t been able to get rolling within the season so far.
Matz is currently 8-8 on the season with a 3.63 E.R.A. and 112 strikeouts. He last received a loss in the Subway Series against the Yankees.
He pitched in 6 innings where he gave up 6 earned runs on 6 hits.
Matz walked 1 batter in the loss and put 6 down on strikeouts. He looks to bounce back quickly against the D’Backs.

Free Arizona Diamondbacks vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
This game includes two teams on the decline here in the second half of the season. Both of these teams were expected to play well this season, and neither has really panned out.
I’m taking the Diamondbacks on the road in this one Tuesday. I see Grienke causing some major problems for the Mets lineup that has been struggling more and more weekly.
I see the D’Backs lineup to do just enough to pull this one out on the road.
