Chicago Cubs vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
The Mets controlled game 1 yesterday, limiting the Cubs offense and got their own bats to show up in a rare offensive output. Even with the pitching edge on Chicago’s side they were unable to lead at any point.
In this one, Taijaun Walker has had the much better season than Alec Mills. He’s 5-2 with a 2.07 ERA and 1.02 WHIP.
I like the Mets to win another game on Tuesday night.
