The Mets have one more last ditch effort to try and get back into the postseason race as the last place Marlins visit for a three game series. New York remains 6.5 out of the wild card race, but also have four teams to jump.
The Marlins come in having won four of their last five, albeit all at home. Miami is just 14-38 in their last 52 road games, and have also dropped 17 of their last 24 at Citi Field. The Marlins also haven’t named a starting pitcher for Tuesday’s contest.
The Marlins went on a nice little run at home over the past week. Miami took two out of three from the Nationals, and then also won their three game series with the Reds over the weekend which is impressive considering Cincinnati is trying to hold onto the #2 wild card spot.
Both of those series wins were in South Beach though, and the Marlins were swept by the Reds in four games the last time they went on the road. In fact being away from Miami has been rare for the team the past couple weeks as 12 of their last 15 games have been at home.
Do the Marlins have any value going away in this one (once the line is released)? Bryan De La Cruz has been hot with hits in 10 of his last 18 ABs, but Miami has hit just 5 HRs as a team over the past week.
Don Mattingly is yet to name a starter for this one, but the Marlins do know that they’ll face Trevor Williams. Miami doesn’t have a ton of experience against the right-hander, going just 5-22 as a team (.227).
New York Mets
The Mets look for a third straight win when the Marlins come to town on Tuesday night. New York took two from Washington over the weekend, and had Monday off to try and recharge their batteries.
The big question for New York though is if the damage has already been done? The Mets had dropped 12 of their previous 14 before taking a couple from the Nationals, and although still in the hunt for the postseason they have a lot of work to do.
There are also some distractions surrounding the Mets, who found themselves in the news on Monday despite having the day off. Javy Baez caught heat for giving a ‘thumbs down’ to the fans that have been booing him and the team lately. Will NY even have an advantage being at home here?
The Mets offense has scored 14 runs the last two games, and could very well be facing either a call-up or a bullpen day from the Marlins. New York had scored 2 runs or less in 6 of 8 games prior.

Free Miami Marlins vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
The Marlins could have some value in this one if we knew who their pitcher was. At the same time, it’s still hard to bank on the Mets because they’ve been a pretty hard watch over the past 2-3 weeks. The NY offense has looked good the last two games, and we should see some hitting on Tuesday night.
