New York Mets
The Mets have been a very disappointing team this year. Once again, they will miss the playoffs.
For as long as this team was in the first place, lots of people thought they had a chance to make it to October. However, the Mets just played very badly in the second half of the year.
New York beat the Marlins by a score of 12-3 on Thursday. The Mets took 3 games out of 4 in that series. In those games, they scored 21 runs and allowed 9 runs.
Rich Hill went 5 innings and allowed 2 earned runs on Thursday.
Tylor Megill is 3-6 with an ERA of 4.78. His last start was against the Brewers where he went 4 innings and allowed 4 earned runs. Milwaukee won that game 5-1.
The pitching has been the best part of this team. They have an ERA of 3.87, which is the 8th best in baseball.
All year long, this team has struggled to score runs. They are only scoring 3.94 runs per game, which is the 27th best in the game.
New York has hit 173 home runs which is 25th best in the game.
There was a time this year when the Braves were simply not playing well. It has been fun to watch them turn around their season.
For the fourth straight year, they have won the National League East. They have once again shown they are the best team in that division.
Atlanta completed the sweep of the Phillies with a 5-3 win on Thursday. In those games, the Braves scored 14 runs and allowed 6 runs.
Ian Anderson went 6 innings and allowed 2 earned runs on Thursday.
Huascar Ynoa is 4-5 with an ERA of 3.98. His last start was against the Padres where he went 4.2 innings and allowed 7 earned runs. Atlanta won that game 10-8.
The pitching for this team has been much better. Both the starters and the bullpen got better as the year went on. The club holds an ERA of 3.90, which is the 9th best in the sport.
Their offense is a very dangerous one. Overall, the team is scoring 4.91 runs per game which is the 8th best in the game.
Atlanta has hit 234 home runs, which is 3rd best in the MLB.

New York Mets vs. Atlanta Braves MLB Prediction:
Even though the Braves have the division clinched, I do not just see them giving in. I look for them to be sharp in this one.
Atlanta is the much better team here and they really should not be losing to the Mets. I expect them to take care of business here.
Huascar Ynoa was very bad in his last start, but that was against a tough lineup. I expect him to be better on Friday against a weak New York lineup.
I like Atlanta as home favorites in this one.
