New York Mets
The New York Mets still have hope in catching the Atlanta Braves in the NL East. New York trails Atlanta by seven games but they still face them a total of nine times. The team is in the midst of playing their best baseball as they have won 15 of their last 17 games keeping their season alive. If the Mets can’t catch Atlanta they can win a wild card spot as they only trail by a game. Pete Alonso has had a huge rookie season with 38 homers and 85 RBI’s. Jeff McNeil has been great all year as he is hitting .334 with 15 homers on the season. If the Mets want to win the division the pair must continue to rake the ball.
On the mound for the Mets is lefty Steven Matz. On the season Matz is 7-7 with a 4.49 ERA. Matz has struggled against the Braves this season allowing nine runs in only 13 innings. In his last outing he was terrific allowing two runs in 6.2 innings in a win against Miami.
The Braves have been the second best team in the National League for most of the season. The big reason is their hitting. The team ranks second in the National League in runs (647) trailing the Dodgers by only a run. The lineup is led by Freddie Freeman and Ronald Acuna Jr. Freeman is hitting .309 with 29 homers, while Acuna Jr. has 33 homers, 80 RBI’s, and 28 stolen bases. Acuna Jr. is already a superstar talent in just his second season. Veteran Josh Donaldson has also been solid with 26 homers and 68 RBI’s. This is a lineup that no team in the National League wants to face.
Dallas Keuchel hasn’t been what the Braves hoped he’d be for them so far. In 10 starts, he is 3-5 with a 4.83 ERA. The problem for Keuchel has been the long ball. He has allowed an alarming 11 home runs in only 59.2 innings.

In a matchup featuring two pitchers who have their share of struggles, I will lean with the home team with the better lineup. Alonso and McNeil have been off the charts for the Mets but it won’t be enough.
