New York Mets
After a slow start to the season the New York Mets have climbed into the playoff race. The Mets are currently 2.5 games behind the Chicago Cubs for the second NL Wild Card spot. The team has used some hot hitting from Jeff McNeil, Pete Alonso, and Amed Rosario. McNeil is a scoring .332 on the season to go along with 15 homers. Alonso has been one of the best rookies in baseball as he has 39 homers and 91 RBIs. Rosario has been solid self with a .290 average and 12 homers. If the Mets want to make a playoff run Michael Conforto must get hot. Conforto is hitting .258 with 25 homers.
On the mound for the New York Mets is Zack Wheeler. Wheeler is 9-7 on the season with a 4.36 ERA. In his last start he was tagged for five runs on 12 hits in five innings against Atlanta.
Kansas City Royals
The Royals have been a hot mess all season. They are currently 44-78 and 30 games behind first place Minnesota. Yes, you read that right. They have had issues everywhere. As a team they are second last in the American League in runs (525), and they are hitting .245 as a team. There hasn’t been many bright spots on this team but Jorge Soler and Whit Merrifield have played well. Soler has provided the power with 35 homers and 87 RBIs. Merrifield is hitting .303 with 14 homers and 16 stolen bases so far.
The Royals will call on Glenn Sparkman in the series finale. Sparkman has been far from a spark this season. On the season he is 3-8 with a 5.45 ERA. Sparkman had one of his best outings of the season his last time out. He gave up one run in six innings against St. Louis.
Free New York Mets vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction: Mets RL
I expect a hot Mets team to come out and make a big statement. The Mets are the superior team in nearly every aspect and I expect it to show. Wheeler should have a bounce back outing against a mediocre lineup.

Sparkman will be tagged in the first few innings.
