The New York Mets will look for a much needed win this Wednesday, as they take on the Miami Marlins at loanDepot Park in a critical game for the visitors.
New York Mets
The Mets are 4-7 in their last 11 games and that has allowed the teams behind them in the NL East to make up plenty of ground, as their lead is only 2.5 games, and they only still hold the division lead because nobody behind them has been able to get hot.
This offense has been the main culprit this year, as they have had an elite pitching staff all year long, and they have been especially bad recently only scoring 15 runs in their last 5 games. They now rank 29th in terms of total runs scored with 400 and a pretty brutal slugging percentage of just .385.
New York has just recently got a big boost to their pitching staff, as Carlos Carrasco finally was able to recover from a spring training hamstring injury and made an immediate impact for this ball club. He will once again get the call for this one and based on how Carrasco looked since coming back from that injury I can certainly see him roll through this Miami Marlins batting lineup and put the Mets in a great spot to win this game.
The Marlins can thank Lewis Brinson for hitting a grand slam and allowing the Marlins to pick up the win over this Mets team during the first game of this series and they have been scrappy enough this season to consistently pull off upset wins against some of the better teams in baseball.
This Miami roster is set up very much the same as Wednesday’s opponent, as they have a top notch pitching staff, but really struggle to hit the ball, as they have only managed to score 415 runs this season which clearly has not been enough to support this pitching staff.
Zach Thompson has had a very good season, and he will once again head to the mound bringing with him a 2.33 ERA and he really is set up for success here pitching at home and going up against this Mets batting lineup.

Free New York Mets vs. Miami Marlins MLB Prediction:
I do not have a ton of faith in this Mets batting lineup even with the trade deadline pickups, and things are made even tougher on them here against Zach Thompson who has been great so far. It is also tough to back the Marlins to score many runs especially against Carlos Carrasco who comes in here fresh and off the back of some nice performances, so I certainly can see this one going under the 7.5 run total.
