The New York Mets will look to put some distance between themselves and the rest of the NL East this Saturday, as they take on the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium.
New York Mets
The Mets have not been able to find their rhythm as of late going 1-4 in their last 5 games, but they do have a batting lineup that is coming around a bit and certainly the best pitcher in the world at this time in Jacob deGrom.
Pete Alonso has proven to be the Mets most important offensive piece with 13 home runs which he has been able to turn into 40 RBI and his average is even decent at .260 which is something he had struggled with in the past.
No doubt, however, this team will rely on it’s pitching staff down the stretch of the season, as they rank 4th in WHIP at 1.16 and towards the top of the league in most of the important pitching statistics.
The Mets will send Marcus Stroman to the hill and that alone should give them a solid chance of picking up this win, as despite the 6-6 record, he has been pitching at a high level entering the game with a nice 2.45 ERA.
New York Yankees
The Yankees on the other hand have struggled quite a bit in recent times and the media in New York is once again on their case which certainly is ramping up the pressure on this squad like it did earlier in the year.
They have scored 19 runs in their last 2 games while going 1-1 over that span so the offense certainly has been doing it’s job in recent times with Aaron Judge being the main guy who has been getting the job done with a .285 average and 18 home runs.
Gerrit Cole will be heading to the hill for the Bronx Bombers here on Saturday, and although he is a big name, he has not been invincible, so this might represent a decent opportunity for the Mets to cause a small upset here.

Free New York Mets vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction:
The New York Mets seem like the way to go here, as the Yankees are not in good form and I have confidence that Stroman can have a nice outing, as his numbers lineup pretty similarly as Cole here.
I am also a little bit worries about the depth that the New York Yankees have this year, as it seems like a lot of the onus for their offense is based off of their top guys.
