New York Mets
The New York Mets have had a very disappointing season, sitting 4th in the National League East division. While they may have the Cy Young winner in the National League (Jacob DeGrom), injuries and offensive struggles have hindered them throughout the entire season.
At this point in the season all they can really hope for is a strong finish and perhaps a chance to eliminate a division rival from playing in the postseason.
Zack Wheeler will make his 29th start of the season and will enter the game with a 11-7 record. He also has an earned run average of 3.23.
In his one start against the Phillies this year, Wheeler went 4.2 innings and allowed 3 runs, but since then has gone 9-1.
The Phillies failed to pick up a game on the Atlanta Braves after losing to Miami 6-4 on Sunday. Now with 14 games remaining, including seven against the Braves, they are going to need a strong performance at home against the under .500 Mets to try and cut into the 6.5 game lead the Braves have over them in the division.
Jake Arrieta will take the mound to kick off a critical three game series going into the last two weeks of the season. Arrieta enters this game with a 10-9 record on the year and an earned run average of 3.66.
Arrieta has struggled so far in September, allowing 7 earned runs in 12.1 innings, so it will be important that his team gives him an early lead to work with.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- NYM are 10-2 in Wheelers last 12 starts.
- PHI are 20-42 in their last 62 Mon. games.
- NYM are 65-31 in the last 96 meetings.
