New York Mets
The New York Mets come into this game as pretty heavy favorites, and deservedly so, as they have surprised a lot of people leading their division and coming in here with a 47-40 record and it will be interesting to see whether or not they can keep this run going to a division win or a playoff berth.
The Mets have leaned on their pitching staff all year, and they have got the job done no doubt, but there have been some signs of life out of this batting unit with guys like Alonso and Dominic Smith coming on nicely.
The path to this Mets team being really good and possibly competing for a title, is if their pitching keeps doing what they are doing, and a guy like Francisco Lindor can get back to elite levels which can help this batting lineup put up the runs necessary to support the starters.
New York cannot take this game lightly, however, as they did just drop a game to this Pirates team last night by a score of 4-1 and if they want to stay on top of the division they will need to consistently pick up wins against teams like the Pirates.
The Pirates on the other hand are in full rebuild mode and are looking to trade away their better players this trade deadline for prospects and draft picks and you cannot really blame them, as their will be plenty of teams willing to give up a lot to get their hands on some of the better hitters in this batting lineup.
Wil Crowe will get the call to the hill for Pittsburgh here and although he is not an elite level pitcher, he has been having respectable outings recently only giving up 2 earned runs in each of his last two outings.
