The AL East leading New York Mets will continue their 9 game road trip and wrap up their 4 game weekend series against the San Diego Padres Sunday. This will be the 1st meeting between these teams this season but will play again next week in the Big Apple.
In Game 1, Fernando Tatis Jr. returned to the lineup with a two-run homer that slipped out of center fielder Mason Williams’ glove, and the San Diego Padres held off the New York Mets 4-3 on Thursday night.
In Game 3, Jacob deGrom pitched another gem and blanked the Padres 4-0. He pitched 7 innings, allowing only 3 hits and striking out 11 batters.
The series is now 2-1 Padres.
New York Mets
The Mets still lead in the NL East and have picked things up of late, winning 7 of their last 9 games. New York is ahead of the Phillies and Braves by 3.5 games and have taken advantage of a weak NL East. The Mets are currently the only team in the division above .500.
The Mets will be rolling into San Diego with a pitching rotation that’s ranked the third-best in the league in ERA.
They are heavily dependent on their defense to win games with their batting lineup slashing .234/.313/.364. There just hasn’t been enough offensive consistency to hang your hat on their bats.
Things could get even worse when staring down a Padres pitching rotation that still leads the league with the lowest ERA (2.78).
San Diego Padres
The Padres have arguably been the best team in baseball this year, but are currently in the midst of a four game losing streak after falling to the Cubs again Wednesday. The Padres are 2 games behind the Giants for the best record in a stacked NL West, but own the best run differential in the league.
The Padres will start Chris Paddack for the series finale. The right-hander is 2-4 with a 4.24 ERA in 10 starts. He was hammered in his last start, giving up five runs on six hits in 4.1 innings to the Chicago Cubs.
Fernando Tatis leads San Diego with 17 homers and 39 runs driven in. Machado is now second on the team with 33 RBI and is second in homers with 7.

Free New York Mets vs. San Diego Padres MLB Prediction:
This series has been a low scoring grind it out affair which was expected as both teams boast top pitching rotations in the league.
Neither team has scored more than 4 runs in a game so far and the run margin is actually in favor of the Mets 7-6 despite only winning 1 game out of 3.
I expect another low scoring affair in the finale as both pitchers can show flashes of dominance and have been solid all year.
That being said I like the Mets in this one to pull the upset and even the series behind the arm of Stroman and the momentum they’re carrying in from yesterday.
