The New York Mets and San Francisco Giants meet for game 3 of their latest series on Wednesday at 3:45 PM ET.
San Francisco used power hitting Monday to cover the run line in a 7-5 win over NYM.
New York Mets
New York has dropped four straight contests, and eight of 11 to fall 3.5 games behind NL East leader Atlanta. The pitching that carried NYM all year is suddenly missing in action as the Mets have allowed 29 runs during their losing streak.
New York couldn’t contain SFG bats Monday during a 7-5 setback where the Giants collected 13 hits and three home runs.
Being swept by the Los Angeles Dodgers, and then losing to San Francisco isn’t a terrible indictment as those teams rank 1-2 in total MLB wins, however NYM hasn’t gelled since the All Star break. The Mets are 12-18 during the season’s second half.
Rookie Tylor Megill seeks a little beginner’s luck Wednesday during his first career start vs. NYM. The 6’7 righty has towering mound presence, but is 1-2 with a 3.42 ERA in his young MLB life. New York has lost Megill’s last three starts, including an Aug. 13 effort vs. LAD where Megill allowed three runs through five innings.
San Francisco Giants
The Giants are still the hottest team in baseball. Standing four games ahead of the defending World Series champs for NL West honors, San Francisco is 8-2 in its last ten games. Those wins come against NYM, Colorado, Arizona and Milwaukee.
Approaching the last fourth of their winding calendar, it would take a massive collapse for San Francisco to not gain playoff position. However, with the Dodgers lurking, and with SFG still a surprise story, expect top effort each night from this bunch.
Anthony DeSclafani continues his career year while posting an 11-5 mark and 3.29 ERA. San Francisco is 16-7 when DeSclafani starts, including four wins in his last six openers.
Having a pitcher on mound today with DeSclafani’s momentum should only increase the chances of another SFG run line win. In his last appearance, 31-year-old DeSclafani tossed five innings of two-run ball to help SFG down Colorado 5-4.

New York Mets vs. San Francisco Giants MLB Prediction:
Given San Francisco’s home dominance coupled with New York’s tailspin, I pick the Giants to win today fairly comfortably.
The Mets average just 3.80 runs, and offer rookie pitching to an SFG group averaging 4.50 runs behind hot pitching.
With every matchup factor heavily on their side, take San Francisco with the run line win here.
