This NL matchup includes two teams that are looking to get a last playoff push here in August.
The New York Mets will look to get things rolling when Yoenis Cespedes returns this weekend from the DL.
The San Francisco Giants look to continue their winning ways in order to outlast the Dodgers in the division.
New York Mets
The New York Mets lineup has been hurting with Cespedes lately, but they acquired Jay Bruce before the trade deadline to make this playoff push. Bruce has struggled since being with the Mets, he is hitting only .185 with 2 home runs and 5 RBIs with his stint in the lineup.
Neil Walker is leading the team in home runs with 22 home runs and 54 RBIs to go along with a .279 average. Curtis Granderson is having another good season hitting .224 with 40 extra base hits and 32 RBIs on the season.
The Mets have Jacob deGrom on the mound Thursday for the Mets. deGrom is currently 7-5 on the season with a 2.30 E.R.A. and 123 strikeouts.
He looked very good in his last start against the San Diego Padres but he came out with a no decision. deGrom threw in 7 innings of work where he gave up 1 earned runs on 3 hits. He also struck out 9 in the start while walking 1.
Look for deGrom to go out on another good start Thursday.
San Francisco Giants
The San Francisco Giants lineup has been up and down for most of this season overall. They are led by the young catcher Buster Posey on another season.
Posey is hitting .290 on the season with 26 doubles and 56 runs batted in. Brandon Belt is having a good season hitting .280 to go with 50 extra base hits and 61 RBIs.
Brandon Crawford leads the Giants in RBIs with 71, he is also hitting .269 on the season with 20 doubles as well. Look for the Giants lineup to struggle versus deGrom.
The Giants have their ace Madison Bumgarner on the mound Thursday night. Mad Bum is currently 11-7 on the season with a 2.11 E.R.A. and 189 strikeouts.
He was very successful in his last start in a win against the Baltimore Orioles. Bumgarner pitched in 7 shutout innings where he only gave up 3 hits.
He struck out 8 batters and walked 3 in the win. He will look to come out and have another quality start.

Free New York Mets vs. San Francisco Giants MLB Prediction:
This game is going to be a pitcher’s duel with both of these lineups not hitting the ball very well on a game to game matter. Look for the score to stay low. I’m taking the Giants overall in the game.
deGrom hasn’t been completely dominate all season and I see the Giants getting the upper hand on him in this one. I see Bumgarner giving the Mets the business early and often here and they won’t be able to do much with Mad Bum.
Look for the Giants lineup to do just enough in this one.
