New York Mets
The once mighty Harvey put in solid work in his first start of the season against the Philadelphia Phillies going five scoreless innings while only giving up one hit to go along with one walk and five strikeouts.
After an injury-plagued career and a sharp decline over the last couple years, it was great to see Harvey come out strong needing 86 pitches to get through five innings, while 22 of those 86 pitches were foul balls.
New York’s lineup hasn’t fared well versus Roark owning a slash line of .215/.299/.385 to go along with 12 extra-base hits and eight RBI. They also have a 16:29 BB/K ratio.
Their lineup sports a solid slash line of .265/.375/.418 in their first six contests, but they haven’t been blowing the ball away with 16 extra-base hits and 28 RBI. They have been disciplined at the plate posting a BB/K ratio of 28:46.
Roark was brilliant in his first start collecting the win against a solid Atlanta lineup in his first start of the season. He cruised through seven innings giving up one run off of four hits while giving up one walk and striking out six.
After having a breakout 2016 season, Roark regressed last year posting a 4.67 ERA and 4.13 FIP, so it was good to see him come out with a bang.
Washington’s lineup has done alright against Harvey slashing .252/.338/.457 while adding 13 extra-base hits and 17 RBI in 138 at-bats. They also own a solid 17:27 BB:K ratio.
Their lineup has gotten off to a decent start slashing .245/.358/.440 to go with 23 extra-base hits and 37 RBI in their first seven contests. Washington has been very disciplined at the plate leading the league with 39 walks compared to their 59 strikeouts.

Free New York Mets vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction: New York survives Washington
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: New York +132
Washington has won their last three contests against New York when Roark pitches, while New York has lost their last three against Washington when Harvey pitches. I expect the roles to flip this outing in what should be a close contest on Sunday Night Baseball.
