Oakland sits eight games under .500 and 20 games back of the AL West division leader, Houston Astros. With no postseason hopes in sight, the Athletics are looking to sell before the trade deadline. One big name that is swirling in trade rumors, is Oakland Ace Sonny Gray.
For this game, the Athletics will send Paul Blackburn (0-1, 1.83 ERA) to the hill against the Mets. Blackburn has made three starts since July 1st, and has yet to face the Mets this season. In his three starts, he has pitched a combined 19.2 innings, allowing 16 hits, five runs (four earned), two home runs, six walks and eight strikeouts.
New York Mets
The Mets are coming off a dramatic walk off win yesterday against the Cardinals. New York got an eighth inning homer from Wilmer Flores in the bottom of the eight to tie the game at 2-2. Then in the bottom of the ninth, Yoenis Cespedes hit a walk off in field single for the 3-2 win.
Steven Matz (2-3, 4.58 ERA) will face the Athletics for the first time this year. Matz has been roughed up in his last three outings. He has pitched 12.1 innings, allowing 20 hits, 12 runs (all earned), three home runs, four walks, and seven strikeouts. He lost two of the three starts. The Mets lost all three starts by a combined run total of 19-4.

Free Oakland Athletics vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
The Mets are favorite in this game, but I’m wondering is Steve Matz will last past the fourth inning. He has been terrible this month. Take the Athletics in the upset win.
