Tampa Bay is coasting right now into the playoffs as they hold the best record in the American League at 35-19. The Mets on the other hand, are fighting for a playoff spot and are 2.5 games back of the Giants for the last wildcard spot in the National League. With only seven games left the Mets are going to have to play with some urgency in this one.
Tampa Bay Rays
Tampa Bay is still trying to lock up that #1 seed in the AL. With only seven games to go the Rays have a pretty tough schedule having to face the Mets and Phillies.
Offensively, the Rays average 4.85 runs per game which ranks them the 9th best scoring team in the league. Even with three of their starters out on the DL right now they are still finding a way to string wins together which shows the depth Tampa possesses on their bench.
Pete Fairbanks will be making his second start, but 24th appearance in this one looking for his sixth win on the season. Fairbanks has surrendered 7 runs in 23.1 innings pitched this year.
New York Mets
Mets are making a late push at that second wild-card spot as the league expanded the field this season to 16 teams.
Pete Alonso has really struggled in his sophomore season and it has been really disappointing for Met’s fans. Alonso is hitting just .208 but does have 12 home runs to his credit on the season. The bright spot in the Met’s lineup has actually been Pete’s backup Dominic Smith who found himself a permanent role in the DH spot due to his production. Smith leads the team with 18 doubles on the year and also leads the team in RBI’s driving in over 40 on the shortened season.
New York’s ace Jacob DeGrom will toe the rubber trying to get right after a rough start against the Phillies. DeGrom gave up more runs in any start against Philadelphia this year his last time out and was taken out in the second inning. Jake is 4-1 on the season with a 2.09 ERA in 10 starts this season.

Free Tampa Bay Rays vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
I love the over here as both lineups are going to fighting for playoff positioning and are going to have to put some runs on the board. DeGrom did not look sharp in his last start against a weak Phillies team, and now he’s facing an even better lineup in Tampa. I like the Mets to win this one, but I’m not too confident with a side so I’m riding the Over.
