Tampa Bay Rays
Rays are just three victories away from capturing the #1 seed in the American League. No one would have thought at the beginning of the season that the Rays would have the #1 seed heading into the playoffs, but that’s 2020 for ya.
Tampa Bay is a top 10 scoring team in the league averaging 4.80 runs per game. Brandon Lowe has proven to be the Ray’s best offensive player this season. Lowe leads the team with 13 home runs and 33 RBI’s, he also is the only player on the team to eclipse 10 HR’s.
Blake Snell will be making his 11th start in this one looking for his fifth win of the season. Snell is 4-1 with a 3.08 ERA on the year. He has surrendered 15 runs in 40.8 innings of work to go with his 54 strikeouts and 15 walks.
New York Mets
New York has to be in must-win mode for the rest of the season as they are 2.5 games back of the final wild-card spot in the East. With only six games left in the regular season, the Mets window is closing very fast.
The Amazins’ are 4-6 in their last 10 games mostly in part to their offense not being able to string hits together. New York was outscored 24-9 in their series with the Braves over the weekend where they went 1-2 heading into this series with the Rays. As a team, the Mets score 4.85 runs per game making them the 10th best scoring offense in the league.
The Mets will send out Seth Lugo to open the game against the Rays seeking to get his third win of the year. Lugo is 2-2 with a 4.38 ERA coming into Tuesday. He will be making his fifth start, but 15th appearance on Tuesday.

Free Tampa Bay Rays vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
This game is a must-win for New York as they are running out of time to clinch the last wild card spot in the NL. Seth Lugo has been the Met’s second-best starter behind DeGrom and I think the Metsies will have a little extra pep in their step as players always know where teams sit in the standings. Give me Pete Alonso and company to win the game in a close one.
