New York Mets at San Diego Padres Tips
The San Diego Padres will host the New York Mets in the first game of a series at Petco Park.
Both teams head into this three-game series in decent nick. They’re facing each other for the first time this season. I’m backing the Nets to win the opening game.
- New York Mets have won 39 and lost 17 matches all season.
- New York Mets have won their last 2 matches.
- San Diego Padres have won 33 and lost 21 of their matches this season.
San Diego Padres Form
The Padres just won their series against the Brewers by a score of 3-1 and head into this match with some nice momentum but have been in some patchy form overall. They’re second in the NL West Standings, one of the most competitive divisions in the league. They’ve won 5 and lost 5 in their last 10.
Manny Machado has starred with the bat all season. He’s hit 9 home runs, has an RBI of 32, .333 average and .409 OBP. They’ll need Joe Musgrave to show up with the ball. He has an ERA of 1.64, 0.92 WHIP in 10 starts, 64 strikeouts and 14 walks.
New York Mets Form
The Mets are fresh off of a tight series against the Los Angeles Dodgers after struggling in their first two matches before pulling of two very impressive wins. The 4th game of the series had to go to a 10th innings with the Mets eventually coming out on top.
Pete Alonso has been key to their form this season, he has hit 16 home runs, averages .283, has an RBI of 54 and OBP of .359. Just as crucial has been 35-year-old Carlos Carrasco with an ERA of 3.63, 1.21 WHIP in 10 starts, 51 strikeouts and 13 walks.
They’ve got 8 wins and 2 losses in their last 10 and currently head the NL East standings and should retain that whatever the outcome of this series.
The home form of the Padres has been a bit of a concern with a 13-10 record and it just may define the outcome of this game. The Mets are in excellent form heading into this and should come out on top in what promises to be an excellent game and series.
