New York Mets 

New York played the rubber game of their three-game set with Arizona on the road Wednesday afternoon. The Mets were knocked off 6-5 in 10 innings on Tuesday night. The Mets took game three off the Diamondbacks with a high-scoring 7-6 win, improving to 27-21 and extending their lead to four-games in the NL East. Despite being a first-place team, the Mets have had their issues at the plate this season scoring just 3.66 runs per game which ranks 29h in scoring offense, and are hitting just .229 as a team. Dominic Smith leads the Mets with 42 hits and 19 RBI while Francisco Lindor and Pete Alonso have combined for 72 hits and 36 RBI.

 

Prediction

The Mets are still sputtering at the plate, which has been a season-long issue. The Padres are a bit more productive at the plate and that gives them the edge here.
