Expect Offense in World Series Rematch

Though you don’t immediately think of the New York Mets or Kansas City Royals as offensive juggernauts, there have been runs aplenty when the two square off against one another. The OVER is 6-1 in the past seven contests between the Mets and Royals with the two teams combining for an average of 8.7 runs per game.

Shark Bites
  • The Royals have won seven of the last eight games against the Mets.
  • Steven Matz will be available out of the bullpen for the Mets.
  • Lorenzo Cain reached base in three of his four plate appearances when these teams met Sunday.

New York will send fireballer Noah Syndergaard to the mound with the youngster looking to continue his solid play against KC. Thor has only pitched once in his young career against the Royals, though that came in Game 3 of the World Series, with Syndergaard going 6.0 innings while allowing three runs and tallying six strikeouts.

The Royals will counter with finesse pitcher Chris Young who posted a 3.06 ERA and 1.09 WHIP last season. Young pitched twice in the World Series against the Mets with the veteran allowing just two hits over 7.0 innings.
