Mets' Bats Have Gone Silent

The New York Mets have been having all sorts of offensive issues as of late, and those problems reached a new low on Tuesday when Pittsburgh Pirates’ rookie Jameson Taillon took a no-hitter into the seventh inning in his second career start. The NL clubs will square off once again on Wednesday in the Big Apple.

  • The Pirates are 4-1 SU in their last five games with Jeff Locke as the starting pitcher.
  • The total has gone UNDER in four of the Mets' last five games at home.

New York has dropped 10 of its last 16 games and is scoring an average of 2.7 runs in that span. Noah Syndergaard (6-2, 2.00 ERA) is searching for his first career win against Pittsburgh, but is 2-1 with a 1.96 ERA at home on the season.

Jeff Locke (5-4, 5.38) threw a three-hit shutout at Miami on May 30 and followed it up with with seven stellar outings in a win over the L.A. Angels on June 4.

Cubs Have Been Too Much For Nats

Though the Washington Nationals and Chicago Cubs will play the rubber match in their series on Wednesday, the Cubbies have been dominating the Nats in recent outings - with Chicago winning seven of the past eight meetings. That’s not to say those games have not been close as four of those eight victories have come by two runs or fewer.

Shark Bites
  • The UNDER is 13-5 in the Cubs’ past 18 games.
  • Jason Hammel has held batters to a .184 batting average with runners in scoring position.
  • The UNDER is 3-0 in the past three between the Cubs and Nationals.

Stephen Strasburg is the lone flawless pitcher left in the MLB with the strikeout machine going 10-0 in his first 13 starts – with the Nationals going 12-1 in those outings. Strasburg has recorded double-digit strikeouts in four of his past five games while averaging 8.5 K’s per game this year.

Jason Hammel had one of his worst outings of the season when he faced the Nationals on May 7, as the righty allowed three earned runs while last just 5.0 innings. Hammel has quietly been one of the most consistent batters in the MLB – it’s easy to go unnoticed when you’re in the same rotation as Jake Arrieta – with the 10-year veteran allowing more than three runs in an outing just once.
