The New York Mets haven’t been getting the job done against divisional opponents, but a Sunday matchup with the lowly Philadelphia Phillies could be exactly what the doctor ordered.
- The Mets are 1-5 in their last 6 road games.
- The UNDER is 4-1 in the Phillies' last 5 starts.
- The Mets are 1-4 in deGroms last 5 road starts.
Jacob deGrom and Zach Eflin are the probable starters for the Mets and Pittsburgh Pirates. deGrom (5-4, 2.61 ERA) has permitted three runs on 16 hits in his last three outings, and he’s 3-0 in his career against the Phils.
Eflin (2-2, 4.08) has recorded back-to-back victories after beginning his career with an 0-2 record.
Putting runs on the board has been the difference maker for the Mets this year. New York is 11-35 when scoring three or fewer runs this season.
