Mets Looking for Sweep Of Slumping Cubs

The New York Mets – a team that less than a month ago was getting swept by the lowly Atlanta Braves – are one game away from sweeping the Chicago Cubs Sunday. The Mets – who have now won seven-straight against the Cubbies – have outscored their opponents 18-8 through the first three games in the series.  

Shark Bites
  • The Mets have scored the second-fewest runs against lefties in the MLB this season.
  • The UNDER is 10-5 in the Mets’ past 15 games.
  • The Cubs are just 4-9 in their past 13 games.

Jon Lester has been pitching lights out for the Cubs, as the veteran has given up just eight runs in his past 51 innings of work. Lester has specifically excelled when pitching on the road this season, with the lefty posting a stellar 1.73 ERA away from the friendly confines of Wrigley Field.

Will the bone spur in Noah Syndergaard’s elbow affect the pitcher? That’s the question all Mets fans are asking themselves ahead of his start Sunday. Thor is coming off his worst two-game stretch of the season, as the hurler gave up 15 hits and eight runs across just nine innings of work.
