The San Francisco Giants have dropped four in a row and have scored just a total of nine runs during the skid. They were outscored 20-6 in getting swept by the Reds over the weekend.
The New York Mets meanwhile are coming off back-to-back triumphs at Philadelphia and will surely be looking forward to playing in front of the home town crowd at Citi Field following an 11-game, five-city road trip.
Mets right-hander Zack Wheeler (8-6, 3.75 ERA) has compiled a 2.04 ERA with 37 Ks against eight walks through 39 2/3 innings during a seven-game winning streak. He is 2-1 with a 4.15 ERA in four career starts against the Giants.
San Francisco counters with left-hander Derek Holland (6-8, 3.83 ERA) who was lucky to leave his last start after 4 2/3 scoreless innings despite giving up six hits and four walks. Mets are 4-1 in their last 5 games vs. a left-handed starter and I think they’ll give Holland a hard time tonight.
Mets have won five of the last six meetings.
Free pick on NY Mets ML.
Mike Lundin has just two plays here on Monday, but both are MASSIVE 10* releases and one of them his GAME OF THE WEEK for Week 2 of the NFL preseason.
