Mets vs. Royals MLB Pick – August 16th

Even the New York Mets Awakened at Atlanta last night Using a 10-8 Triumph over the Braves.

They needed the win to prevent a sweep before heading to Kansas City for a weekend series against the Royals. It wasn’t easy in the finish, but they ultimately got the work done. The Braves scored 4 runs in the bottom of the 9th to make it a 10-8 game with the tying run in the plate. This was as long as the Braves got to the Mets, however. This was a significant victory for the Mets, as they risked going to a four-game losing streak immediately after their 15-1 run. Though they caught flame, the Metropolitans have a great deal of work left if they want to be playing at the Wild Card Game. Even the Mets are down by two games in the National League, together with the Phillies, Brewers, and Cubs involving these along with a wildcard. After doing an excellent job of coming back to make a case at going to the postseason, it would bite if the Mets do miss out on moving into the Wild Card Game. They had been six games back when they obtained Marcus Stroman, therefore that the front office was convinced even at there. It certainly sent a message throughout the franchise that they weren’t simply going to give up in their year. Stroman has been engaged in a win in each of his starts with the Mets. Last night was his best effort as a Met, having allowed 2 earned runs in 5.1 innings of work. What makes the Mets harmful is what they can do with their own turning. After turning into Stroman last night, the Mets go with another above average hurler in Noah Syndergaard against the Royals this day. Syndergaard was heating up recently. We’ll see if this proceeds at Kauffman Stadium in this one. The Royals will counter with veteran Mike Montgomery. Head under for our complimentary Mets vs. Royals pick. Betting odds provided by bovada.lv Total on the year in 2019, Syndergaard has been a competent pitcher and been than more satisfactory to the Mets. However, he wasn’t pitching at an elite level or anticipated level of production. I think a part of the attribute had to be together using all the distractions from the media regarding trade rumors. There were times, according to national pundits, that it had been a lock that Syndergaard was on the way out. There was a smoke free of fire. Syndergaard has been at his best most recently, as he seems to improve to a 1.27 ERA and 0.89 WHIP in his past three outings. The pitcher known as Thor, has surrendered less than 3 runs in five of his last six starts. He has also been improved on the road, posting a 3.53 ERA and also 1.14 WHIP rather than a 4.23 ERA along with 1.28 WHIP at Citi Field. The Royals’ offense has scored 2 runs on Syndergaard at 26 at-bats. I don’t anticipate the 27th best offense in the majors to be able to do much damage against Syndergaard tonight. He has been enjoying with his very best baseball of the year and it probably doesn’t slow down from the Royals. On the opposite side, Mike Montgomery was pitching well lately as well. Montgomery enters with a 3.31 ERA and 1.22 WHIP in his last 3 showings. Maybe not on Syndergaard’s level of productivity, but due to their standard, that is certainly not poor. He has to be aware of this lineup that have done exceptionally well against lefties. The Mets are hitting .269 against left-handed pitching and Montgomery has not been at his best in KC this season. Montgomery carries a 4.82 ERA and also 1.50 WHIP at Kauffman Stadium in to Friday night. Before being traded from the Cubs, Montgomery submitted an ERA of 5.67 in 27 innings from the bullpen. He’s been much better with the Royals, but not better with a 4.63 ERA along with 1-3 record. Start Looking for the Mets to open up a direct and get from Friday night with a win by 2 or more runs.
