The Astros enter play having just split a four-game series with the Yankees and it could have been even better had Aaron Judge not hit two walk offs in the series. Still, Houston is 8-3 in its last 11. The Mets still hold the best record in the NL, but Carlos Corrasco simply gives up too many runs and doesn’t go deep enough into games

Garcia’s 2022 record: (23-14)
The Astros numbers aren’t as gaudy as the Mets’, but they are still hitting for plenty of power with the sixth best slugging percentage in all of baseball. Yordan Alvarez and Kyle TUcker have done the majority of their work on the road, so they’re worth keeping an eye on.
Alvarez has 13 home runs, 31 RBIs, a .417 on-base percentage and a sky-high 1.104 OPS in 36 games when not at Minute Maid Park. Tucker meanwhile has 10 home runs and 31 RBIs in 37 games outside of Houston, with a .930 OBP.
The Mets, meanwhile, just rake all the way across the board – especially at home. As a team New York is 2nd in runs scored, second in on-base percentage and third in batting average.
The Mets have seven players who have played at least 17 home games with a .361 OBP (league average is .312) or better and seven with an OPS of .794 or higher (league average is .705).
Carlos Corrasco is 8-3 this season – that’s tied for the fourth most victories in all of baseball. Usually one doesn’t have that many victories while putting up average numbers, but Corrasco hasn’t been nearly as good as his record would indicate.
The 35-year-old veteran has a 4.42 ERA and 1.29 WHIP, numbers that have jumped up after two rough outings in his last three starts. Since June 11th, Corrasco has allowed 13 runs in 13.1 innings, giving up 21 hits and five walks – just a shade below a 2.00 WHIP.
Corrasco has made it through six innings just twice in his last starts and has given up four runs or more four times.
Framber Valdez, meanwhile, has been very solid for the Astros. The power left-handed thrower enters play with a 2.90 ERA. 1.13 WHIP and a 7-3 record. But what he doesn’t get enough credit for, is his ability to go deep into games each and every time out.
Not only has Valdez gone six innings or more in 12 of 14 outings, he’s thrown 11 consecutive quality starts and has given up more than three earned runs just once (April 19) this season.
For New York, the x-factor to watch is Jeff McNeill. The second baseman has been out for a week with a hamstring injury, but manager Buck Schowalter said he is expected to be back Tuesday.
McNeil has been the Mets’ best hitter against lefties this year, batting .299 (20-for-67) with a .365 OBP.
For Houston, it’s red-hot Jose Altuve. The Astros’ second baseman has three home runs the past week and two doubles, good for a 1.274 OPS.
