It’s a true pick ‘em, with both the Mets and Padres coming in at -110 on the Moneyline. The Mets are playing as well as anybody in baseball, but the Padres enter with momentum too after taking three straight from Milwaukee. Blake Snell is starting to round into form, but the Padres are yet to win a game he starts and that probably doesn’t change Monday.
We like the Mets moneyline.
Garcia’s 2022 record: (18-12)
The Mets just keep on winning. After dropping the first two games of the series against the preseason National League favorite Los Angeles Dodgers, New York took the final two games of the series to earn the split including a 5-4 victory in extras on Sunday.
That’s now eight wins in the past 10 games for New York, which continues to have one of the hottest offenses in the game. The Mets scored just one run in those two losses on Thursday and Friday, but in their eight wins over the past 10 games, they’ve scored 63 runs.
Their +76 run differential is the third-best in all of baseball and their 286 runs scored is second behind only the Dodgers.
Meanwhile, San Diego has done a good job keeping pace with the aforementioned Dodgers. The Padres (33-21) are just two games back in the NL West race and just took three straight games from the NL Central-leading Milwaukee Brewers to snap their four-game losing streak.
The latest win, 6-4 in extras, came courtesy of a Jake Cronenworth 3-run shot in the 10th inning. San Diego now gets to start a stretch where it plays 14 of its next 21 games at home where they will look to get their offense going.
The Padres rank in the middle or near the bottom of the league in a number of categories including runs (T-17th), OBP (17th), batting average (.20th) and slugging percentage (27th).
Neither Carlos Carrasco or Blake Snell are what they once were, but both have winning pedigrees and are capable of dominating an opposing lineup on any given night.
Snell, who missed more than five weeks earlier this season with a groin injury, is still working his way back into form and in his most recent outing looked quite good. Snell is 0-2 with a 4.80 ERA but has limited base runners with just a 1.07 WHIP.
In his last outing, Snell turned a quality start, going six innings and giving up just two runs on two hits, three walks and six strikeouts against the Cardinals.
San Diego is 0-3 in his three starts this season. He’s hoping to start doing his part for a pitching staff that has been among the best in baseball, and ranks first in quality starts (31), 2nd in batting average against (.215), and fifth in both WHIP (1.13) and ERA (3.35).
On the other side, Carlos Carrasco has had a very nice season with the Mets. The 35-year-old is tied for second in the MLB in wins with a 6-1 record, though his other numbers like his ERA (3.63) and WHIP (1.21) are just good, not great.
Carrasco has thrown fewer than six innings in each of his past four starts, though he did just throw five scoreless against Washington in a win last week.
For the Mets, we’re looking for someone who tears up left-handed pitching, so we’re going to go with Eduardo Escobar. The third baseman is hitting .291 (16-for-55) against southpaws and a .930 OPS. Three of his four home runs this year have come with a left-hander on the mound.
For San Diego, we’re going to focus on Luke Voit. The Padres’ designated hitter is hitting .294 so far in June and three of his four home runs this year have come when he’s playing at home.
