Marlins Ride Hot Streak to Take On Struggling Mets

The Miami Marlins have seen a surge in performance in recent games, taking four of their last five. This includes a three-game sweep of the top-ranked team in baseball, the Atlanta Braves. They have put up 36 runs across the three games, showing an impressive offensive prowess. The Mets have won four of their last seven games but have struggled to consistently hit the ball on the road, putting together only 10 runs in the last four away games. Lucchesi, their starting pitcher, hasn’t found the same success away from home, allowing five runs across his last three away starts. With a top-nine worst bullpen, the Mets will find it difficult to slow the Marlins. On the Milwaukee side, they have seen Garrett hold his own in recent starts, giving up only two runs in his last three games. He did yield four runs when pitching at home, however, so the Mets will have to find an answer to break through. With the Marlins riding a hot streak and the Mets coming up against hard roadblocks, back Miami to cover the money line.
