Result: Loss
This is a 10* on NY METS

The Mets are looking to rebound from a 7-0 loss Monday. That leaves them 3.5 games back of the Wild Card and 5.5 games back of the division lead in the NL East. Most have already forgotten, but the Mets did lead the division for most of this season. They went cold in August at the same time the Braves got hot. But that’s all “water under the bridge” now as they need wins in a hurry. Marcus Strowman has been their most consistent starter (since Jacob deGrom went down) and will start tonight’s game vs. a St. Louis team that - prior to the ninth inning of yesterday’s game - hadn’t been doing a ton of scoring recently. The Cardinals have won the last two games in shutout fashion, but also have scored two runs or less in six of the last 10 games. Having won three straight, they are a ½ game back of the Wild Card now, but they’ve still got a negative run differential on the year. The Mets actually have a slightly better RD than the Cardinals (-10 vs. -13). We’re skeptics on St. Louis tonight as they have Jake Woodford set to go. He’s simply not as good as Stroman. The Cardinals can’t count on getting a start like the one they got from Adam Wainwright last night. If the Mets can swing the bats like they did vs. the Yankees (averaged eight runs/game in three game series) and Strowman delivers his usual solid start, then this will be an easy win for the home team. That’s what we see happening here. Play on NY METS
