NY Mets vs. Pittsburgh,

Score: 13 - 2
Point Spread: -1½/+117 NY Mets
The red hot New York Mets had recorded seven straight victories before taking a loss in the second game of this series with the Pirates Friday night.
They bounced back with a 7-5 triumph on Saturday, and I think they'll close out this series with another win behind Noah Syndergaard (7-5, 4.10 ERA). The 26-year-old right-hander had a poor first half of the season, but he has really stepped up his game since and owns a 1.91 ERA in four starts since the All-Star break.
Syndergaard has posted a 1.77 ERA in three career starts against the Pirates who counter with righty Joe Musgrove (8-9, 4.23 ERA). Musgrove was rocked by the Cards his last home start and owns a 4.52 ERA in 12 outings (11 starts) at PNC Park on the season.
Pirates are 1-8 in their last 9 games vs. a right-handed starter. Mets are 7-1 in their last 8 games vs. a right-handed starter. Mets are 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.
10* play on New York Mets -1.5.
