Result: Win

This is an 8* play on the METS

The Mets have won 7 of their last 8 games, the lone loss coming on Friday here in Pittsburgh. But they quickly responded with a 7-5 win last night and are now within two games of .500. That may not sound like much, but the Mets are just four back of the Wild Card. Pittsburgh has long ceased being a contender. They've lost 17 of 21 games since the All Star Break and are in last place in the NL Central. The Mets recent winning ways allowed them to keep Noah Syndergaard for the stretch run and that's definitely a good thing considering his 1.91 ERA and 36 strikeouts in the second half of the season. He's pitched at least seven innings in each of his last four starts and believe it or not, that's a career first. In three career starts vs. Pittsburgh, Syndergaard has a 1.77 ERA. The Pirates can only offer up Joe Musgrove as resistance. While Musgrove has been better of late, he still has a 4.52 ERA at home and struggled in his most recent start here, giving up six runs.
