Result: Win

3-unit Play Take #957 New York Mets over Miami Marlins (7:10pm EST) The Mets won a big series against the Nationals over the weekend, and have catapulted themselves back into first place in the NL East as a result. That has to be a huge confidence builder for this team. Throw in a couple of big additions before the trade deadline (Yoenis Cespedes and Tyler Clippard) and New York has lots of momentum entering this series against the Marlins. The same can't be said of Miami, who hasn't found its rhythm all season long. Things have only gotten worse since General Manager Dan Jennings stepped into the dugout to manage the team. Giancarlo Stanton is also still on the disabled list, and that leaves a huge void in the middle of the lineup. Bartolo Colon and Tom Koehler will take the mound in this matchup, and while Koehler checks in with the better ERA on the season, I think Colon is the better pitcher. His peripherals are better and he has a better defense behind him with the Mets. The addition of Clippard also gives the Mets one of the best bullpens in the league. Take New York to get the win here.
