Tuesday 8* MLB MIA/NYM
NY Mets vs. Miami,
08/04/2015 19:10 EDT,
Score: 5 - 1
Money Line: -114 NY Mets
The Miami Marlins host the New York Mets on Tuesday.
The Mets rolled the Marlins by a score of 12-1 in the opener of this series, moving the team into the top spot in the NL East. In a long, 162-game season, teams need to find some goals which they can achieve to make the day-to-day work easier to handle, and after finally reaching the summit of the mountain and passing the Washington Nationals in the standings, the Mets won't be ready to give that top spot up just yet.
The Marlins have been awful offensively since Giancarlo Stanton went down. Since the All-Star break, the Marlins have lost eight of 10, scoring just 2.7 runs per game.
That's going to mean trouble Tuesday as Mets starters have allowed two runs or fewer in eight of their last nine games, and Jonathon Niese has allowed one run or fewer in four of his last six starts.
The Marlins are 2-15 in Brad Hand's last 17 starts against NL East opponents.
Take New York.
Good Luck, Razor Ray.
