This is a 10* on NY METS

This is a critically important game for the Mets season. While one of only seven National League teams to have scored more runs than they’ve allowed (they share the same +1 run diff as the Phillies), New York is six games below .500 and 2.5 gms out of the playoffs after losing 4-1 to the Phillies last night. But they’ve got the proverbial “ace in the hole” working Wednesday in Jacob deGrom, whose last two starts have produced a 14-1 win and 18-1 win. That’s a combined 32-2 score and the 14-1 win came against Philly! For the year, deGrom has a 1.67 ERA and 0.87 WHIP. The Mets are 7-2 in his 9 starts. deGrom has yet to allow more than two earned runs in any start. The Mets are 0-3 since deGrom last started a game and just 14-24 in all non-deGrom starts. But this is a real difference maker as deGrom is also 8-1 with a 2.16 ERA in 16 career starts for the Phillies. The home team’s lineup is severely depleted right now with Rhys Hoskins, Jay Bruce and J.T. Realmuto all M.I.A. The remainder of the Phillies lineup just isn’t going to get it done. The Mets had their chances last night at the plate (11 hits), but were 0 for 6 when runners were in scoring position. Look for that to turn around tonight and deGrom takes care of the rest.
