The Marlins are 16-38 in their last 54 overall and 15-36 in the last 51 Tuesday games. Miami is 23-56 in their last 79 in game one of a series.
Meanwhile, the Mets are 8-2 in their last 10 overall and 5-2 in the last seven after a win. New York is 36-15 in the last 51 in game one of a series.
PICK: I’m going to take a stab on the Marlins. Lopez is doing pretty well over his last two starts, with a combined three earned in 13.1 innings on nine hits and one walk. Lopez did have a bad outing the last time he faced the Mets, however (3.2 innings; eight earned). As for Carrasco, he’s got five earned over his last three starts in 16.0 innings so he should do pretty well here also. It’ll be a fun matchup.
