Game Preview: Giants vs Mets

The Mets have faced the Dodgers, then the Giants, then the Dodgers and finally the Giants. After this series, the Mets schedule gets a bit more favorable if they want to make an improbable, last month run at the division title. On Sunday the Mets avoided the season and series sweep from the Dodgers. The Mets opened up with three quick runs in the first inning against David Price. The Dodgers eventually got two runs back but then the Mets started tacking on insurance runs. Was it a blip? Was it a start of a run for the Mets? We’ll find out tonight.

Tylor Megill has made 11 starts totaling 56.0 innings with a 3.21 ERA, 3.56 FIP, 1.161 WHIP and a 125 ERA+. He’s coming off of his best start since the end of July, where he held the Giants to 1 run over 6.0 innings from 5 hits and 2 walks while striking out 6 (in a game the Mets won 6-2).
