Game Preview

The New York Mets and the Houston Astros come into this week’s three-game interleague series at Minute Maid Park looking for something – anything – to get them back on track after both teams have struggled recently. While a trip to the World Series remains on Houston’s agenda, for New York it means showing that they can at least compete against teams such as the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Philadelphia Phillies to keep a playoff berth alive.
The Houston Astros came into this campaign as the American League’s side to defeat, yet they have struggled to get off to an ideal start. Despite having a 39-32 overall record, the Astros have dropped to the 3rd spot in the AL West after 4 straight defeats, including a loss to the Washington Nationals and a series sweep to the Cincinnati Reds.
With 472 at-bats and a slash line of.239/.298/.409, Houston has hit 19 homers in the past 2 weeks. Over that time, the Astros’ bullpen has performed admirably, posting a 3.60 ERA, 1.34 WHIP, and a .247 opponents’ batting average.
Hunter Brown, a 24-year-old right-hander, will pitch in this game for the Astros. He has a 6-3 record, a 3.35 ERA, a 1.19 WHIP, and an 83/26 K/BB ratio in 13 outings this season. Brown’s 2 most recent starts have resulted in a 1-1 record.

Despite having the highest wages in the sport, the Mets are currently 5 matches under .500 and are witnessing the unstable course of their campaign. Having an overall 33-38 record and only 3 victories across their previous 10 matches, the Mets have dropped to the 4th spot in the NL East.
The Mets have had a dismal 5.70 ERA, 1.47 WHIP, and .280 opposing batting average during the past few weeks while posting a .237/.314/.434 triple-slash with 19 homers in 389 at-bats.
Max Scherzer, a 38-year-old righty, will take the mound on Monday. So far this year, he has made 11 starts and thrown 56.2 innings, going 5-2 and posting a 4.45 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, and a 60/14 K/BB ratio.
