Today, two Intra-city rivals will close out a two-game Subway Series when the New York Mets face the New York Yankees in the Bronx. These are two of the very best teams in the major leagues, with The Mets sitting at the top of the National League East by 4 games at 79-44, while the Yankees hold an eight-game lead in the American League East with a record of 74-48. Yesterday, the Bombers picked up a 4-2 win, but the last time these teams met at Citi Field the Mets ended up winning both matchups.
The Mets are hard to deal with as they are the fifth-highest scoring offense in baseball at 4.80 runs per game on a strong .740 team OPS. The pitching staff ranks sixth at a 3.59 ERA including a mark of 3.66 from the bullpen. Jeff McNeil is having a stellar campaign at the plate with 49 RBI and 54 runs scored. Francisco Lindor has been one of baseball’s most valuable overall players at 5.5 WAR on an .805 OPS, 21 homers, 13 steals and 84 RBI.
But the Yankees have a strong offense of their own too. Even with the recent struggles this remains the second-highest scoring offense in baseball at 5.02 runs per game on a .755 team OPS that is third-best. The pitching staff also remains ranked in the top three with a 3.35 collective ERA including a mark of 3.01 from a strong bullpen. Aaron Judge is having a historic season, posting a 1.044 OPS with 46 homers and 102 RBI. LeMahieu has also been effective at the plate, posting a .790 OPS with 12 homers and 71 runs scored.
The Bombers are sending Frankie Montas to the mound, who is making his 4th start in a Yankees uniform this season. He is carrying a 4-10 record with a 3.87 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP over 118.2 innings pitched while striking out 117. Their rivals will reply back with Taijuan Walker, who has had a much better season so far. The 30-year-old righty holds a 10-3 record with a 3.36 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP over 112.1 innings pitched while striking out 85.
