It’s the opening match in a two-game series featuring National League sides with opposing perspectives regarding the way the initial half of their campaign has played out. As their 3-game series against the Arizona Diamondbacks gets underway on Tuesday July 4th, the New York Mets will be away from home.
Arizona lost the third match of the 3-game series, missing the opportunity to sweep the Angels in their own turf. They only had 5 hits overall on Sunday, and no player had more than one. As of Monday, the Diamondbacks have a 50-35 record and a three-game lead over the Dodgers in the NL West division.
Zach Davies will start for Arizona in his tenth game of the year after missing out earlier in the year due to an oblique strain. Over 42.2 innings of play, he has a 1-4 record, a 6.54 ERA, a 1.617 WHIP, 20 walks, and 33 strikeouts. Davies’ most recent start, on Wednesday in their own backyard versus Tampa Bay, didn’t factor in the decision. In a match that the Diamondbacks lost 3-2, he pitched 7 innings, giving up no runs on 2 hits, 2 walks, and 3 strikeouts.
As they won the final match in their 3-game series against the Giants in their own stadium on Sunday evening, New York increased their July record to 2-0. The Mets showed some encouraging signs in their weekend series against the Giants, including signs of life in their lineup. It will be exciting to watch how this young group of players progresses over time – and any win here would be an important milestone in that direction. The Mets have a record of 38-46 and are 4th in the NL East, 18.5 games below the Braves for the division lead.
In this game, Mets pitcher Kodai Senga is making his sixteenth start of the year on the mound. He enters the game with a record of 6-5, a 3.53 ERA, a 1.347 WHIP, 46 walks, and 101 strikeouts in 81.2 innings pitched. Senga’s most recent start, on Wednesday in his hometown versus the Brewers, didn’t factor in the decision.
