Game Preview

When the New York Mets and Houston Astros play, it is always an exciting matchup to witness. This game will be played on Tuesday, June 20th at Minute Maid Park in Houston. This will be the second game of a three-game series between them. During the New York Mets’ 11-1 triumph against the struggling Houston Astros on Monday evening, Francisco Lindor hit a home run and contributed 5 runs, and Max Scherzer pitched 8 scoreless innings, his longest game with the team.
Even though both teams have struggled recently, this series still garners considerable excitement. The Astros appear to be favorites to prevail against the Mets this time out; having won all seven three- or four-game sets they have faced off against them so far.
Following its sweep to Philadelphia at the end of May, New York has yet to win a series. In the NL East rankings, the Mets have fallen 4 games below .500 and are twelve games behind division leaders the Atlanta Braves.
This matchup for the Mets is an important one, and they must find ways to increase their offensive output. They have struggled at producing at the top of their order while their lower-of-the-order hitters have done well recently; to stand a chance against Houston they must find more production from their upper order batsmen.

Houston has dropped 5 straight contests, including a series against Cincinnati that was swept. The Astros are currently 6.5 games back in the tight AL West division battle with a record of 3-7 over their past 10 matches overall.
Houston ranks 15th in terms of runs scored per game with 4.46 and hits .245 with a .715 OPS. The Astros are 16th in both base stealers with 51 and home runs with 81 this season.
The Mets will start Justin Verlander, a right-handed starter who has posted an impressive 4.40 ERA this season. Meanwhile, Framber Valdez of Houston boasts an outstanding 2.27 ERA from 14 starts this year.
