New York Mets Going for the Season Win
The New York Mets entered Saturday with a three-game winning streak, including the first two of this series, but the Giants were able to grab the 7-4 win. The Giants put up four runs in the first inning and led 6-1 after two innings as they comfortably got the win. It was their first loss in a few days, but the Mets probably have one eye on the plane ride home from the West Coast.
Tylor Megill takes the mound for the fifth time this season and will look to continue his strong start that has seen him pitch to a 3.00ERA and 1.43 WHIP.
Pete Alonso is mashing to start the season as he leads the Mets with 10 home runs and 23 RBIs. No pitcher can get Brandon Nimmo out as he has a team high .368 batting average to start 2023.
The San Francisco Giants Need to Find Some Mojo
San Francisco needed a win in the worst way, and they now have a chance to win two games in a row for the first time this season. The Giants have lost all but one of their series this season and they can get a series split with a win on Sunday Night Baseball.
Ross Stripling will make his second start of the season and he will hope to improve on his 7.30 ERA and 1.46 WHIP.
J.D. Davis has been solid to start 2023 and he leads the Giants with four home runs and 13 BIs. Thairo Estrada has a team high .329 batting average.
