Mets Looking To Continue Controlling the Rockies
Colorado enters Saturday night with an overall record of 54-73 and continues to struggle to win games on the road. The Rockies are 18-41 away from home.
New York enters Saturday night with 81 wins and continues to lead the NL East. The Mets are 42-19 at home, and they have continued to rack up the wins to stay on top of the Atlanta Braves.
Rockies Can’t Score on the Road
After another tough loss on Friday night, Colorado Rockies manager Bud Black had a pretty clear response about his team. Black is clearly showing some frustration with his squad, saying, “That was an emotional rollercoaster for both sides. That was a tough one.”
Colorado has put up some huge offensive numbers at home this season, but they just haven’t been able to find a way to score a ton of runs on the road. C.J. Cron leads this team with 24 home runs and 84 RBIs, but he hasn’t gotten a ton of help away from Coors Field.
Kyle Freeland is set to take the start and he is 7-8 with a 4.93 ERA. Colorado also has a struggling pitching staff, and that is going to create a problem in New York against the Mets.
Pitching Powering the Mets
The New York Mets have done a ton of things right this season, but the starting pitching has been the strongest part of this team. New York has a team ERA of 3.56 this season and they have a dominant starting staff that continues to shut teams down.
Left-hander David Peterson will start and he is 6-3 with a 3.44 ERA. Peterson is not one of the biggest names in the rotation, but he has done his job when he is on the mound.
Pete Alonso continues to lead the Mets on offense as he now has 31 home runs and 105 RBIs. New York doesn’t always put up a ton of runs, but they continue to come up with big hits when they need to.

Rockies vs Mets Prediction
The first two games of this weekend series should show you that making MLB picks is much harder than simply looking at the overall records and making a bet. Colorado has been extremely competitive in both games but New York has always been able to find a way to win.
The starting pitching matchup seems to favor the Mets in a big way, and it’s always hard to pass up on that type of matchup. Look for the Mets to once again find enough offense in this game and the starting pitching to start to take control again.
