Mets Hoping To Sweep Yankees

There were no Jacob deGrom sightings after some speculation that the two-time Cy Young Award winner might make his 2022 debut for the New York Mets against the rival Yankees.

Even without deGrom getting the call, Wednesday’s pitching matchup is pretty intriguing. Domingo German, an 18-game winner for New York three seasons ago, will make his second start of the season. Max Scherzer will get the call for the Mets.

Judge Swinging Hot Bat

Aaron Judge was struggling a bit earlier this month. He was 9-for-45 with five extra-base hits and two home runs in the first 12 games he played during the month of June. Four of those hits and two of those extra-base hits came in a two-game set against a Pittsburgh Pirates team that is 26th in the majors in earned run average.

Judge is back crushing the ball with at least two hits in six of his last nine outings. He has five home runs in his last five games and over the last four, he is hitting .588 with four home runs and nine RBIs.

Judge hit .238 against the Mets in 2021 although three of his five hits were home runs. Judge is doing all of this without one of the other top power hitters in the lineup for the Yankees. Giancarlo Stanton hasn’t played since Saturday and is on the 10-day injured list with left Achilles’ tendinitis.

The MLB betting lines total has gone over in nine of the Yankees last 11 road games.

Alonso Heating Up

This could sound familiar as Alonso has followed the same script as Judge. He had a slow start in July. Alonso was batting .208 in the first 19 games in July. He had just two home runs during that span.

Alonso is 7-for-10 with three doubles, a home run and five RBIs in the last three games. He is leading the majors with 83 RBIs and is third in the National League with a .541 slugging percentage.

Alonso is on pace for 139 RBIs and that would be the most for a National League hitter since 2009. He is attempting to become the first player from the New York Mets to lead the National League in RBIs since Howard Johnson in 1991. No Mets player has led the majors in RBIs. There could be more history as there has never been a season when each league’s RBI leader played for New York franchises.

Five of the Mets last six games against teams from the American League East have gone over the Las Vegas odds total.

Yankees vs Mets Head-to-Head

The Mets have won six of the last eight games against the New York Yankees, including Tuesday’s 6-3 win. The previous two games between the teams were decided by one run. Six of the last eight contests have featured at least 10 runs being scored.

D.J. LeMathieu led the Yankees with a .350 batting average against the Mets in 2021 with Judge hitting three of the 10 home runs in the six games against the Mets. The most effective reliever for the Yankees against the Mets in 2021 was Michael King and he is not expected to pitch again in 2022.

Francisco Lindor had four home runs and nine RBIs while hitting .381 against the Yankees last season. Jeff McNeil hit .500 against the Yankees last season. had won four of five against the Padres before San Diego won twice in the three-game series in early June. Scherzer has pitched against the Yankees just twice since the start of the 2016 season. He is 0-1 with a 3.55 ERA and 25 strikeouts in 12⅔ innings.

Yankees vs Mets Picks and Prediction

It is hard to know what to expect from German. After missing the 2020 season, he is just 4-6 with a 4.88 ERA. His first start of 2022 didn’t go that well as he allowed six hits, two home runs, and five runs in three innings in a loss to Houston on July 21.

Something to consider for those who bet online, the total has gone over the last five times the Mets played host to the Yankees. Seven of the last eight meetings between the teams ended up going over the total. The total is 7½ for this game.

The Yankees are just 4-6 over the last 10 games. The bullpen continues to lose key pieces with King joining Chad Green on the injured list for the remainder of 2022.

Catcher James McCann and first baseman Dominic Smith are on the injured list for the Mets.

It is never easy to pick against a team when Scherzer gets the ball, especially in a nationally televised showcase like Wednesday’s game. Could the teams engage in another one-run affair, something that has happened five times in the last 12 meetings?

  • Pick: Mets -175
  • Pick: Yankees +1½ (-145)
