Arizona Diamondbacks Analysis

The Arizona Diamondbacks, with a respectable batting average of 0.252, have proven particularly adept at scoring runs this season, amassing 678 runs on 1244 hits for an on base percentage of 0.323 and slugging percentage of 0.414 respectively. Their offense has proven powerful against National League East Division teams thus far; going 4-9 straight up over 13 games (SU). But recently there have been signs that their offense may be struggling against other rivals, leading them to go 4-9.

On the pitching front, Merrill Kelly has been an essential piece for Arizona this season. With an 11-6 win-loss record and an outstanding 3.16 ERA and 1.19 WHIP rating over 154 innings pitched he has allowed only 125 hits to opposing batters while striking out 165 times against only 58 walks to give Arizona an arm capable of controlling game tempo and momentum.

New York Mets Analysis

The New York Mets have had an up-and-down season, yet their offense can still be deadly, particularly their long ball potential. Their 193 homers for the season can be game changers despite having only an average batting average of 0.238 and On Base Percentage of 0.318. Nonetheless, they’ve scored 635 runs on 1143 hits despite an overall team performance that’s seen them finish with an 67-78 record; but once hot they can turn the tables quickly; making them unpredictable yet potentially rewarding picks!

Kodai Senga stands out as an intriguing pitcher for the Mets. His 10-7 Win-Loss record, 3.07 ERA and 1.23 WHIP make him an attractive candidate. In 149.1 innings pitched thus far he has amassed 181 strikeouts to his credit – evidence of his ability to close out innings when it matters most – although 70 walks could present issues when facing an Arizona offense adept at capitalizing on mistakes. Nonetheless, Senga’s penchant for strikeouts makes him an formidable opponent no matter their lineups’.
