Today’s matchup is between the New York Mets (25-31) and the Washington Nationals (23-33).

The Nationals are starting Max Scherzer (RHP), who is 4-4 on the season with a 3.67 ERA, 3.18 FIP, .311 wOBA, K% of 3.6%, BB% of 7.8%, 87.7 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.39 WHIP in 61.1 innings pitched.

The Mets are the 20th best in the Majors in Relieving Pitching, while the Nationals are 22nd.

On the hitting side, the Mets have a .342 wOBA and a .347 OBP. The Nationals have a .322 wOBA and a .327 OBP. The Mets have 79 HRs this season while the Nationals have 61 HRs.

I like the Mets here. Their batting is exceptional and Rick Porcello has a decent FIP in comparison to his ERA, so I think he can pull off a victory here, or the reliever should get the job done.
