The MLB is back in action as the Detroit Tigers will clash with the New York Mets. This is the final game of their three-game series from the Citi Field in the Big Apple. Both teams won one game each in the previous two.
Detroit Tigers Form
The Tigers are in a bad form at the moment. Moreover, they just ended their 9 games losing streak as they managed to win against the Mets in the first game. However, it seems that their form is still down. A supportive argument for this claim is their play on the mound has not been good. To be more specific, the Tigers allowed 7.63 runs per game in the last 11 games. Therefore, this is the main area that they need to improve. Their overall record stands at 19-30 so far this season.
On the offensive side of the game, the Tigers score an average of 3.41 runs per game. Therefore, this record is enough for the 29th spot in the league in scoring. Also, they are 25th in hitting at .224 and 39 homers in total so far this season.
On the mound, they are ranked 24th in the league in ERA at 5.00, while also ranking 25th in WHIP at 1.42 and 27th in K’s with 389.
New York Mets Form
The Mets are one of the better teams this season. However, they are in a tight contest with the Phillies for the top spot in their division. Therefore, they need to win these games against teams like the Tigers. However, they lost the first game and had to fight in order to win the second game with 5-4 in 13 innings. All in all, the Mets have the potential to play a crucial role in the World Series.
On the offensive side of the game, the Mets score an average of 4.60 runs per game. Therefore, this record is enough for the 17th spot in the league in scoring. Also, they are 17th in hitting at .245 and they have 61 homers in total so far. On the mound, they are ranked 21st in the league in ERA at 4.50, while also ranking 19th in WHIP at 1.35 and 9th in K’s with 466
The Tigers showed that they have potential so far in the series. However, their play on the mound is not at the necessary level. On the other side, the Mets are a dominant team this season and they cannot afford to drop more games like the first one. They need to keep the pace with the Phillies for the top spot. Therefore, I take the Mets to win this final game.
