The New York Mets won 2 and lost 1 out of the opening series against Washington. Tonight they will play the first game of the series against the Miami Marlins, who had a weak
start against the Rockies, but managed to come back to tie the series to 2 wins / 2 losses.

Although the public is heavily supporting the Mets (71% for NY and 29% on Miami), expert opinions are a lot less polarized, 58% believe the Mets will win vs 42% who believe
Miami will win.

The Mets have a winning record of 4-1 in their last 5 vs. National League East opponents and, another interesting statistic is that apparently Steven Matz, knows how to keep them
Marlins in check, as the Mets are 5-0 in Matz’s last 5 starts vs. Marlins.


Final Score

NY Mets – S. Matz7
Marlins – C. Smith3
