Diamondbacks at Mets 5/20/18 - MLB Picks & Predictions

In Sunday afternoon MLB action, the Arizona Diamondbacks and New York Mets will conclude a weekend series from Citi Field. The Diamondbacks have dropped nine of their last ten games overall and lead Colorado by a half-game for the NL West Division lead. Last night, Arizona could not hold on to a two-run lead in the eighth inning and lost by a 5-4 final score.

Thirty-three year old righty Clay Buchholz will make his first start as a member of the Arizona Diamondbacks. Buchholz has made 190 major league starts and owns a 81-62 record with a 4.01 ERA. The New York Mets have cooled off since their red hot start in April and are three games above .500 overall. On Saturday, Wilmer Flores drove in Brandon Nimmo with a walk-off sacrifice fly in the bottom of the ninth innings. Devon Mesoraco tied the game with a two-run blast in the eighth inning for the Mets, who are 3.5 games behind Atlanta for the NL East Division lead.

Flame-throwing righty Noah Syndergaard (3-1 3.14 ERA) will head to the hill for the Mets on Sunday. Last time out, Syndergaard allowed five hits and struck out seven batters across five frames during a 12-2 victory versus Toronto.

New York OF Yoenis Cespedes is currently on the 10-day disabled list with a right hip flexor strain. Through 45 games, Arizona ranks 30th in batting average and 26th in runs scored. For the season, New York ranks 23rd in batting average and 28th in runs scored. Take New York to win easily on Sunday. Final Score Prediction, New York Mets 5-2.
