New York vs Philadelphia: Mets Ace Matt Harvey Seeks Sixth Straight Victory
New York Mets: Matt Harvey owns the Philadelphia Phillies
Not only is Mets ace Matt Harvey (5-0 ERA 2.41) one of the best pitchers in the game today, but he has also owned Philadelphia during his young career. Harvey is looking for his sixth straight win to open the season and that would push his lifetime record against the Philllies to 6-0 and with one no-decision. The “Dark Night” went six innings allowing three runs on five hits and stuck out eight as the Mets hung on for a 6-5 win over the Phillies in New York on April 14, 2015.
Philadelphia Phillies: Largely living up to their MLB preseason longshot forecast
Tied with Colorado as the longshots to win the 2015 MLB World Series back in March, Philadelphia is living up to their lowly expectations. Milwaukee (9-20) is the only team with a worse record than the 10-19 mark the Phillies have posted. Philadelphia is 2-7 over their last nine games and just lost two straight to the Braves by a combined 16-5 final count. After allowing six runs and ten hits during a 7-0 loss to Miami in his last start, LHP Cole Hamels (1-3 ERA 4.14) gets the call for Philly.
Mets vs Phillies MLB Prediction: Prior to missing all of the 2014 season with an elbow injury, Harvey went 3-0 allowing just one run on eight hits over 20 innings pitched against Philadelphia during the 2013 MLB season. We fully expect that Harvey will continue his utter domination of the Phillies tonight. Very tempted by the run line, we will suppress our need for greed and back New York with a 700 unit wager on the money line price posted at the Bodog online sportsbook.
