Arizona Diamondbacks vs New York Mets 4/17/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Arizona Diamondbacks will go against the New York Mets in MLB action in Citi Field, NY, on Sunday, April 17, 2022, at 1:40 PM ET. The Diamondbacks dropped 11 consecutive road games versus the Mets entering Saturday’s game in New York. Their last win in New York came in 2017, but they came back to win 3-2 on Saturday.

 

Sergio Alcantara, who is batting under .200 on the year, broke a scoreless game in the eighth inning with a two-run homer to lead Arizona to victory. Ketel Marte also had an RBI double. Zac Gellen pitched the opening four innings for the Mets, allowing no runs.

 

To support the victory, five relievers pitched the final five innings. Sean Poppen (1-0) earned the victory with 1.1 scoreless innings of work, while Mark Melancon earned his first save of the year with a perfect ninth inning.

 

The Diamondbacks only earned 21 total runs this season, despite the 3 runs in the victory. This puts him in 29th place in MLB.

 

This year, the squad is still trying to piece together runs as they look for consistent hitters in the order. Right-hander Castellanos (0-0, 5.31 ERA) makes his first appearance since replacing left-hander Caleb Smith in the rotation in the series finale.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 6 of Arizona’s last 8 matches.
  • The Arizona Diamondbacks are 2-10 SU in their last 12 matches against NY Mets.
  • Arizona is 1-11 SU in their last 12 matches on the road against the NY Mets.

Arizona Diamondbacks vs New York Mets Predictions 4/17/2022

 

The New York Mets dropped to 6-3 after a 3-2 loss on Saturday. Both OFs Brandon Nimmo and Mark Canha stayed on the COVID-19 injured list in recent days, hurting the lineup.

 

On Saturday, the squad was limited to only 5 hits in order to score its two runs. Carlos Carrasco’s second consecutive strong start was ruined by bad hitting. Carrasco threw five innings, allowing only three hits and no runs. Carrasco only surrendered one run in 10.1 innings thrown in his two appearances this season, and he continues to look like a probable steal in the rear of the pitching rotation.

 

In the eighth inning, Starling Marte hit his second home run of the year to keep the Mets in the game.

 

Due to the injury to starting pitcher Taijuan Walker, David Peterson (0-0) will make his season debut. Earlier this week, he pitched four innings of scoreless relief for Philadelphia. As a rookie, Peterson was 2-6 in 15 starts last year.

 

In 66 innings pitched, he gave up 64 hits while striking out 69 and walking 29 batters. The Mets are hoping that outfielders Canha and Nimmo will be able to play in this game.

 

  • The NY Mets are 6-3 SU in their previous 9 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 4 of the NY Mets’ last 5 matches against Arizona.
  • The NY Mets are 5-2 SU in their last 7 matches at home.

Arizona Diamondbacks vs New York Mets. The MLB pick for this game is the New York Mets. In their past 12 trips to Queens, the Diamondbacks only won once.

 

Their lineup is one of the poorest in baseball, which should aid Peterson as he makes his first start of the season. He pitched well in his only outing out of the bullpen thus far and should be able to hold off Arizona’s lineup.

 

For the Mets, it will be a matter of reviving their bats. They now rank fourth in the majors in team batting average, and they are hoping that Canha’s comeback will help them improve the bottom half of their lineup. The New York Mets will win to a predicted score of 5-2.
