Mets Lineup

  1. RF Jeff McNeil
  2. CF Michael Conforto
  3. 1B Pete Alonso
  4. LF Dominic Smith
  5. 2B Robinson Canó
  6. C Wilson Ramos
  7. 3B Todd Frazier
  8. SS Adeiny Hechavarria
  9. P Jacob deGrom (3.27 ERA, 3.14 FIP, 30.7 K%, 36.3 Hard Hit% in 110.0 IP)

Notes: The Mets are in an unfamiliar spot entering this rubber game. They haven’t won a road series against anybody since April 1-3 (also in Miami)...Shortly before the All-Star break, deGrom passed the 1,000 career innings milestone. Among all pitchers with at least that much MLB experience, his 28.2% strikeout rate is fifth-highest all time, sandwiched between Hall of Famers Randy Johnson and Pedro Martínez.

Marlins Lineup

  1. SS Miguel Rojas
  2. 3B Neil Walker
  3. 1B Garrett Cooper
  4. RF Brian Anderson
  5. 2B Starlin Castro
  6. LF Curtis Granderson
  7. CF César Puello
  8. C Bryan Holaday
  9. P Sandy Alcantara (3.82 ERA, 4.61 FIP, 16.1 K%, 31.9 Hard Hit% in 101.1 IP)

Notes: It’s time for César Puello to start justifying his place on this team. Acquired to give the Marlins offense a boost off the bench and versus left-handers, his small sample size with the team has been ugly (.154/.267/.179, 0 HR in 45 PA). Two of his three runs batted in came via bases-loaded hit by pitches. If Puello’s bat doesn’t wake up soon, the Fish have a variety of outfield alternatives on the 40-man roster.
