The San Francisco Giants travel to New York on Monday to play a 4-game series against the Mets. Both teams have won their first 3 series of the season so one of them will have their first losing series of the season.

San Francisco Giants

The Giants get here with a 7-2 record after sweeping the Guardians in their last series. The team is now averaging 4.38 runs and allowing 2.38 runs per game. Brandon Belt leads the team with 3 home runs and batting for an average of .345. Estrada has 8 RBI.

Logan Webb leads the pitching staff with a 1-0 record, 10 strikeouts and a 1.29 ERA.

Probable Pitcher:

Alex Cobb (1-0, 3.60 ERA) will be on the mound for the Giants in the 1st game of the series. Cobb got the win in Tuesday's 13-2 victory over the Padres, allowing two runs on four hits and two walks with 10 strikeouts in five innings. He hasn't pitch against the Mets since 2018 where he allowed only 1 run in 6 innings and struck out 7.

New York Mets

The Mets get here with a 7-3 record and 2-1 at home this season. The team is averaging 5.11 runs while allowing 2.78 runs per game. Jeff McNeil leads the team with a .344 batting average while Pete Alonso leads the team in RBI's with 14 and 3 home runs.

New York’s pitching has been very good, Tylor Megill has 2 wins already and 11 strike outs with an 0.00 ERA. Chris Bassit also has 2 wins and a 0.75 ERA and 14 strikeouts.

Probable Pitcher: 

Tylor Megill (2-0, 0.00 ERA) will start for the Mets in the 1st game of the series. Megill picked up the win in Tuesday's 2-0 victory over the Phillies, scattering three hits over 5.1 scoreless innings. He struck out five without walking a batter. He threw 49 of 76 pitches for strikes and has has yet to allow a run through his first 10.1 innings this season. 


San Francisco are 5-0 SU in their last 5 games.

San Francisco are 6-1 SU in their last 7 games against NY Mets.

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of NY Mets' last 5 games against San Francisco.

NY Mets are 6-2 SU in their last 8 games at home.


These are two of the best teams in the National league. The Giants are on a 5 game winning streak but they'll be facing Tyler Megill who hasn't allowed any runs so far. The Mets are 6-2 as favorites so far and have won 6 of their last 8 games at home. The Mets offense has been great so far and with Megill on the mound I think they'll win the 1st game of the series.
