After completing a four-game sweep over the Arizona Diamondbacks, the New York Mets will face a juggernaut of an opponent in the form of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Unfortunately, the Dodgers are 3-1 against the Mets so far this season with one of those wins including a huge comeback in Los Angeles.

Noah Syndergaard will be taking the hill today for New York and with this big game coming up, there seems to be more focus and attention on who will be catching Syndergaard than the actual game itself.

Syndergaard has taken the mound 15 times this season with Wilson Ramos behind the dish and has posted an ERA of 5.09 while also posting an ERA just north of 2, to the combination of Nido and Rivera. Overall, the tall right hander owns a 10-7 record while posting a 4.06 ERA and striking out 176 batters in 175 innings pitched.

New York Mets outfielder Michael Conforto had reached a personal milestone last night when he hit his 30th home run of the season. Conforto admitted that he tried to reach the 30 home run mark before and is glad he’s done so during this 2019 season but still understands that the team’s goal is far more important. The 26 year old has been hitting .295/.368/.557 in his last 15 games.

Clayton Kershaw will hit the bump for the Los Angeles Dodgers tonight and there isn’t much we don’t know about the future Hall of Fame’r however this is interesting, Kershaw has only pitched more than six innings in his prior four starts just once. Overall, Kershaw is 13-5 with a 3.06 ERA, a 1.05 WHIP and has struck out 171 batters in 159 innings.
