- My selection is on New York first five innings over Atlanta at 7:10 pm et on Friday.
We’ve had some success backing the Mets in the first five innings in recent games and I won’t hesitate to go back to the well again on Friday as they hand the ball to Taijuan Walker against Ian Anderson of the Braves.
Anderson has arguably been the weak link in the Braves otherwise terrific rotation this season. He checks in with a 4.24 FIP and 1.51 WHIP on the campaign, yielding an average of 5.08 runs per nine innings.
Mets starter Taijuan Walker is having an outstanding season, entering Friday’s game with a 3.35 FIP and 1.13 WHIP while allowing less than 2.9 runs per nine innings.
The issue with backing the Mets for the full game is their bullpen. They’ve struggled in that department lately with their ‘pen posting a collective 5.83 ERA and 1.30 WHIP over the last seven games (entering last night’s action). Take New York first five innings (8*).
