Published on:

The bookies need to be on their toes late Saturday with Arizona seeing better than 80% of the action on the money line as a -172 favorite.  This one opened as low as -150 at some books.

Arizona has won 6 of the last 10 games in this series overall while the Mets are actually 5-13 in the last 18 meetings.

PITCHING MATCHUP: Mets LH Steven Matz (2-4, 3.53 ERA) vs. Diamondbacks LH Patrick Corbin (6-2, 3.21)

Matz will be making his first start since last Saturday as he was pushed back two days due to a blister on his left middle finger. The 27-year-old New Yorker did not factor in the decision against the New York Yankees last time out,  Matz has surrendered six runs over 10 frames in two career turns versus Arizona

Corbin was fortunate to come away with a no-decision against Pittsburgh on Monday after surrendering five runs on seven hits and three walks in 5 1/3 innings.  Corbin is 1-3 with a 3.75 ERA in eight career games (seven starts) against the Mets

Mets are 0-5 in their last 5 games vs. a left-handed starter.

The Mets are 1-6 in Matz’s last 7 starts vs. National League West, 1-4 in his last 5 starts following a Quality Start in his last appearance and 0-4 in his last 4 starts with 6 days of rest.

The Diamondbacks are 10-4 in Corbin’s last 14 home starts
