What looked like was going to be a close one turned into a blowout for the Mets.
If the Mets’ bats are moving just like that down the stretch, you might want to pen them into the postseason. The crime is their huge question mark, that is an inconsistent unit for them from 2019. Pitching wise, it is hard to bet against the spinning that they must throw at hitters.
The Royals move on with a trip to Baltimore to get a meaningless series from the Orioles. Meaningless in the feeling that this game has no influence on the postseason. It is essentially a glorified spring training game, with the Royals and Orioles taking a peek at a few of their younger gift. They searching for a 2020 lineup.

John Means is attempting to keep it together down the stretch. He was pitching so well this year, particularly for a beginner, but Means has recently discovered that beating big league hitting isn’t likely to be that easy all of the time. This is a marathon for a good deal of young pitchers who aren’t utilised to pitching this considerably against the best hitters on the planet. Means was throttled in his most recent outings, each of which came from the Yankees.
So, he won’t have to confront a lineup like the Yankees here, but his confidence has been shaken because of them. Means allowed 10 earned runs in 7.1 innings of play, with all the Yanks winning by dozens of 14-2 and 8-3. He was also fighting three outings ago against the Diamondbacks.
Means yielded 6 hits and 3 earned runs in 3.1 innings. He has not made it past 3 innings since July 19th from the Red Sox. This will be his first appearance at the Royals in his career. Means should be getting a lot of run support from Jorge Lopez tonight, so that he may not need a stellar performance for a Baltimore triumph Monday. We all know he probably isn’t likely to find much assistance from the bullpen,” who are dead last in the majors with a 6.08 ERA. Lopez will be hunting just his second win of the year tonight at Camden Yards.
Lopez has had opportunities to stick in a turning because 2015, however, was never able to find the job done. Nothing has ever changed in 2019 due to himas he seems like a man who belongs to the minors. Lopez enters Monday with a 6.51 ERA and 1.55 WHIP. He’s gotten punished for a 15.75 ERA, 2.62 WHIP, also .511 OBA within his past three starts.
Lopez has spent all his time from the bullpen this season and has been encouraged in his latest look to begin from the Tigers. He had been lost as he got exposed to 4 earned runs in 1.1 innings. Baltimore are hitting .429 using a .500 OBP in seven at-bats from Lopez. The 26-year-old probably isn’t going to suddenly find out it in Baltimore tonight. This looks like a nice spot to get an OVER ticket to cash.
