Los Angeles Dodgers (39-35 SU, 33-41 RL, 2-8-0 O/U) vs New York Mets (31-42 SU, 32-41 RL, 4-5-1 O/U)

MLB: Sunday, June 24, Citi Field, New York, New York, 1:10 PM ET.

The Los Angeles Dodgers will be going for the series win when they take on the New York Mets in the final game of their three-game series against the Mets on Sunday afternoon.

Rich Hill, who is 1-2 with a 4.99 ERA, will get the start for the Dodgers. The Mets will counter with Jason Vargas, who is 2-6 with an 8.60 ERA.

Dodgers Trying To Close Gap In NL West

The Dodgers were able to overcome their slow start to the season and have worked their way back into contention in the NL West. The team currently sits 2.5 games behind the division leading Arizona Diamondbacks, and will be trying to reduce their deficit with a win over the Mets on Sunday.

The Dodgers will also be trying to win their third consecutive game on Sunday afternoon.

Offensively, the Dodgers have been pretty good this season. They have a .241 batting average, which is 19th in the league. Their .321 on base percentage is 11th, while their .421 slugging percentage is 9th in the league. The Dodgers have scored 344 runs this season, which is 10th in the league.

Los Angeles’ pitching has been much better than their offense, despite injuries to key starters. Opponents have a .237 batting average against the Dodgers, which is 10th in the league. Their 3.57 ERA is eighth, while their 1.23 WHIP is ninth in the league.

In his last start, Hill gave up three hits and zero earned runs in six innings, but the bullpen blew the start and the Dodgers lost to the Chicago Cubs 2-1. The Dodgers will need another solid performance from Hill to get the win on Sunday.

Mets Trying To Snap Four-Game Losing Streak

The Mets have gone from the team that was once leading the NL East to a team trying to fight off the Miami Marlins for last place in the division. Things haven’t gone very well for them lately as they find themselves in the middle of another losing streak. They will be trying to snap their four-game losing streak when they face the Dodgers on Sunday afternoon.

Offensively, New York hasn’t been very good this season. The Mets have a .233 batting average, which is 28th in the league. Their .310 on base percentage is 21st, while their .383 slugging percentage is 26th. The Mets have scored 289 runs this season, which is 25th in the league.

New York’s pitching has been a little better, but hasn‘t been very consistent this year. Opponents have a .255 batting average against the Mets, which is 22nd in the league. Their 4.23 ERA is 21st, while their 1.33 WHIP is 22nd in the league.

In his last start, Vargas gave up nine hits and seven earned runs in 2.1 innings, leading to a 10-8 loss to the Colorado Rockies. The Mets will need a much better effort from him if they want to defeat the Dodgers.

Trends

Los Angeles is:

  • 6-1 in their last 7 vs. a team with a losing record.
  • 7-0 in Hill’s last 7 starts vs. National League East.
  • 11-3 in their last 14 road games.

New York is:

  • 0-4 in their last 4 vs. National League West.
  • 3-8 in their last 11 during game 3 of a series.
  • 2-8 in Vargas’ last 10 starts.

The Dodgers have been great on the road in their last 14 games, and have dominated the NL East when Hill starts. The Mets have struggled against NL West teams, and have also struggled in Vargas’ last 10 starts.
