Play Rating:
3% – (901) New York Mets at (902) Pittsburgh Pirates Total Under 9.0 (-123) C Scott (RHP), M Keller (RHP) Must Start

(3%) UNDER mets/pirates. Keller wasn't his best last time out but he's been extremely solid all season. He's got a 3.02 ERA and 1.16 WHIP in eight home starts. Eight of his past 11 home starts have stayed below the total. Keller hasn't faced the Mets yet this season but he did once last year. That game finished with a final score of 2-1. Keller allowed just two his through seven complete innings. Scott, the Mets #2 prospect, retuned to the big leagues last week. He didn't allow a hit the first time through the batting order and was still doing great until giving up a 3-run HR in the sixth inning. As Mets manager Carlos Mendoza noted: “I was trying to squeeze one more hitter out of him.” Mendoza went on to say this of Scott: “He was really good again. He was on the attack. The fastball was playing. This is an aggressive team, and he didn’t back down. He was on the attack. He got quick outs when needed. So yeah, I thought he was really good -- other than that pitch." I'm expecting a relatively well-pitched affair with a final score which stays below the generous total.
