Slumping Mets Return Home to Face Surging Giants

The recent difficulties of the Mets.

The New York Mets hope to end their run of bad luck as they come back to play against the high-flying San Francisco Giants in their first game of a three-game series at home on Friday night. The Mets are planning to start Christian Scott (0-2, 4.32 ERA) as their pitcher, while the Giants will have Kyle Harrison (4-1, 3.60 ERA) as their pitcher.

After having a day off on Thursday, the Mets are facing difficulties following a disappointing series where they were swept by the Cleveland Guardians. Since April 20, they have a record of 9-20 after squandering a three-run lead on Wednesday. Despite hitting home runs by Pete Alonso, Jeff McNeil, and Harrison Bader, the Mets couldn’t hold onto the lead, leading to their second consecutive game with three home runs resulting in a loss. This season, they are the only team to hit three home runs in each of two consecutive losses.

Mets outfielder Brandon Nimmo stated that they are aiming to achieve victory daily, but it seems their efforts are not yielding success. It is our responsibility to discover alternative methods to accomplish it. At this moment, we are simply being defeated. That is essentially everything there is to it.

Giants’ Recent Success

In the meantime, the Giants just wrapped up an impressive victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates, with each game seeing a comeback of four runs or more. This is the first time since 1999 that all three games in a series were won by teams coming back from deficits. The Giants overcame two four-run deficits on Thursday to secure a 7-6 victory, bringing their season record to 25-26.

“A complete team win (in) both games,” manager Bob Melvin said after the Giants’ latest victory. “There are just so many things to love and guys to feel really good about across the board. To win these two games, it took everybody.”

Pitching Matchup

In his most recent start on May 17, Scott allowed four runs over four innings in the Mets’ 8-0 loss to the Miami Marlins. Harrison, on the other hand, earned a win last Saturday by giving up three runs over five innings in the Giants’ 14-4 victory over the Colorado Rockies. This will be the first time Scott faces the Giants and Harrison faces the Mets.

Key Players and Performances

The Mets must figure out how to turn their strong hitting into victories. Even though they have been facing challenges lately, Alonso, McNeil, and Bader have demonstrated promise with their ability to hit home runs. The Mets need to back up their strong power-hitters with reliable pitching and steady hitting from all players in the lineup.

Conversely, the Giants have been showing impressive strength and collaboration. Their tenacity was showcased in the series against the Pirates through their skill in making comebacks. The Giants have been able to fight their way back into games by having players who step up in key moments, showing a never-give-up mindset.

Game Outlook

The Mets are desperate to turn their season around and will be counting on Scott to give a solid start. They need to capitalize on their power- hitting and ameliorate their overall game to secure a win. For the Giants, maintaining their flexible play and continuing to build on their recent success will be crucial. With Harrison on the mound, they will look to keep the Mets’ hitters in check and take advantage of any openings that come their way.

The initial match of the series is anticipated to be a fierce battle between two teams at distinct stages of their respective seasons. The Mets aim to stop losing consecutively, while the Giants strive to continue winning and achieve a .500 record.
