Washington Nationals vs. New York Mets Prediction

The Mets will pitch Tylor Megill for a series-clincher. He's got a 4-1 record with a 2.43 ERA to start the season and wasn't even in the starting rotation until Jacob deGrom got hurt before the season began. In the last 30 days, Megill has had a 3.61 xFIP along with 26.8% strikeouts and 7.1% walks. Washington's left-handed bats like Juan Soto, Josh Bell, and Yadiel Hernandez have potential against righties like Megill. But other than those three, it's quiet in that projected lineup for Washington. Meanwhile, Aaron Sanchez will take the hill for Washington. Sanchez has an 8.56 ERA to begin the season. But he really hasn't been terrible. If you look at his analytics, he's been much better. Sanchez has an xFIP of 4.65 with 15% strikeouts and 5% walks. He’s also getting 57.4% ground balls and allowing under 15% of line drives. Don’t be fooled by Sanchez’s ERA. Again, he hasn’t been that bad. The right-hander has been a bit worse against righties, however, allowing a .446 wOBA and ISO of .172 to righties. But that’s just due to low strikeouts and balls being hit in play. The Mets are currently striking out 19.6% of the time using their projected lineup against righties. However, New York is also hitting nearly 45% ground balls with the same lineup and if balls are hit into play, you'd like to think it’ll result in easy ground ball outs a lot of the time. The Mets have more threats in their lineup but overall, Sanchez is going to see some positive regression while Megill is going to continue pitching at a high level. Take the under in the first five innings.
