Yankees vs Mets Probable Pitchers

While enjoying what has been in many ways a breakout season, the Yankees are still only 9-10 in the 29-year-old Montgomery’s starts in 2022 — nine of which have been of the quality variety. The lefty had an especially strong stretch between late May and mid-June, sporting a 3-0 record and 1.95 ERA in 32.1 innings over five starts. Since then, he’s gone 0-1 with a 4.29 ERA in 35.2 innings over six starts.

Jordan Montgomery having just 3 wins in 19 starts and a 3.24 ERA on the team with the best record in baseball is truly bizarre. 9 wins in 49 starts in the last two years.

Montgomery was a tough-luck loser in his last time out against the Astros, going 6.1 innings and allowing  seven hits, two earned runs and a walk while striking out eight in a 3-2 defeat.

Meantime, the high expectations Walker has had throughout his career are coming together this season. The 29-year-old former first-rounder has a sparkling 7-2 mark and 2.55 ERA. Like his counterpart on Tuesday though, the Mets haven’t necessarily been lights out in his turns — going 9-7 with Walker on the bump. He’s tossed nine quality starts, including seven in a row.

The Yankees had an off-day on Monday after taking two of three against Baltimore on the road following the All-Star break. The star of the three-game set — as he has been all season — was AL MVP favorite Aaron Judge. The 30-year-old slugger went 8-for-13 against the O’s, while blasting three big flies at Camden Yards. The performance capped an impressive week.

Meantime, Pete Alonso has been nearly as amazing as Judge has this season for the Mets. The 27-year-old former NL Rookie of the Year — nicknamed the “Polar Bear” — has hit 25 homers and an MLB-leading 82 RBI (one more than Judge), while slashing .260/.358/.583. His go-ahead, three-run blast off fellow All-Star Joe Musgrove helped New York salvage the series against the Padres in an 8-5 win on Sunday.

Pete Alonso had his 5th game this season with 2+ XBH & 4+ RBI, becoming just the 3rd Mets player to do this in a single season. He joins Robin Ventura (1999) & Dave Kingman (1976).

Four other players — led by Francisco Lindor’s 16 long balls — have smashed at least nine dingers in the Mets’ lineup. This is an opportunistic group that will be motivated to make a statement against its crosstown rivals — while also keeping the Braves at bay.

The Mets currently have +800 odds to win the Fall Classic, while the Yankees are favorites at +340 in the World Series odds.

Yankees vs Mets Prediction

The long ball could be the difference in this one — with Montgomery surrendering 13 homers and Walker has allowed only four this season.

The Bronx Bombers have been so good this season. But with Atlanta pushing New York in the division race, the intangibles favor the home team.

Pick: Mets ML (-115)
