If the Mets win, it was probably because:
Syndergaard threw 1000 MPH. The Mets scored early, maybe Cespedes went deep. Reyes kept getting on base. The Giants struck out, left runners stranded and hit into easy double plays. Even Posey couldn’t handle Thor’s velocity, the Giants were late all day.
If the Giants win, it was probably because:
Bumgarner pitched 8-9 shutout or one run innings. He dealt. He got through the first inning. The Giants managed some small ball runs. They reached on grounders, flares to the opposite field, WALKED and stole bases. Buster and Pence started their key rally. Citi Field got silent, fast.
I guess we are about to find out. Either way, you can probably safely take the under in this pitchers’ duel.
