Padres vs Mets Probable Pitchers

Joe Musgrove (8-2, 2.42) is scheduled to start for the Padres against Carlos Carrasco (10-4, 4.27). Musgrove, who has +900 NL Cy Young odds, pitched one scoreless inning in the All-Star Game on Tuesday in Los Angeles while Carrasco will be working on nine days of rest.

Musgrove vs Carrasco

2.42 ERA 4.27
3.17 xERA 3.96
0.97 WHIP 1.33
4.43 SO/W 3.85

Musgrove struck out two and walked one for the NL All-Stars. However, he is 0-2 with a 5.04 ERA in his last four starts after beginning the season with eight straight wins.

The fans in Chavez Ravine didn’t seem happy to see Musgrove.

Though he did not factor in the decision in his last turn on July 13, Musgrove was roughed up by the Rockies in Colorado. He surrendered five runs on nine hits in five innings while striking out four and walking none.

Musgrove is just 1-4 in his career against the Mets in five games (four starts) with a 5.63 ERA. He lost in his only career appearance at Citi Field, giving up three runs in 6.1 innings in a start last season.

Musgrove has a 5-1 road record in nine starts in 2022 and a 2.59 ERA. He is 5-2 with a 2.70 ERA in 11 starts at night. The Padres are 12-4 when Musgrove pitches.

Carrasco is having a strong July, going 2-0 with a 1.56 ERA in three starts.

He pitched six shutout innings to beat the Cubs on July 14 in Chicago in his previous outing. Carrasco yielded five hits with six strikeouts and two walks.

Carrasco faced the Padres for the first time in his career on June 6 at San Diego and got the win as he allowed two runs in seven innings.

Citi Field has been friendly to Carrasco this season as he has a 6-1 record and 3.59 ERA on 10 starts in Flushing Meadows. At night, he is 5-2 with a 5.09 ERA in seven starts. The Mets are 11-7 when Carrasco gets the ball.

Padres vs Mets Betting Outlook

Manny Machado hit a two-run home run in the sixth inning Saturday to account for all the Padres’ scoring and San Diego hung on for the win. The Fighting Friars had just four hits.

Rookie shortstop C.J. Abrams was a late scratch from the Padres’ lineup because of a strained biceps. Center fielder Trent Grisham left the game in the eighth inning after colliding with Mets pitcher Chris Bassitt at first base.

Catcher Tomas Nido returned to the Mets’ lineup after being removed from Friday’s game with a bruised left hand. New York added catching depth by trading with the Pittsburgh Pirates for Michael Perez on Saturday.

Nido had the chance to be the hero with the Mets trailing 2-1 in the ninth when he stepped to the plate with runners on the corners and two outs. However, Nido popped out to end the game.

Pete Alonso had three hits for New York and J.D. Davis knocked in the only run.

A day earlier, the Mets got Vogelbach from the Pirates in a separate deal. He did not play Saturday in his first day in uniform.

The Padres lead the season series 4-1 and hold a slim 26-24 advantage over the Mets since 2015.

Musgrove has faltered in July following a strong start to the season. Considering Carrasco’s success at home and his strong July, the pitcher known as “Cookie” seems like a sweet play.

Pick: Mets -118 ML
