The New York Mets and Miami Marlins square off on Friday, June 26 with first pitch set for 12:05 p.m. ET. The game takes place at loanDepot Park in Miami, FL and will be available to watch on Peacock. David Peterson (4-1, 3.18 ERA) will get the start for the Mets while Daniel Castano (0-1, 2.57 ERA) will step on the mound for the Marlins.
New York (47-26) will go for the sweep today after defeating the Marlins in back-to-back games that both ended 5-3. Yesterday’s victory was highlighted by the slugging of Pete Alonso, who blasted two home runs in the game to lead his team to victory. One of those was the go-ahead shot to break a 3-3 tie in the top of the eighth and the team would get an insurance run in the ninth when Brandon Nimmo brought James McCann home off a double.
Miami (32-38) trailed 3-0 midway through the action before a two-run bomb by Jesus Sanchez and a solo shot by Bryan de la Cruz evened the score. Mets pitching would put their foot down from that point forward as the Marlins wouldn’t get a single runner on base for the rest of the afternoon.

Odds, picks & predictions
Run Line: Mets -1.5 +115, Marlins +1.5 -135
Run total: 8.5
Moneyline odds: Mets -145, Marlins +125
Moneyline pick: Mets -145
Easy choice to go with the Mets to complete the sweep this afternoon. As long as Peterson keeps his runs allowed to a minimum in six innings, the New York should be in a position to come away with a close victory once again.
Player prop pick: Jazz Chisholm over 0.5 RBI (+185)
Chisholm is 3-7 at the plate this series but has yet to register an RBI. We’ll say that he’ll make a minor contribution to the final score and drive one in this afternoon.
