Good pitching will still beat good hitting most of the time, and the Mets will have one of their better starters toeing the rubber here in Noah Syndergaard (5-1 Jorge De La Rosa Jersey , 2.97 ERA).The 6'6" Syndergaard has earned three of his five wins over his previous four outings, giving up two runs or less in each of them. He has also been a better pitcher away from home this season, going 1-0 with a 2.84 ERA in four starts.Why the Yankees can pay on the MLB linesThe Yankees beat the Mets by two runs or more four times during their recent six-game series-winning streak, and they may need to score a lot with rookie Domingo German (2-5, 5.49 ERA) on the mound.The 25-year-old Dominican has struggled occasionally as a spot starter, but he has also pitched well other times. German has picked up both of his two wins at Yankee Stadium, where he is 2-2 with a 4.79 ERA in nine games. The most impressive statistic for him at home, though, is that opposing batters are hitting only .214 against him there. If he can hang in there versus the Mets http://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/authentic-taijuan-walker-jersey , the Yankees can win. Smart betting pickGerman has given the Yankees a chance to win in each of his past eight appearances, with them going 5-3 during that stretch, and two of the losses decided by just one run. In the third loss, he pitched one scoreless inning of relief in a 3-0 road defeat to the Philadelphia Phillies.That said, the Yankees are the better team and will win yet again. MLB betting trendsThe Mets are 8-17 in their last 25 games.The total has gone under in eight of the Mets' last 12 games.The total has gone under in four of the Yankees' last five games when playing the Mets.

"I have nothing to lose," he added. "I'm not afraid. I might as well try."Brown explained Ankiel publicly struggled with "anxiety pangs" and "yips" as a pitcher and ultimately gave it up at the professional level in 2005 Jarrod Dyson Jersey , choosing to move to the outfield. However, he has spent some of his retirement serving as a coach and mentor to those who deal with similar issues and showed himself enough to give it another try.Ankiel pitched Wednesday in a tournament featuring a number of retired major leaguers, including Chipper Jones, Jake Peavy, Roy Oswalt and Johnny Damon, and competed at a high enough level to entertain the notion of a comeback."My kids have never seen me play, never seen me pitch," Ankiel said when explaining his mindset, pet Brown. "And I feel like I'm in a better place."There was a time he appeared well on his way to a dominant pitching career in 2000 with the St. Louis Cardinals when he posted a 3.50 ERA ttp://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/authentic-brad-boxberger-jersey , 1.30 WHIP and 194 strikeouts in 175 innings with a fastball and curveball combination that was deadly for hitters.It is a testament to his will that even after his struggles, he played through the 2013 season for the Cardinals, Kansas City Royals, Atlanta Braves, Washington Nationals, Houston Astros and New York Mets. He hit .240 in his career and drilled 25 long balls in 2008 with the Cardinals.Returning nearly 15 years after Ankiel last pitched in the major leagues is an incredibly tall task, but so was going from someone who couldn't find the strike zone on the mound to a source of power in the middle of St. Louis' lineup.
