The Houston Astros and New York Mets will be wrapping up their quick two-game series on Wednesday after the Astros rocked the Mets at home in game one. Houston put up a total of 9 runs in the blowout victory for their ninth win in the last twelve games. It was another lackluster performance from the Mets at the plate and they have now lost all three of their meetings with the Astros in the last week. Wednesday afternoon is their last chance to salvage a win but it’s going to be tough sledding against Justin Verlander. The veteran is 9-3 on the season with a 2.22 ERA and given how bad this matchup has been for the Mets recently there’s no reason to believe they’ll turn things around in this series finale.
