The Arizona Diamondbacks and the New York Mets will meet up on the Major League Baseball circuit to continue their series Tuesday. And no Met has ever won consecutive Cy Young awards.

NY is six games over.500 the rest of the time. Check out our MLB Public Betting Page for the latest updates. The Mets out-hit Arizona 9-3 in that one as well. Nick Ahmed ended the game 1-for-4 with an RBI. NY is 6-2 in Wheeler's last eight starts and 7-2 in his last nine home starts.

The Mets' offense was powered by rookie sensation Pete Alonso, who went 2 for 4 at the plate with two home runs and two RBIs. Paul Sewald took the loss in relief as he gave up one earned run on one hit with no strikeouts or walks in one-third of an inning.

NY also got a strong showing from Jacob deGrom, who tallied 11 strikeouts in seven innings of work while only giving up three hits.

The D-backs are 4-0 in their last four series openers. Arizona is 5-1 in Gallen's last six starts and 5-1 in his last six on grass.

The Mets are 3-14 in their last 17 deGrom starts at home versus a team with a winning record. At the end, NY came away with a 3-1 victory.

Over on the Mets' side, they're going with Zack Wheeler in the Tuesday start. "It's really unbelievable what this guy has been able to do the last two years". "I get to see it day-in and day-out".
