The overall offensive statistics for both of these teams does not impress, but it’s early in the season and there have been signs from both teams that they may be turning it around. The Mets have put 4 or more runs on the board in 3 of their last 4 games and have 30 hits over their last 3 games. Miami has faced strong pitching overall since their opener making it difficult for any team to shine at the plate, but they did get to the Braves’ pitching for 14 runs in their last two so that may be a thing of the past.
