After getting blown out in Game 1, the New York Mets rallied to beat the San Diego Padres in Game 2 and stave off elimination. New York will host San Diego again tonight in a win-or-go-home match for both teams.

Padres vs Mets Prediction & Pick

New York was the only Wild Card team to avoid getting swept on Saturday, earning its first postseason win since 2015 with a 7-3 victory over San Diego.

Both games have been lopsided affairs thus far, with the Padres taking Game 1 by a 7-1 score. With the pressure on both teams, I think we see a close, low-scoring affair in Game 3. The Padres have the edge in the pitching matchup, but the Mets have the better lineup and should scratch out just enough runs to prevail.

Final Score Prediction: Mets: 4 | Padres: 3
