These two teams have had seasons and have been in positions to make a playoff drive late in this year. Both groups have a bit of urgency as the year gets closer and closer to the ending. I anticipate a solid matchup as both teams look to acquire this show to move a step closer to making that final wild card spot.

I think that the Mets have a marginally better hitting lineup, although Both of these teams have solid hitting lineups. Alonso was dangerous this season and it showed in last nights matchup. I believe they may pull off a triumph if Arizona's pitching team can get a way to slow Alonso down on Tuesday night.

These two pitchers are solid throughout their starts this season. Gallen has put up the stats, but he's played in half the matches as Wheeler. Wheeler got a win and has a solid record. Gallen had a no decision in his start against New York as a member of the Marlins.
These two teams have gone 2-2 against each other in the summer series. Both groups are less than five matches back from the wild card spot. I feel that Arizona has got a chance to take the series lead with a win on Tuesday night. Gallen is a powerful pitcher and I like his opportunities to slow down New York. The Diamondbacks need to get the bats going, but when they can, I believe they'll win the next match of this series.
