The Subway Series starts tonight with plenty of fanfare. It’s been a long time since the Yankees and Mets were both highly competitive teams and it’s great news for the city. The starting matchup tonight is between Jordan Montgomery and Taijuan Walker, so you can understand why the total is so low. Both starters have been great on the mound this year, both with an ERA close to 3 and WHIP under 1.1.
But what this really comes down to is there are far more situations where this ends up going high scoring than the alternative. Both teams have excellent bats, the Yankees scoring the most in the league at 5.36 per game and the Mets not far behind at 6 th in the league with 4.66 per game. The Yankees score actually even more runs away from home as well, at 5.46 per game. Both teams take an extraordinarily high number of runs to get beat on a normal basis. That doesn’t become any less true against better teams.
