The Mets և Giants are like National League contenders

With less than two weeks left in the season, the New York Mets (7-3) և San Francisco Giants (7-2) have reason to believe that the National League has fewer elite teams than we thought.

Pitching has been crucial for both clubs so far, with the Giants’s 2.20 ERA being the best of the biggest as of Sunday. Even without Jacob de Grom, the Mets’ starting line-up was intact, setting a 1.07 ERA in 10 games (6 runs in 50.1 innings).

Last year, San Francisco won 107 games and NL West, but entered 2022 as a major loser, losing to rival Los Angeles Dodgers. The Mets spent a lot of money this winter, but faced legal issues after splitting last season in the heavyweight division led by World Series champions Atlanta Braves.

The Mets and Giants kick off a four-game match at City Field Stadium on Monday, a series that could boost both sides.
