After splitting a four-game series with the Padres, the Mets (58-59, 19GB) get set to open a three-game series tonight against the NL West-leading Arizona Diamondbacks (65-53).

Despite the difference in records, these are two evenly matched squads. The Diamondbacks' expected record is only two games better than the Mets'.

Both teams rely more on their offense to create wins than on their pitching staffs, so I wouldn't count on a bunch of low-scoring games this weekend.

Graphic Guide: League average is scaled to 100. Scores higher than 100 indicate performance better than league average, less than 100 indicates performance worse than league average regardless of the statistic. For example, if a team has a FIP of 110% on the graph their actual FIP is 10% better than league average.

Statistics have not been park adjusted, but are adjusted for each team's respective league.
