Mets vs. Giants Channel, Game Time, Preview

Looking for Mets vs. Giants channel and game time information? No problem, we've got you covered.

October hasn't started until the MLB Playoffs begin. Well, it's that time of year again. The New York Mets are set to take on the San Francisco Giants in a winner-take-all one game playoff. This game features two of the best pitchers in the majors, as New York sends Noah Syndergaard to the mound to face off against Madison Bumgarner. Look below for the Mets vs. Giants channel and other information.

Game Time: 8:00 p.m. E.T.

Channel: ESPN

Both the Mets and Giants enter tonight's contest with 87-75 regular season records, but the Mets garnered home-field advantage by winning the season series 4-3.

Mets vs. Giants Prediction:

How good is Madison Bumgarner in the playoffs? According to Tim Kurkjian, he has the lowest road ERA of any pitcher in baseball history with at least 25 innings pitched. His ERA? 0.60.

Not impressed? Let's put that into context. The next five members in the list are Bob Gibson, Mariano Rivera, Sandy Koufax, Lefty Grove, and Christy Mathewson. In Bumgarner's seven road appearances in the postseason, the Giants have won seven games.

So the Giants are going to win?

Not so fast!

The Mets are sending Thor to the mound. Well, his real name is Noah Syndergaard, but still, look at that hair!

Syndergaard enters this must-win game with a 2.06 ERA and 47 strikeouts in his last seven starts. In two games against the Giants this year, Syndergaard held San Francisco to a .159 batting average. That's terrible if you're the Giants, but great if you're the Mets.

Okay, okay, here's the prediction.

This will be a pitcher's duel, which surprises no one. Bumgarner is too good to bet against in this situation, even with how well Syndergaard has pitched against the Giants.
