The Milwaukee Brewers raced out of the gates to start the season, but the month of May was a bit of a rough patch on the Brewers schedule. Since then, they’ve managed to right the ship, and haven’t lost a series over their last five. They currently hold a five game lead in the NL Central. They’re the next team on the Mets schedule, a team who’s been slumping far worse than the Brewers. The Mets have one of the worst records in the league and are 3-7 in their last ten games. Mets tickets are averaging $52.51 for the series at Citi Field, 40 percent below the Mets season average of $87.20.
6/10 MIL Marco Estrada vs. NYM Daisuke Matsuzaka | Avg. Price: $46 | Get-in Price: $10
Daisuke Matsuzaka is back in the rotation after starting the season in the bullpen for the Mets. Dice-K has pitched about as well as you can expect for a pitcher who signed a minor league deal in the offseason, but that doesn’t make him particularly exciting. The game is also the cheapest of the series with an average of $46. The get-in is pretty much right in the middle at $10.
6/11 MIL Wily Peralta vs. NYM Jacob deGrom | Avg. Price: $52.05 | Get-in Price: $8
The Mets have lost four of the five games Jacob deGrom has pitched in this season, but that hasn’t been deGrom’s fault. A rookie making his first appearance in the big leagues, deGrom has been surprisingly effective for the Mets. He has a 3.19 ERA and has made it to the seventh inning in three of his five starts. The average price of the series is up for a bit for the Wednesday game with an average price of $52.05. The get-in price is the cheapest of the series at $8.
6/12 MIL Kyle Lohse vs. NYM Jon Niese | Avg. Price: $59.47 | Get-in Price: $13
The most expensive game of the series is the final one. While there is a great pitching match, the price might have more to do with the day of the week. The average price of the game is $59.47, and the get-in price is $13. Kyle Lohse has proven to be worth the risk for the Brewers these past couple seasons, proving his resurgence in St. Louis was more than smoke and mirrors. He’s been the Brewers best pitcher this season, and is opposing Jon Niese, the Mets best pitcher this season.
