The Oakland Athletics and the New York Mets will both be gunning for a victory on Friday when they meet at Citi Field.

Blackburn received his second no-decision in three starts last Saturday since being recalled from Triple-A Nashville on July 1. The 23-year-old notched his third straight quality start after allowing three runs on five hits in six innings against Cleveland. Blackburn permitted four walks to drive up his pitch count after issuing just one in each of his previous two outings.

Matz surrendered four runs in the first inning against the Rockies and allowed all four batters he faced in the second to reach before getting the hook. “I feel like I wasn’t really sharp. I was leaving balls right over the middle of the plate and they were hitting it,” Matz said of his shortest appearance in 35 big-league starts. Matz owns a 2-1 mark with a 2.92 ERA in four career interleague starts, but he’ll face the Athletics for the first time.

Oddsmakers currently have the Mets listed as 161-moneyline favorites versus the Athletics, while the game’s total is sitting at 9½.

Left-hander Steven Matz is hoping to turn the corner from a disastrous stretch, and the same can be said for the New York Mets. The 26-year-old aims to rebound from the worst start of his career on Friday as the Mets open a three-game interleague series against the Oakland Athletics at Citi Field.

Matz answered back-to-back seven-inning scoreless outings with a pair of brutal results, yielding five runs on seven hits in 4 1/3 innings in a 6-0 loss to St. Louis on July 9 before getting scorched on Sunday for a career high-tying seven runs on nine hits in one-plus frame versus Colorado. The latter contest began a three-game losing skid for the Mets, who responded with back-to-back victories over St. Louis to salvage a split of the four-game set. Rajai Davis recorded his second consecutive 2-for-4 performance with a run scored on Wednesday as Oakland posted its eighth win in 12 outings with a 7-2 romp over visiting Tampa Bay. The Athletics, however, took a cross-country flight and will start a seven-game trek looking to stop their woes on the road, where they have won a majors-worst 15 games.
