Philadelphia Phillies vs New York Mets 5/27-5/29 2022

The Mets will look to rebound after back to back disappointing losses to the San Francisco Giants when they welcome the Philadelphia Phillies to town for a Memorial Weekend NL East showdown! They will also look to avoid losing three games in a row for the first time this year. 

Phillies Record: 21-24

Mets Record: 29-17

Friday’s Starters:

Zach Eflin 1-3, 3.65 ERA vs Carlos Carrasco 4-1, 3.50 ERA

Saturday’s Starters: 

Zack Wheeler 3-3, 3.38 ERA vs Taijuan Walker 2-0, 2.70 ERA

Sunday’s Starters:

Kyle Gibson 3-2, 3.94 ERA vs TBA

What to Watch:

The Mets pitching staff will again be put to the test against a really great Phillies offense with the likes of Bryce Harper, Rhys Hoskins, Nick Castellanos and many more! They will have to do a lot better against this lineup after giving up 22 runs in two games combined against the San Francisco Giants. The Mets offense though has been great all year long and Francisco Lindor has been tearing it up as he went 8-for-26 on the Mets seven game road trip driving in 11 runs and hitting two home runs during that stretch. He will definitely be someone to watch out for to see if he can continue his recent hot streak.

Who Wins the Series:

The Mets and Phillies have played three series already this year and the Mets have taken all three of them. I have that trend will contining in this series. The Phillies have been struggling of late and the Mets have had their number all season long going 6-3 against them this year. I think the Mets will turn it around and snap their two game slide and take two out of three against their rival.
