The New York Mets (51-55) battered the Philadelphia Phillies (46-60) last night in a game that featured starting pitchers who could be on the move. The two teams continue their series tonight at Citi Field as trade winds continue to surround both of these teams. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 pm.
The Mets will send right hander Dillon Gee (4-3, 3.49 ERA). Gee is trying to get back on track after two poor starts to kick off the second half. Gee had a rough time in his last outing against the Milwaukee Brewers, allowing six runs in five innings in a loss last Thursday. The Phillies will counter with lefty Cole Hamels (5-5, 2.72 ERA), who is one of the many Phillies' players who is on the trade block. Hamels picked up a win in his last outing with a fine performance, allowing one run in eight innings against the San Francisco Giants last Thursday.
New York Mets Lineup:
- RF Curtis Granderson
- 2B Daniel Murphy
- 3B David Wright
- 1B Eric Campbell
- LF Chris Young
- C Travis d'Arnaud
- CF Juan Lagares
- SS Wilmer Flores
- SP Dillon Gee
- The Mets will go with a right handed heavy lineup against Hamels. As a result, Eric Campbell will start at first base and hit cleanup.
- Hamels faces the Mets for the fourth time this season. Hamels is 7-14 with a 4.38 ERA in 29 career starts against them.
- Phillies' shortstop Jimmy Rollins has done well against Gee in his career, going 11 for 22 against him.
