Philadelphia Phillies vs New York Mets Match Preview and Free Picks
The Philadelphia Phillies have a shot at their first series win in over a month when they play the second of three straight at the New York Mets on Saturday. A solo homer by Rhys Hoskins in the top of the eighth inning was the difference in the Phillies' 4-3 win to begin the set Friday night.
The victory left Philadelphia with an 11-18 record since it swept a four-game series with Miami from Aug. 2-5, and it pulled the club to within 2 1/2 games of first-place Atlanta in the National League East. Carlos Santana had a two-run blast for the Phillies in Friday's win and he is hitting .333 with eight RBIs during a nine-game hitting streak.
Santana is 2-for-4 with a walk in his career against hard-throwing right-hander Noah Syndergaard, who starts for the Mets on Saturday opposite Zach Eflin. New York managed three hits - including solo homers by Jay Bruce and Dominic Smith - in the series opener as it fell to 12-25 in one-run games.
