The Mets continue their current four-game series with the Phillies Saturday. And yes, the man himself is taking the mound.

The Mets commenced their four-game series against the Phillies with a Friday doubleheader at Citi Field. After winning a 2-1 thriller in extra innings in Game One, the Mets were on the opposite end of an extra-inning matchup in Game Two (the score of the second meeting was also 2-1).

They’re sitting atop the NL East by four games, but for the Amazins, a Saturday afternoon win over Philadelphia would still be crucial.

Luckily, the man himself — Jacob deGrom — is coming to the mound.
