It’s make-or-break time for the Mets, who need wins and some help for playoff hopes to stay alive.
The Phillies are sending some of their best arms to the mound at Citi Field this weekend, starting with Zack Wheeler on Friday night and the frustratingly inconsistent Aaron Nola on Saturday evening.
A national television audience will get a double-dose of this series this weekend, with Saturday night’s game on FOX and Sunday’s affair being on ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball. Will the Mets represent well? We’ll see.
