The Mets close another disappointing series at Citi Field.

There’s limping to the finish line and there’s whatever the Mets are doing right now.

After taking two of three against the Yankees over the weekend of 9/11, the Mets have lost six straight and will spend another October free to attend their favorite NFL team’s games.

The Phillies will send their big trade deadline acquisition, Kyle Gibson, to the mound in the finale of this three-game series at Citi Field. The Mets will counter with a starter they, too, acquired: Rich Hill.
