Game Preview: Mets @ Phillies

The Cardinals and Giants both won on the Mets off day, so the race for the Wild Card just got a little tighter. The Mets still control their destiny though as they head into Philly for the last series of the season.

Robert Gsellman gets the nod for the Amazin’s. He’s 3-2 over 7 games and 6 starts this year with a 2.56 ERA over 38.2 innings. The Mets needed him to log innings in his last start to save the bullpen and he did, holding the Phillies scoreless over 7.0 innings while striking out 8 for his best start of his career. In his previous start against the Phillies he allowed 4 ER over 6.0 innings. The Phillies have the following numbers against Robert:

  • Altherr 1-5

The Mets will get another look at Alec Asher who is 2-0 over 4 starts and 21.2 innings in 2016 with an ERA of 1.66.
