Philadelphia Phillies (3-5) vs. New York Mets (6-2)Cole Hamels (0-1, 5.06) vs. Mike Pelfrey (0-0, 4.76)Time: 1:35 PM, Citizens Bank Park TV: WPHL Weather: Sunny, 70′s Media: Twitter and FacebookThe Phillies will look to avoid getting swept by their rivals the Mets this afternoon, as they take the field at 1:35 on a sunny day in Philadelphia. Cole Hamels will take the mound for the Phils, and he’s coming off a performance that we at Phillies Nation witnessed first hand on April 9 that wasn’t exactly Hamels-esque. He gave up four runs–three of them earned–before getting the hook in the sixth.He’ll look to bounce back today, but if his career stats against the today’s Mets lineup are any indication, he might have some trouble. His biggest nemesis seems to be Scott Hairston, who is 8-20 with three home runs against Hamels in his career. Jason Bay is 4-10 against Hamels, but with four strikeouts. David Wright has faced Hamels the most out of any Met, and he has a .931 OPS when faci...

Philadelphia Phillies storyline: doctored baseball

Gee, How ‘Bout Those Mets? Two Bombs In 6-1 Win Over Braves

Ike Davis with a three-run homerun to break the game open, and after Jason Bay robbed the Braves of a homerun, hit one himself deep in center field for a solo shot and an insurance run. Broken fingers seem to be helping the Mets. Dillon Gee had a great start this afternoon allowing only one run on four...

Dickey Is Closing In On A Quality Achievement

Shhh.  Don’t tell anyone.  But R.A. Dickey is quietly approaching a few Mets greats in the team’s record books. With last night’s 5-2 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies, R.A. Dickey recorded his 14th consecutive quality start (minimum of six innings pitched with no more than three earned runs allowed), dating back to last year.  It is currently the longest such streak...

Under The Radar: David Wright is about to have the most RBI in Mets history

Darryl Strawberry had 733 RBI as a member of the New York Mets. David Wright has had 730 RBI as a member of the Mets. David Wright will tie Strawberry’s Mets record any day, and he will probably beat the record that same day or the day after. By the way, David Wright is the Mets’ all-time doubles leader with 281. Ed Kranepool is second with 225. I feel as if the fact that Wright...
