New York Mets (29-42) at Philadelphia Phillies (36-39)
Matt Harvey (6-1, 2.16) vs. John Lannan (0-1, 5.49)
Kevin Fransden saved the day yesterday after the Phillies blew a 6 run lead. The bullpen really needs to step up as they have the worst ERA in all of baseball at 4.67. Even Jonathan Papelbon is struggling.
After Charlie Manuel’s rant, the Phillies offense did step it up by scoring 8 runs yesterday. Today it will be tougher to score runs with Matt Harvey on the mound. The 24-year old is one of the brightest spots the Mets have. He’s been lights out and has had previous success against Philadelphia.
Harvey will be opposed by John Lannan, who will be making his second start since coming off the disabled list.
Lineup: SS Rollins, 2B Utley, 3B M.Young, 1B Howard, LF Brown, RF D. Young, CF Revere, C Quintero, P Lannan.
