Preview: Phillies look to build off last night’s comeback win with Zack Wheeler on the bump
The Phillies won a thriller in South Philadelphia last night, scoring 5-runs in the 8th inning to come back and beat the Mets 5-4. With the win, the Phillies now sit at the top of the NL East and will look to widen that gap tonight with Zack Wheeler on the mound for game two.
Season Debut for Zack Wheeler – Wheeler had an abnormal Spring, rehabbing his arm from last season, all while catching the flu a day before his first scheduled start. Wheeler is coming off the best season of his career, finishing 2nd in NL Cy Young voting, posting a 2.78 ERA with 247 strikeouts in 213.1 innings. He’s set to go up against Tylor Megill, who threw 5 innings on Opening Day for New York.
Bet $10, Win $200 if either team hits a HR
The Phillies offense finally woke up in the 8th inning last night, and that momentum is going to carry over to today. Bet $10 on either team’s Moneyline, and win $200 if the Mets or Phillies hit a homer over the next three games.

Tonight’s Phillies Starting Lineup
Here’s how the Phillies will line up for Game 2 against New York. Bryson Stott will get the start at second, giving Jean Segura the night off. Simon Muzziotti will make his first start of his career, playing centerfield, and Johan Camargo will play third.
The Phillies’ offense caught fire in the 8th inning last night, and I don’t see that stopping tonight. Zack Wheeler will most likely be on a pitch count, so the second half of this game could turn into a bullpen game for the Phils.
