Rubber Match: Phillies, Zack Wheeler square off against Chris Bassitt in a crucial series finale against the Mets
The Phillies take the field today at 1:40 EST, looking to secure a massive series win against the NL East-leading New York Mets.
Zack Wheeler (11-5, 2.63 ERA) gets the ball for the Phils, squaring off against Chris Bassitt (9-7, 3.39 ERA).
Saturday night’s pitcher’s duel was one for the ages, as Aaron Nola and Jacob deGrom battled, totaling 14 IP with just one earned run allowed and 18 Ks. The only run scored was in the first inning, as Pete Alonso would bloop an RBI single to right field.
The Phils moved to 63-50 on the year after last night’s loss but still hold a half-game lead on the Padres after they fell to the poverty Nationals 4-3.
