Game 55 Open Thread: Mets @ Phillies

Elsa

We're almost done with the Mets, guys.

Loading Scores

I'm going to make this quick. This has been one of the longest and worst-played series in modern baseball history, so let's not dwell on it.

The Mets have taken three of the first four games of this series and now, the Phils will try to avoid losing four out of five and falling three games behind the Mets for 4th place in the NL East.

They will face the rotund ace of the Mets, Bartolo Colon, who has a 4.73 ERA. He'll be opposed by Roberto Hernandez, who has allowed four runs in 12 innings since coming back to the rotation.

Jimmy Rollins gets the night off, Cesar Hernandez takes his place.
