Game Thread: Phillies vs Mets 7/15/16

This should be fun.

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports


Phillies (42-48) vs Mets (47-41)

Citizens Bank Park

7:05PM EDT on NBC 10

Jeremy Hellickson (6-6) 3.92 ERA

PHILLIES: Hellickson opens the second half because he is the Phillies’ only veteran in the rotation. He also has pitched well recently, which could increase his stock as the Aug. 1 Trade Deadline approaches. He is available at the right price.

Bartolo Colon (7-4) 3.28 ERA

METS: The 2016 All-Star (lololol) was roughed up by the Nats for 6 runs over 4 2/3 innings in his last start, but otherwise he has been the picture of consistency, pitching at least 6 innings and allowing fewer than 2 earned runs in 4 of his past 5 starts.
