Game Thread 9/4: Phillies at Mets

The Phillies’ two weeks in the NL East is reaching its middle.

The Phillies are 4-9 against the Mets! The Phillies are 3-3 at Citi Field! The Phillies are 2-1 in the month of September! The numbers are all over the place on this one, gang. Will the limited returns of Odubel Herrera and Aaron Altherr be enough to shut up the Mets fans in the garbage hole in which they live? Or will the Phillies labor through yet another horrific Monday loss (It’s Labor Day, you see) (Also, the Phillies are actually 6-7 on Mondays this season)?

Mark Leiter and his 3.41 ERA over his last six starts (???) gets the ball for the Phillies while strike zone-murdering Rafael Montero will slither out there for the Mets.

Tune in and find out what happens! Or, just keep your focus on your grill. It’s a holiday.
