Gamethread 5/1: Mets at Phillies

Game two of the weekend series

MLB: New York Mets at Philadelphia Phillies Kam Nedd-USA TODAY Sports

Coming off Friday night’s emotion-filled Phillies victory, the boys in red pinstripes are back in action against the Mets on Saturday evening.

Didi Gregorius will be back in the lineup for the Phils and hopes to give the depleted offense a boost. Meanwhile, Bryce Harper and J.T. Realmuto are still out with their injuries.

They’ll be facing Mets right hander Taijuan Walker, while Zack Wheeler takes the ball for the Phillies against his former team.

Having pitched two days in a row, it seems unlikely that Jose Alvarado, who sparked Friday night’s confrontations, will appear in the game. We’ll see if his absence helps keeps emotions in check.

Game time is 6:05 and will be televised on NBC Sports+.
