A rubber match in Queens to get the month of May started sounds like fun until you realize who the Phillies are up against. They went .500 for the month of April, which isn’t horrible considering how they hit for most of it, but there could have been so much more. Tonight, though, they need to take this series from the Mets before their last day off in a while.

Here are the lineups. For the Phillies:

Zach Eflin was outstanding his last start out and he’ll look to carry that over into tonight’s game.

For the Mets:

Yup, it’s Max Scherzer time tonight. Great.

Let’s talk about it.
