MLB Game Day Preview: Mets @ Phillies

Philadelphia (81-44) comes into this contest on a very strange and uncharacteristic roll. Last Tuesday the Phillies, who were 66-1 when leading after eight innings, lost to the Diamondbacks when Roy Halladay blew the first ninth-inning lead of his storied career.

On Sunday, for the first time in over a year, Philadelphia blew not one but two save opportunities in a 5-4 ten inning loss to the Washington Nationals.

Another season to forget continues for the New York Mets (60-66) as they sit 21.5 games back of the Phillies in the National League East Division.

Compounding their problems, the Mets will be without star shortstop Jose Reyes who is still nursing a hamstring injury. New York is 4-10 since Reyes was forced to the sidelines back on August 7, 2011.
