As of Friday, the New York Mets were leading the race in the National League for the top Wild Card spot. New York will look took hold on to the spot throughout the last weekend of the regular season in a three game series with the Philadelphia Phillies.
The Mets will send Bartolo Colon to the mound for Saturday’s game number two while the Phillies will put Phil Klein on the hill.
The Phillies have known for sometime now that their year would be over at the end of the regular season, but it still would have been nice to end 2016 on a positive note.
Philadelphia has only won three of their previous ten games and as of Friday, they have lost four in a row. The losing streak says more about the Phillies pitching staff than anything else.
As a team, they have been giving up a crippling 9.71 runs per game.
Phil Klein will be on the mound for the Phillies this Saturday, dragging a heavy 8.22 ERA with him. He only has three starts in his career with a record of 0-1.
The Phillies haven’t been doing anything with the wood to take some of the pressure off of their pitchers. They are only averaging 3.78 runs per game with a batting average of .240.
They have room to improve in several areas after the season ends if they look to have a more impressive year next season.
New York Mets
The Mets have yet to clinch a spot in the postseason, but with a record of 22-8 through their last 30 games, they should be in good shape after the series in Philadelphia.
The only real question right now is exactly how far into the playoffs New York can expect to go.
The offense has been good enough to carry the team as of late with all the injuries to the pitching staff, but will they be able to carry the load deep into October?
Bartolo Colon will take the hill on Saturday with his 14-8 record and 3.42 ERA.
Throughout his last 3 starts he has a 1-1 record and an ERA of 5.06. New York is ranked 26th in the Majors with an average of 4.14 runs per game and a team batting average of .245.
One statistic they can be proud of from the plate is the 216 times they have smacked the ball out of the park, coming in 5th in the big leagues with home runs.

The Mets have been relying on their bats to carry them and it should be no problem for the New York offense in Philadelphia this Saturday.
