The Phillies had a chance to stick it to the Mets at home this weekend and put them in the rearview mirror in the Wild Card standings. Instead, the Mets have taken the first two games and the NL playoff picture is coming into focus earlier than some expected here in September.
Jason Vargas wriggled out of trouble for a few innings on Saturday but the Mets eventually got to him in the fifth. Bryce Harper hit a fairly meaningless solo home run, as many of his home runs are. The Phillies just don’t have the right mix of players on their roster.
Zach Eflin will try to be the stopper on Sunday and then Drew Smyly takes the ball in this one on Monday. This Philadelphia rotation is just a disaster and somehow I think it only gets worse between now and the end of the season.
The Phils are dead.
The Reds are playing a pair of doubleheader in St. Louis this weekend and the two on Saturday both went to the Birds.
Trevor Bauer could only get through four innings in the first game but Sonny Gray at least pitched into the seventh in the nightcap. Tyler Mahle and Luis Castillo will be in charge of helping Cincinnati bounce back on Sunday.
It’s also important they get through six innings to spare the bullpen with no days off between Sunday’s doubleheader finale and Monday’s opener.
Anthony DeSclafani is looking to finish with an ERA+ in triple-digits for the second time in his career (114 going into this start). He went a season-high seven innings in his last start, allowed two hits, no runs, and struck out eight. That came against the Marlins, though. Lots of guys have outings like that against the Fish.

Backing the Phillies feels almost impossible at this point but the Reds’ pitching is going to be in rough shape after the weekend.
