The first place Phillies will look to Zach Eflin in game two of this three game series against the second place New York Mets. Eflin has been superb in his last two starts, giving up only one run in 12 innings pitched. Quite the bounce back after getting shelled three starts ago. Eflin has a 2-2 record with a 3.68 ERA and 20 strikeouts this year.
With such a narrow lead in the division, Philadelphia needs to forget about their past road woes and get the victory here in game two. On the year the Phillies are averaging 5.52 runs per game while they are giving up an average of 4.95 runs per game. The Phillies scored 23 runs over their three game series with the Mets last week, so they have shown that they can put up some numbers against this team.
New York Mets
New York will send Zack Wheeler to the mound in game two as he will try to avenge his loss to the Phillies last time out. He gave up 3 runs on 5 hits last Wednesday, so maybe a start on his own mound will be all the difference needed. On the year Wheeler is 1-2 with a 6.35 ERA and 22 strikeouts.
As stated above, the Mets struggled on the road against these Phillies last week. They only scored 12 runs in that three game series, and are averaging 5.42 runs per game, but are giving up 6.33 runs per game. With the state of Wheeler’s ERA, this game looks to be yet another high scoring affair between these two sides.

Free Philadelphia Phillies vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
This is a hard one to call. You have a Phillies team that demolished the Mets just last week at home, but as you can see by the trends listed above, are a horrible team on the road. Despite those numbers, I still think they have the upper hand in this one, and Zach Eflin has looked untouchable in his last two starts, while Zack Wheeler looks like he is struggling.
