The Phillies haven’t won a series in over a month. In fact, they have lost eight series in that span of time and split just one, a quick two-gamer with Boston.
What’s surprising, given only that information, is that the Phillies are still within striking distance of the Braves, who have played nearly as bad for nearly as long.
Initially, this game was supposed to feature Aaron Nola up against Thor but it will be Zach Eflin instead. That’s probably the difference between Philly being a favorite and not.
Eflin has been good all year, though, it’s just a stretch to think the Phillies can go on the road and beat a starting pitcher like Syndergaard.
New York Mets
Syndergaard is off of his first career complete game in his last start. He was pumping 99 mile per hour heaters in the ninth inning when he was more than 110 pitches into his outing. He finished with 114.
So, like a pitcher who pushes it to finish a no-hitter, Syndergaard should be on the watch list in this game.
He’s had a good season but not a great one. His strikeouts are down and the hits and runs allowed are up. He’s up for another year of arbitration this offseason.

Free Philadelphia Phillies vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction: Eflin.
At first I didn’t think there was any way I would back Philly in this game but I’m skeptical Syndergaard can be as sharp in this start. Plus, he may be a little pricey given what he’s coming off.
