Game 6: Mets @ Phillies. Game Time 3:05

The Mets try to win their 2nd road series in a row, but this one will be a lot more challenging than facing J Vasquez on Sunday. They have to face a future Hall of Famer at his peak, Roy Halladay,

J Reyes SS
W Harris LF
D Wright 3B
I Davis 1B
A Pagan CF
(I like Pagan so much better in the #2 spot)
L Duda RF
B Emaus 2B
J Thole C
J Niese P

Niese is coming off a very good start in his first outing, where he struggled in the 1st inning, but then threw 6 terrific innings, and left after throwing only 86 pitches, allowing only 2 runs on 4 hits and 1 walk. He didn't get the win, but he did his job. His scouting report is here.

My prediction: Niese is going to throw well and match Halladay through 6 innings, but it's going to be decided by the Mets bullpen, and after throwing 6 innings yesterday, it's going to be tough. Mets lose 3-1, and they come home for the Home Opener tomorrow with a 3-3 record.
