Series Preview: Mets @ Phillies

New York Mets (2-1) @ Philadelphia Phillies (3-0)
The Mets won a road series versus the Marlins, while the Phillies were in the comforts of Citizens Bank Park, and looked like the Phillies of old on opening day when they got 6 straight base hits to come from behind and win it in the 9th inning versus B Lyon and the Astros. The next two days went as expected, as the Phillies beat up on a bad Astros team, winning 9-4, and 7-3.

The pitching match-ups for this series
Chris Young RHP vs Cole Hamels LHP 7:05
Mike Pelfrey RHP vs Joe Blanton RHP 7:05
Jon Niese vs Roy Halladay (0-0, 1.50 ERA, 0.84 WHIP) RHP 3:05

The Mets need to avoid getting swept, and more realistically win 1 of the 3 games; the Mets would drop to .500, and the Phillies would improve to 5-1. I think most fans would take a .500 start to the season after 6 games based on last year's road woes.
