National League Preview from The Sports Network



Saturday, September 21st (All times Eastern)

New York Mets (69-84) at Philadelphia Phillies (71-82), 7:05 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: New York - Dillon Gee (11-10, 3.47) Philadelphia - Tyler Cloyd (2-5, 5.06)

(Sports Network) - Dillon Gee aims to win his fourth straight road start when the New York Mets resume a weekend set in Philadelphia.

Gee has posted road wins in Atlanta, Washington and Minnesota. Add in a no- decision at Dodger Stadium, and the right-hander hasn't lost on the road since July 27 at Washington.

In nine career appearances (eight starts) against the Phillies, Gee is 2-3 with a 7.66 ERA.

Tyler Cloyd counters for the Phillies. The righty has also struggled of late and is 0-3 over his last five appearances. In his last two outings, Cloyd has given up 19 hits and 12 runs in just eight total innings. He's 1-1 in two career starts against the Mets.

David Wright made his return to lineup a successful one, smacking a two-run homer among his two hits to help the Mets to a 6-4 victory Friday night.

Wright's strained hamstring finally healed after it sidelined the All-Star for nearly seven weeks. He homered in his first at-bat and helped push New York to a lead that it never relinquished.

New York's top three hitters combined for seven hits, with Daniel Murphy going 3-for-5 and finishing with three runs scored and an RBI. Eric Young also had a pair of hits and drove in a run in the victory.

Daisuke Matsuzaka (2-3) had a stellar outing besides a rough fourth inning. He struck out six over six frames, allowing four hits, three walks and four runs. LaTroy Hawkins notched his 11th save with a 1-2-3 ninth.

Darin Ruf knocked in three of the Phillies' runs and scored the fourth. Cole Hamels (8-14) took a beating early and was charged with six runs on 10 hits over seven innings of work.

Philadelphia has taken nine of the 17 meetings with New York this season, but the Mets have won five of the past seven contests between the NL East foes.
