Matz gets the start for the Mets and believe it or not he has been the most consistent starter so for the Mets. He has 3 starts and has a 1.65 ERA. Philly counters with Pivetta. He is coming off of a dreadful outing in which he game up 7 runs and has lost 2 out of 3 starts. I like the little road dog in this one.70%

Love the Mets here. The Mets have also been a solid road team so far this season, winning eight of their last 11 games. There are bound to be struggles from Pivetta on the mound facing an offense with a top-10 batting average (.268) and fourth in on base percentage (.355). In 12.4 innings, Pivetta has already given up three homers, 24 hits and 14 earned runs to opponents. There are warranted pitching concerns on both sides with these two teams. However, in this particular match-up, Matz has a clear and distinct advantage over Pivetta. Matz has a 3.57 ERA in 22.2 innings working against the Phillies in the last three years, while Pivetta is throwing a 6.39 against the Mets in 25.2 innings.50%

Phillies Nation: Middle of the order slumping as Phillies look to bounce back against Mets
It was inevitable that Bryce Harper was going to slump at some point in the 2019 season. And following a white-hot start to his first year with the Phillies in which the new right fielder banged three homers and six extra-base hits over his first seven games, that slump has arrived.
Over the last eight games, Harper is slashing just .156/.289/.281 with one home run, one double, five RBI, and three runs scored. He has also walked just six times after drawing eight free passes over those first seven games.
The 26-year-old superstar is in the first year of a massive 13-year contract signed just over a month ago.
Phillies Nation: Phillies miss multiple opportunities, fall to Mets in extra innings
Final: Mets 7, Phillies 6
If you showed up to Citizens Bank Park Monday night expecting to see a pitcher's duel between Aaron Nola and Noah Syndergaard, you didn't get one.
Both Nola and Syndergaard are one-time National League All-Stars. The start that each has had to their 2019 season suggests they won't be taking part in this year's midsummer classic at Progressive Field in Cleveland.
The New York Mets got three runs off of Nola in the top of the third inning. Two of the three runs came off of the bat of former Phillie Wilson Ramos, who laced a two-out, two-run single into left field:
Ramos would ultimately score the third run of the inning, with a Jeff McNeil single into right field plating him.
The Good Phight: Same Old: Mets 7, Phillies 6
As mentioned in my series preview, the Phillies have spent the past several seasons losing a lot of games to the New York Mets, many of them in extremely aggravating fashion. My hope was that the Phillies of 2019 would put those awful days behind them. But if the first matchup of the year is any indication, the Phillies have yet to cast off their Mets-related demons.
I also suspected that the pitching matchup between Aaron Nola and Noah Syndergaard might not live up to expectations. Sure enough, on a cold night, neither pitcher looked sharp.
