The Philadelphia Phillies (74-72) and the New York Mets (72-75) will meet in the opener of the NL East three-game weekend competition at Citi Field in Flushing Queens on Friday, September 17, 2021, at 7:10 PM ET. Philadelphia concluded a three-game series versus the Chicago Cubs with a 17-8 triumph and won the series by 2-1. The Phillies kneeled to the Cubs in the opener at 3-6 on Tuesday but Philadelphia managed to bounce back and won the last two installments. The Phillies scored a total of 23 runs while giving away 13 in winning the last two contests at 6-5 on Wednesday with a 17-8 blowout victory over Chicago on Thursday. The Philadelphia bullpen contributed a combined eight runs on ten hits with six walks granted and struck out seven hitters of the Cubs in picking up the triumph. Right Fielder Bryce Harper led the charge with three runs scored on a triple while driving four RBIs in the winning effort.

 

Philadelphia will give a nod to right-hander Zack Wheeler to take his post on the pitcher’s rubber to start against the Mets in the first installment of a three-game set on Friday. The righty thrower is not yet an ace pitcher but he managed to record an impressive 13-9 mark with a 2.86 ERA and 1.02 WHIP while striking out a huge 225 batters in his 195.1 innings of work this year. Wheeler also gave up 157 hits, 68 runs (62 earned), and 16 HRs while granting 42 walks.
