New York Mets
The New York Mets, currently sporting a disappointing 35-41 record, has struggled immensely on the road, sitting eight games below .500. However, they found a glimmer of hope on Saturday as they secured a 4-2 victory against the Philadelphia Phillies, led by the impressive performance of outfielder Starling Marte, who not only homered but also scored twice.
In the upcoming matchup, the Mets will rely on their 36-year-old right-handed pitcher, Carlos Carrasco, who has endured a challenging season thus far. Carrasco holds a lacklustre 2-3 record with a subpar 6.34 ERA in 44 innings pitched. The veteran hurler’s recent outings have been especially rough, as he has surrendered 12 runs (11 earned) over his last 12-plus innings. Despite his struggles, Carrasco did manage to limit the Phillies to just one run in six innings during their previous encounter. Throughout his career, he has maintained a respectable 3.32 ERA with a 3-1 record in 21.2 innings against Philadelphia.
Mets continue to struggle.
Unfortunately for the Mets, their disappointing season continues, and they find themselves desperate. Despite having a talented roster on paper, they have been unable to reach the coveted .500 mark. Their recent performance reflects their struggles, as they have failed to win a series all month and currently stand at a discouraging 3-7 record in their last ten games. As a result, they sit eight games out of a Wildcard spot. Concluding a challenging six-game road trip, the Mets face an uphill battle.

Despite a three-hit performance by outfielder Nick Castellanos, the Phillies fell to a 39-37 record for the year.

With a solid 3.48 ERA, a 1.11 WHIP, and a 6-4 record in 88 innings pitched this season; Wheeler has showcased his prowess on the mound. Notably, he has not faced the Mets yet this season but boasts impressive career numbers against them, including a 3.29 ERA and a 4-4 record in 76.2 innings.
Catcher JT Realmuto has been a standout performer for the Phillies, maintaining a remarkable .933 OPS in June.
