Preview / Lineup - Game 9 - Mets at Phillies - Metsy's Looking to Sweep

New York Mets (6-2) at Philadelphia Phillies (3-5), 1:35 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: New York - Mike Pelfrey (0-0, 4.76) Philadelphia - Cole Hamels (0-1, 5.06)

The Phillies haven't done much to silence the worries of an offense playing without Ryan Howard and Chase Utley.

After getting shut out for the first time this season on Saturday, Philadelphia tries to avoid a three-game sweep at the hands of the New York Mets this afternoon.

Opening the season without two of their biggest sluggers due to injury, the Phillies have plated just 20 runs this season, ahead of only the Pittsburgh Pirates for the fewest in the majors. They were held to six hits in Saturday's 5-0 loss to the Mets, who got third baseman David Wright back into the lineup.

Wright hadn't played since Monday, when he suffered a fractured pinkie on his right hand, but the former All-Star returned in a big way, homering in his first at-bat and adding two singles while adding a lift to his teammates.

"When a guy like David Wright goes out and plays with a broken finger, and everybody knows he's got it, and plays the way he plays, all of a sudden the other guys don't hurt as bad," said New York manager Terry Collins.

Lucas Duda clubbed a two-run homer for the Mets, who have taken the first two games of this series to improve to 6-2 on the young season.

Jon Niese limited the Phillies to five singles over 6 2/3 innings.

Vance Worley gave up four runs on eight hits and walked four in six frames for Philadelphia, which fell to 3-5.

"You just got to keep working and be confident things will get turned around," said Phillies outfielder John Mayberry Jr.
