On Sunday, the workload will be on starters Jonathon Niese and Cole Hamels to work deep into this fourth game of a five-game wraparound series.

The teams have split back-to-back 14-inning contests, with the Mets avenging Friday night's 6-5 defeat by outlasting the Phillies 5-4 on Saturday thanks to David Wright's two-out go-ahead single.

The marathons have lasted a combined 10 hours and 55 minutes with 934 pitches thrown, leaving both bullpens taxed to a near-breaking point. Sixteen relievers -- eight of them appearing in both games -- have combined to throw 534 pitches in 32 innings.

Saturday's loser Antonio Bastardo has allowed the lone run by Phillies relievers in 15 innings over the two contests, but the Mets (26-29) have conceded only three in 17 -- and the 285 pitches logged by their bullpen are their most in consecutive games dating to at least 1988.

Buddy Carlyle, called up from Triple-A after Friday's loss, got his first win since 2008 with three scoreless innings.

The Mets likely won't be able to call on Daisuke Matsuzaka and Jeurys Familia, and Josh Edgin and Scott Rice might be restricted to situational help. Left-hander Dana Eveland will be added to the roster before the game according to MLB.com.

For Philadelphia (24-29), Bastardo, Mike Adams, Jonathan Papelbon and Mario Hollands all have thrown at least one inning in both contests, and Jeff Manship -- who strained his right quadriceps trying to beat out a chopper in the bottom of the 13th -- is unavailable after striking out six in four hitless innings.

Bastardo has pitched four consecutive days, walking seven in three innings over that span, and likely would be only used as a last resort.

Niese (3-3, 2.74 ERA) has pitched at least six innings in seven of his 10 starts, but he has failed to do that in two of his last three.

The left-hander struggled with his command Tuesday against Pittsburgh, walking four in 5 2/3 innings before New York pulled out a 4-2 win.

Niese did beat Hamels (1-3, 4.43) in a 6-1 victory April 29, holding the Phillies to one run in seven innings while Hamels was tagged for six in 4 2-3. On May 11, Hamels fanned 10 and allowed one run in seven innings and Niese yielded three in six of New York's 5-4, 11-inning victory.

Hamels lost to Colorado on Tuesday after giving up a tiebreaking homer in the seventh inning of a 6-2 defeat, and his 14 losses to the Mets are his most against any team. Wright is hitting .329 (23 for 70) with five homers and three doubles against the lefty, while David Murphy is 17 for 40 with a homer and four doubles.

This is the second straight year Philadelphia will deal with an overworked bullpen in a series -- its relievers tossed 407 pitches Aug. 24 and 25 against Arizona, with 351 of them coming in a 12-7, 18-inning defeat. The Phillies won the following game 9-5.

The New York Mets look to avoid another sweep, this one in the hands of the Phillies who have bailed themselves out of last place (17-18) and have left the Mets (16-19) there sitting at the bottom.

The Mets would love another dominant outing from Niese as they try to snap a season-high five-game slide against Hamels and the Phillies in Sunday's finale of this three-game set at Citi Field.

Niese (2-2, 1.82 ERA) has been troubled by injuries throughout his career, and started this season on the disabled list with elbow inflammation. The left-hander has returned to compile the Mets' lowest ERA and WHIP (1.01) through his first six starts.

He's been even better over his last four outings, putting together a 1.01 ERA and 0.97 WHIP while holding opponents to a .194 average.

The bullpen let Niese down Monday, when he tossed seven scoreless innings before Daisuke Matsuzaka gave up three in the eighth of a 4-3 defeat at Miami.

Niese's recent dominance includes a 6-1 win at Philadelphia on April 29, when the only run he allowed in seven innings came on a solo homer by former Met Marlon Byrd.

He was even better against the Phillies at home Aug. 27, tossing a three-hitter in a 5-0 victory to improve to 4-1 with a 1.50 ERA in six meetings there.

Continuing that success may be vital with the Mets on the verge of six straight defeats for the first time since May 10-15, 2013. They got closer to that mark by falling 5-4 to Philadelphia on Saturday as Ryan Howard delivered the decisive blow with a tiebreaking single in the ninth.

Howard doubled on one of his season high-tying four hits Saturday, and he's batting .432 with five doubles, four homers and 13 RBIs over his last 11 meetings with New York.

Howard, though, is 2 for 18 with nine strikeouts against Niese.

While Niese is emerging as the Mets' top arm, Hamels (0-2, 7.02) is having a tough time finding his first win of the season and the 100th of his career.

One of those attempts came opposite Niese last month, when he surrendered six runs while walking five batters and hitting another in 4 2/3 innings, giving him back-to-back losses and a 9.26 ERA versus New York.

Hamels didn't show much improvement Tuesday, getting hammered for five runs and 10 hits -- two homers -- in six innings of a 6-5 loss in 10 to Toronto.

David Wright is hitting .429 with six doubles and six RBIs in his last eight games. He had a double and a homer among his three hits while adding three RBIs Saturday.

The All-Star third baseman went 0 for 3 versus Hamels on April 29 after going 10 for 24 with three homers over the past two seasons.

David Wright in his career is batting .333 (22 for 66) vs Hamels with 5 Bombs. The Mets players combined are hitting .300 (74 for 243) vs Hamels. Juan Lagares (5 for 13) is hitting .385 vs Hamels. Daniel Murphy is batting .405 (15 for 37) vs the lefty... Ruben Tejada is batting .308 vs Hamels. Chris Young is batting .313 (5 for 16) and Eric Young is batting .375 (9 for 24) vs Hamels.

The Mets have a good chance to squander the last of three in NYC... Happy Mothers Day Everyone!

Lets Go Mets!
