This might be the strangest Mets-Phillies series in the history of the rivalry: As we write this, the Mets are, improbably, ahead of the defending NL East champion Phillies in the standings, and both are chasing the Washington Nationals. That’s just one reason we love baseball! Another eye-popping Mets-Phillies fun fact: Although the Phillies lead the series 459 to 402 (with one tie), the Mets shocked the baseball world with a sweep in their last meeting just three weeks ago—the first time New York has swept a series in Philadelphia in six years. Injuries have ravaged both teams, but David Wright has been above .400 all year, and you’ll probably get to see a couple of the Phillies Fabulous Three starters—Ray Halladay, Cliff Lee, and Cole Hamels. Let’s go, Mets!
