Phillies vs. Mets Lineups: Cliff Lee Looks To Gain Ground In NL Wild Card Race

The Philadelphia Phillies have put themselves in contention for the National League's second wild card spot, although they have some work to do as they sit four games back. The club will turn to Cliff Lee on Monday night as they begin a three-game series with the Mets, who have been out of the playoff chase for months. Despite their shortcomings this season, R.A. Dickey is arguably the Cy Young favorite and could give Philadelphia problems this evening.

The lineups for both clubs have been released.

Phillies:

Jimmy Rollins - SS
John Mayberry - CF
Chase Utley - 2B
Ryan Howard - 1B
Carlos Ruiz - C
Nate Schierholtz - RF
Domonic Brown - LF
Kevin Frandsen - 3B
Cliff Lee - P

Mets:

Ruben Tejada - SS
Daniel Murphy - 2B
David Wright - 3B
Scott Hairston - RF
Lucas Duda - 1B
Jason Bay - LF
Andres Torres - CF
Mike Nickeas - C
R.A. Dickey - P

First pitch from Citi Field is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. ET.
