The Phillies look to get things going in a good direction at Citi Field against the Mets on Monday.

This would be a nice time to get things on the right track.

The Philadelphia Phillies travel to New York on Monday to take on the Mets in a four game series at Citi Field.

New York is playing very well, winners of its final three affairs against the San Diego Padres and for the first time this year, six games over .500.

Philadelphia is unfortunately at a different place in its season. The Phillies got beaten on last night against the defending world champion St. Louis Cardinals. To make things even bleaker, Roy Halladay left the game after just two innings due to shoulder soreness and needs to be evaluated.

The sunny side of things for the Phillies is Cole Hamels gets the nod Monday afternoon. Hamels has been phenomenal this year, posting a 7-1 record with a 2.17 ERA. It's easy to make a case Hamels is the frontrunner for the Cy Young Award at this point in the campaign.

The Mets will send Jon Niese to the mound. Niese has been very erratic from start-to-start, looking great and then being hammered as he was in Toronto less than two weeks ago. In his last outing, Niese was terrific against Pittsburgh, throwing 7 2/3 innings and only giving up one run in a win.

TV: CSN

Time: 1:10 p.m. ET
