Roy Halladay and the Phillies look to get back in business against the surprising New York Mets on Monday night at Citizens Bank Park.

Roy Halladay needs to get something going. Tonight wouldn't be a bad time to find his groove.

The Philadelphia Phillies will welcome in the New York Mets for a three game series starting on Monday night.

Halladay hasn't been bad this season, but he just hasn't been his dominant self. The hurler has a 3.40 ERA, but was touched up in his last outing, giving up eight runs in five and a third to the Atlanta Braves.

Seeing the Mets is always a welcome site however for Halladay. He's never lost to them since becoming a member of the Phillies, compiling a 7-0 record with an ERA south of two.

New York will have Jonathon Niese on the mound. Niese has been shaky all year but does possess quality stuff. He has already beaten Philly this year back on April 14th, when he pitched six and two thirds without allowing a run.

The Mets are coming off of a series win against Arizona, in which they won the last two games. The Phillies on the other hand lost two of three to Washington, although did avoid being swept with a 9-3 win Sunday.

This is a huge series early in the year for the Phillies and Halladay, who need to get on the right track sooner rather than later.

TV: ESPN

Time: 7:00 p.m. ET
