The 3-3 Philadelphia Phillies will begin a series with the 4-2 New York Mets on Friday, as Cliff Lee faces off against RA Dickey.

Cliff Lee will be starting his second game of the season. He went six innings in his first start – a no decision against the Miami Marlins – allowing one run on two hits. He also walked two and struck out four. Dickey similarly pitched six innings in his first start of the season, winning a 4-2 ball game over the Atlanta Braves. He allowed two earned runs, walking four and striking out three.

The Mets and Phillies have only scored 18 runs a piece this season, which is the second lowest in the National League, behind the Pirates' 11.

First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 PM.
