The Philadelphia Phillies will be trying to avoid being swept by the New York Mets on Wednesday.
Philly blew a 4-1 lead on Tuesday night by allowing six unanswered runs. Charlie Manuel's bunch also had a good opportunity to win the first game before Jordany Valdespin hit a three-run blast in the ninth inning off Jonathan Papelbon.
The Phillies will hope that Cliff Lee can break the losing streak. Lee has been terrific this season posting a 1.96 ERA. Incredibly his record is 0-1 with his last start being a 10-inning masterpiece where he didn't allow a run. He didn't get a decision.
The Mets will counter with Dillon Gee on the bump. Gee has been average with a 2-2 record and a 4.50 ERA. He's coming off of a nice outing where he gave up just two runs over six innings to Arizona.
Even though it's only May and the Phillies have well over 100 games to play, this is a big game. Being swept at home, especially by a rival, can be devastating.
