Game 2 tonight promises more fireworks

The Phillies and the Mets are suddenly rekindling their rivalry in a big way, and last night was an indicator of just that. The Phils were kind of mad at home plate umpire, Mark Carlson, and Jake Arrieta took the loss dropping him to 3-2 on the year.

Phillies relievers didn't fair too well last night either, plunking two Mets players in the process with the 5-1 loss at Citi Field. The Phillies have lost 4 of their last 5 games, and the trouble is that losing becomes something you start getting use to. That's not good, so we'll see if the team can bounce back tonight with a much needed win.

Both the Phillies and the Mets are knotted up for first place. Both teams have had some injury news to report lately. The Mets with Jacob DeGrom being one of the top players that are out for the NY Mets. The Phillies have lost a couple players as well, Odubel, and Segura, among the top two.

We'll see if these two teams start tangling from the start of this game tonight, or will things settle down? The run line on the betting services is 8.5 so that should be interesting if these two teams can get some more runs on the board tonight.
