The New York Mets haven’t been getting the job done against divisional opponents, but a Sunday matchup with the lowly Philadelphia Phillies could be exactly what the doctor ordered to get them back on the winning track.
- The Mets are 1-5 in their last 6 road games.
- The UNDER is 4-1 in the Phillies’ last 5 starts.
- The Mets are 1-4 in deGroms last 5 road starts.

Eflin (2-2, 4.08) has recorded back-to-back victories after beginning his career with an 0-2 record.
