Mets Vs. Phillies Preview: Game Time, TV Schedule, Probable Pitchers

The New York Mets aim to take the second leg of their series against the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday afternoon with Jonathon Niese on the hill.

Niese was stellar in his first start of the season, taking a no-hitter into the seventh inning against the Atlanta Braves before allowing four runs on two hits in that frame. Even with the poor seventh inning, Niese earned the win.

But he hasn't been good against the Phillies. The lefty is 0-3 with a 7.17 ERA during his last four starts against Philadelphia.

Vance Worley will start for the Phillies. The righty earned a no-decision in his first start after allowing just one run through six innings and leaving with a three-run cushion.
