5/3/2013 @ ATLANTA  
PHILADELPHIA: HITTING: This Phillies lineup had another subpar season, finishing 18th in the majors in homers (153) and 13th in runs (4.4 per game). The team re-signed free-agent SS JIMMY ROLLINS, especially because light-hitting WILSON VALDEZ is his backup. Raul Ibanez has left town, which allows OF JOHN MAYBERRY JR. to display his power on a daily basis. He had 15 HR in 267 at-bats last year. 1B RYAN HOWARD will not be ready for Opening Day after Achilles surgery in October, and will be replaced by a platoon of newcomers, JIM THOME and TY WIGGINTON. 2B CHASE UTLEY continues to be bothered by tendinitis in his knee, which has caused his numbers to drop significantly in the past two years. He will not be ready for Opening Day and no timetable has been set for his return. Veterans OF SHANE VICTORINO and C CARLOS RUIZ are both coming off typical productive seasons. OF HUNTER PENCE batted .324 with 11 HR after his trade from Houston and is poised for a huge 2012 campaign at age 28. 3B PLACIDO POLANCO is coming off his third Gold Glove season at the hot corner, but his .277 BA in 2011 was his lowest mark since 1999. Stud prospect OF DOMONIC BROWN is expected to begin the season in Triple-A.
STARTING PITCHING: ROY HALLADAY won the Cy Young Award in 2010 in his first year in Philadelphia, but he was even better in 2011, posting a career-best 2.35 ERA and also reaching a personal best with 220 strikeouts. CLIFF LEE was also outstanding in his first full season in a Phillies uniform, tallying six shutouts, which included a stretch of three straight blankings midway through the year. He wasn't afraid to pitch in Citizens Bank Park, going 11-3 with a 1.94 ERA at his new home. Like Halladay and Lee, COLE HAMELS also notched a career-best ERA (2.79) and held batters to a .214 average. Although he has the stigma of being oft-injured, Hamels was able to start 30+ games for the fourth straight season. VANCE WORLEY was impressive once he was inserted into the rotation, going 11-3 with a 3.02 ERA as a starter and fanning 73 over 74.2 innings of his final dozen starts. JOE BLANTON rounds out the rotation, but he could be limited a bit after an elbow injury cost him much of the 2011 season.
RELIEF PITCHING: Not willing to shell out the big money for inconsistent and oft-injured closer Brad Lidge, the Phillies decided to spend their dough on JONATHAN PAPELBON instead. The former Red Sox closer was 31-of-34 in save chances last year with a career-high 87 strikeouts and just 10 walks. With the departure of free agent Ryan Madson, ANTONIO BASTARDO assumes eighth-inning duties. The southpaw allowed a microscopic .144 opponents' BA, won six games and saved eight others last season. JOSE CONTERAS (age 40) returns for his seventh-inning duty and appears healthy enough to pitch following last year's season-ending elbow surgery. He is 9-of-10 in save chances since 2010.
NY METS: HITTING: The Mets will be moving in the fences at Citi Field by as much as 12 feet and reducing the height to eight feet, making the park more homer-friendly. The loss of Jose Reyes and his NL-leading average at the top of the order weakens an already subpar lineup. 3B DAVID WRIGHT is coming off his worst season (.254 BA, 14 HR, 61 RBI) and could be traded at the July 31 deadline. New OF ANDRES TORRES provides very little at the plate (.221 BA, .312 OBP), but the future is bright for youngsters OF LUCAS DUDA (.852 OPS) and 1B IKE DAVIS (.926 OPS), who missed most of 2011 with an ankle injury. OF JASON BAY (.245 BA) continues to be a colossal bust. SS RUBEN TEJADA will be tasked with trying to replace Reyes. The 22-year-old made great strides last year, batting .319 after August 1. DANIEL MURPHY hit .320 last year, and will start at second, possibly losing AB in a platoon with JUSTIN TURNER. C JOSH THOLE hits well enough to be an above-average starting catcher.
STARTING PITCHING: With the fences moving forward at Citi Field, the entire Mets pitching staff takes a hit. JOHAN SANTANA will be ready for Opening Day, but it's hard to have much faith that he'll remain healthy for an entire season. His velocity on his fastball is not what it used to be, topping out in the high-80's. MIKE PELFREY benefitted most from the pitcher-friendly ballpark with serviceable home numbers (3.94 ERA, 1.38 WHIP) and atrocious road statistics (5.49 ERA, 1.56 WHIP). JONATHON NIESE was also much better at Citi Field (3.54 ERA) than he was on the road (5.33 ERA), but he posted 14 games of 6+ strikeouts for the second straight season. DILLON GEE began the season 7-0 with a 2.86 ERA and 1.08 WHIP, but closed the 2011 campaign with a 5.51 ERA and 1.59 WHIP in his final 17 starts. Knuckle-balling R.A. DICKEY posted a second straight solid season with New York, notching a 3.28 ERA and a solid 1.23 WHIP. At age 37, he hopes to keep his pitches dancing in the smaller home ballpark.
RELIEF PITCHING: Two former Blue Jays late-innings relievers, FRANK FRANCISCO and JON RAUCH, were signed from Toronto to pitch at the back of the bullpen. Francisco will likely get first crack at the ninth-inning role, saving 17 games last year and keeping his strikeout rate above one per inning for the fourth straight year. Rauch is an imposing figure at 6-foot-11, but he posted a 1.35 WHIP and paltry 6.2 strikeout rate last year. But 52 saves since 2008 makes him a worthy candidate for ninth-inning duty. RAMON RAMIREZ was part of the Andres Torres/Angel Pagan trade and he should be a valuable set-up man. He had a strong two-year stint with San Francisco, posting a 2.07 ERA and 1.09 WHIP.

*Phillies-Mets Preview* =======================


Philadelphia (9-13) at New York (10-9), 7:10 p.m. EDT

With Kyle Kendrick pitching well, the Philadelphia Phillies hope to start turning things around by continuing their recent success against an NL East rival.

Then again, the starting staff hasn't been Philadelphia's problem lately.

The Phillies try to avoid their second four-game losing streak in two weeks and claim their seventh win in eight games against the New York Mets on Friday night at Citi Field.

Philadelphia has lost eight of 11 and dropped the final three of a four-game set against Pittsburgh this week, falling 6-4 on Thursday after blowing a late two-run lead.

The Phillies (9-14), who lost four straight April 15-18, dropped a series at home to the Pirates for the first time since 2003.

"We're just not playing good baseball right now," manager Charlie Manuel said. "We're in a bad term, or whatever you want to call it. We're trying and we have a lot of life, but we're not getting it done."

Manuel's starting pitchers have mostly performed well, giving up no more than two runs in 11 of the past 15 games. This past turn the rotation saw Philadelphia's starters post a 2.78 ERA, including six runs in 21 innings over the past three games.

Those losses saw the bullpen allow seven runs, 10 hits and four walks in six innings. The Phillies offense also continues to provide limited help, producing 2.7 runs per game over the last 13.

Philadelphia has totaled three runs in Kendrick's last two starts, and he didn't receive a decision in either one. Kendrick (1-1, 3.28 ERA) gave up two runs over 13 innings in those games after beating the Mets on April 10 for his lone win, yielding two runs over six innings in a 7-3 victory.

Kendrick is 3-1 with a 2.55 ERA in four starts against them since the start of 2011, and his team also has done quite well against New York lately. The Phillies won the final four meetings last year and took two of three in Philadelphia in the teams' first series this season, posting a 2.57 ERA during that seven-game span.

The Mets (10-10) have alternated wins and losses through six contests of a nine-game homestand and now look to rebound from a 3-2 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Thursday.

While they rank near the top of the majors with 110 runs, the Mets have failed to score more than two in three of the past four and are hitting .207 in their last seven.

The Mets will turn to Dillon Gee (1-3, 5.95) after the right-hander snapped a three-game losing streak Sunday. Gee had been tagged for 12 runs and 17 hits over 7 2-3 innings in his previous two outings, but displayed an effective changeup while allowing three hits in 5 2-3 innings of a 2-0 win over Washington.

"I think he needed it bad. I think it's a great confidence builder for him," manager Terry Collins said.

Gee is 2-2 with a 7.03 ERA in six career starts against the Phillies, and he allowed seven runs and 10 hits over three innings in an 8-3 loss at Philadelphia on April 9.

Ryan Howard, Michael Young and John Mayberry homered off Gee in that victory. Howard, 9 for 23 in his last six games, has three hits - all homers - in nine career at-bats against him. Young (4 for 5) and Jimmy Rollins (7 for 11) also have had success against Gee.

David Wright has dominated Kendrick over the past four-plus seasons, going 9 for 18 with two homers and two doubles.
