KEY GAME INFORMATION
NY METS: NEW YORK (AP) - Five straight losing seasons. That's what the New York Mets have produced since moving into Citi Field.
David Wright, for one, is tired of it.
''We need to start going out there showing results,'' the star third baseman said. ''The last couple years we've kind of been hampered by some contracts and payroll issues. It seems like that's behind us. At the same time, we've got those prospects knocking at the door. I think we're in a better place now than we have been the past few years and quite frankly, I think we have a better team.''
Translation: No more waiting for next year. No more selling the future. No more excuses.
It's time to take a step forward - and that means winning.
General manager Sandy Alderson seems to think so, too. After he signed free agents Curtis Granderson, Bartolo Colon and Chris Young this offseason, a report emerged that Alderson told staffers he thinks the Mets can win 90 games (with a payroll under $90 million).
Even hard-core fans found that overly optimistic, especially with ace Matt Harvey expected to miss the entire season following Tommy John surgery. New York posted its second consecutive 74-88 record last year - and that was with Harvey on the mound most of the way.
But there is reason for hope, particularly in Triple-A. Touted young pitchers Noah Syndergaard and Rafael Montero could soon join a promising rotation that includes Colon, Zack Wheeler, Dillon Gee and Jonathon Niese.
''He's got all the traits of the good ones,'' manager Terry Collins said about Syndergaard. ''He's on track to be special.''
The offense could be better with the addition of Granderson, who got a $60 million, four-year deal after an injury-plagued season for the Yankees across town. His left-handed power bat should provide some much-needed protection for Wright.
The multitalented Young, on a one-year contract following a down season in Oakland, appears highly motivated to regain his All-Star form.
''It's been interesting to watch the whole team,'' Granderson said early in spring training. ''There's power here. Chris Young has been amazing.''
The lineup remains flawed and prone to strikeouts, though the roster has improved. Perhaps not enough to push Washington and Atlanta in the NL East just yet, but the Mets expect to take significant strides this season as they anticipate Harvey's return in 2015.
''When I re-signed here, I knew it wasn't an overnight fix. I think I like that part of the challenge of it,'' Wright said. ''I want to be part of the reason why we get this thing turned around and headed in the right direction and ultimately start winning again. I think we have that ability.''
PHILADELPHIA: PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Ryan Howard and his teammates have heard critics say the window has closed for the Philadelphia Phillies.
They just don't believe it.
After a dominant run that included five straight NL East titles, two pennants and the 2008 World Series championship, the Phillies have missed the postseason two consecutive years. They have an aging core of players who've been declining.
Howard, Chase Utley, Jimmy Rollins and Carlos Ruiz are the remaining regulars from the group that led Philadelphia to its best era of baseball from 2007-11 under former manager Charlie Manuel.
They're determined to make another run.
''We've had a bad couple years and had injuries and all that stuff, but I don't think it's over,'' Howard said. ''People are entitled to their opinions and that's fine, but it's up to us to go out there and show them otherwise and go out and play our game and do what we do.''
General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. refused to start the rebuilding process after the Phillies' first losing season since 2002. Instead, he re-signed Utley and Ruiz and added veteran outfielder Marlon Byrd and right-hander A.J. Burnett in free agency.
If the older players live up to their hefty contracts and younger guys like 2013 All-Star Domonic Brown, Cody Asche and Ben Revere continue to develop, the Phillies should be in contention.
''I think we're positive. We're expecting to win and plan on doing everything we can to ensure that,'' ace lefty Cliff Lee said.

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

By NICOLINO DIBENEDETTO STATS Writer

New York (55-61) at Philadelphia (52-64), 1:35 p.m. EDT

Zack Wheeler's recent dominance is showing few signs of stopping, and another meeting with the Philadelphia Phillies may just keep him rolling.

Wheeler looks to continue the best stretch of his young career Sunday, when he goes for a third straight win over the Phillies.

Wheeler (7-8, 3.48 ERA) is 4-0 with a 1.59 ERA over his last seven starts, reaching the seventh in six of them. The 24-year-old, second-year right-hander is also 2-0 with a 1.04 ERA in his past five road games after going 2-4 with a 4.66 ERA over his first nine.

He battled through his latest outing Tuesday, but still yielded only one run despite allowing seven hits and four walks before being pulled with two outs in the seventh of a 6-1 win at Washington.

"That's what we talk about when we bring up the fact that he's maturing, that he's really starting to figure out what it takes here," manager Terry Collins told MLB's official website. "His command wasn't there at the beginning of the game, but he just continued to battle and stayed with it. He tried to make some big pitches and did. This kid has really, really gotten better. As he continues to improve, the sky's the limit."

Wheeler has given the Phillies a first-hand look at his capabilities, going 2-1 with a 2.59 ERA in four starts. He allowed two runs in 6 2-3 innings of an 11-2 win July 30, and was dominant in his only appearance at Citizens Bank Park on May 29. He fanned nine in 6 2-3 innings, yielding only a seventh-inning homer to Marlon Byrd and three other hits in 6 2-3 innings of a 4-1 victory.

The Mets (56-61) have won five straight and 11 of 12 games in Philadelphia (52-65) after Lucas Duda's RBI single provided the difference in Saturday's 2-1, 11-inning win.

"That was a good grind-out win for us," Collins said after New York improved to 6-1 in one-run games in that span at its division rival.

Juan Lagares is batting .380 in 27 career meetings with the Phillies. The center fielder has gone 11 for 25 (.440) over the past six after doubling on two of his three hits in this series.

Daniel Murphy, meanwhile, is trying to bounce back from his 0-for-5 effort after hitting .455 with 11 RBIs over the previous 13 games.

Philadelphia is batting .206 while averaging 2.8 runs in its 1-11 stretch at home versus New York, and it'll likely need to do better than that behind Kyle Kendrick (5-11, 4.74).

He's 0-2 with a 5.01 ERA over his last four starts against the Mets, and the right-hander took the loss opposite Wheeler on July 30, when he was victimized by a four-run fifth inning before leaving after the sixth.

Kendrick was much better six days later, allowing one run in seven innings of a 2-1 win in 15 against Houston.

Building on that performance may require showing improvement against Lagares, who is 6 for 8 against him. However, he's mostly dominated Duda, holding him to 4 for 23 with three doubles and a homer.

Murphy, though, is 4 for 9 with a homer off Kendrick this year.
