Over on the Mets’ side, they’re coming off a set versus the Nationals. New York fell on Tuesday in a tough one 11-10 but won the other pair of games 7-3 (Monday) and 8-4 (Wednesday) to take the series.

For Friday’s matchup, the Mets will go with Steven Matz in the start. Over his 133.2 innings and 9-8 record this year, Matz has a 4.04 ERA with 128 Ks and 39 BBs.

The Phillies are 5-2 in the last seven in game one of a series and 2-6 in Eflin’s last eight starts. Philly is 1-7 in Eflin’s last eight starts with four days’ rest and 2-6 in his last eight on grass.

Meanwhile, the Mets are 5-2 in their last seven after an off day and 3-7 in their last 10 Friday games. New York is 0-6 in the last six home games and 8-2 in Matz’s last 10 with five days’ rest.

Eflin is sitting on a pair of quality starts, posting a total of three earned in 13.0 innings on nine hits. His most recent outing was a no-decision against the Mets.

As for Matz, he’s got four quality starts in his last five games and hasn’t given up more than two earned in any of those five. I like Matz to keep it going here and help New York get an opener victory.
