Phillies-Mets: How to Watch, Stream & Bet Apple TV's 'Friday Night Baseball'


Aug 11, 2022

Two NL East foes, the Philadelphia Phillies and New York Mets, will collide on Friday night to play an important game on Apple TV.

Even with a great start to the second half of the MLB season, the Phillies still aren’t in the race in the NL East but have solidified their playoff standing in the wild card picture. 

The opening pitching matchup should be a good one, with Ranger Suarez of the Phillies taking on Max Scherzer of the Mets. 

Suarez owns an 8-5 record with a 3.68 ERA and 85 strikeouts, while Scherzer is 8-2 with a 1.98 ERA and 120 strikeouts.

Will the Phillies Cut Into New York’s Divisional Lead?

It’s hard to say the Philadelphia Phillies aren’t one of the hottest teams in baseball right now, winners of seven straight games before dropping the series finale to Miami on Thursday. They’ll face the biggest test they’ve had during that stretch on Friday night when they take on Mad Max and the New York Mets.

Will the Mets Stay Hot Against NL East?

The New York Mets got out of the gate as one of the hottest teams in baseball, but they’ve brought consistency to the table for the entirety of the year up to this point. Max Scherzer and the Mets are also playing great baseball right now, winning six straight games with an 8-2 record over their past ten. In addition, the Mets still sit comfortably atop the division with a seven-game lead over the Atlanta Braves. 

Mets Projected Lineup:
