The Mets (40-49, 12.5 GB in NL East, 6.5 GB of second wild card) face the Philadelphia Phillies (46-43, 6.5 GB in NL East, 0.5 GB of second wild card) in the final game before the All-Star break on Sunday at 1:10 p.m. at Citi Field.
Here's what happened on Saturday in case you missed it.
Todd Frazier and Mickey Callaway were ejected in the fifth inning of Saturday's 6-5 win. Frazier was ejected for arguing after he was hit by a Jake Arrieta pitch. After warnings were issued, Arrieta hit Amed Rosario with a pitch, however was not ejected. Callaway argued with the umpires and was ejected. In front of his locker after the game, Arrieta said, "If Frazier's not happy about it, he can come see me. I'll put a dent in his skull."
Mets GM Brodie Van Wagenen reportedly held a heated meeting with Callaway after Friday's 7-2 loss, when the bullpen spoiled Jacob deGrom's strong outing by allowing five runs in the ninth inning.
While Noah Syndergaard labored through five innings, Jeff McNeil had four hits while Tomas Nido drove in three runs as the Mets won the penultimate game of the first half.
Could Steven Matz be the Mets' closer if Callaway makes a change with Edwin Diaz?
Former Met TJ Rivera made his debut with the Long Island Ducks.
