The Mets (86-74) will look to clinch a Wild Card spot outright as they face the Phillies (70-90) in Philadelphia on Saturday, which you can follow online here.
RHP Bartolo Colon (14-8, 3.42 ERA) will get the start for the Mets and will be opposed by RHP Phil Klein (0-1, 8.22 ERA).
Colon looks to rebound after a poor start in Miami where he allowed seven runs in 2.1 innings. Last beat Philadelphia on Aug. 26, giving up four runs in seven innings of work at Citi Field. Has pitched at least six innings in seven of his last eight starts.
Klein will be making just his second start of the season and fourth of his career. His one start this season saw him give up four runs on eight hits against the Giants on Aug. 3. Was charged with three runs on two hits in just 0.1 innings of relief against the Mets on Sept. 25.
