Phillies RHP Roy Halladay vs. Mets RHP Jenrry Mejia (0-3, 3.86)

WHO'S HOT: Shane Victorino: In three games in the leadoff spot, he is 8-for-16 with six runs, four steals and three RBI.

WHO'S NOT: Roy Halladay: Yeah, it's a stretch. After all, he's pitched seven innings in each of his last three starts, and has recorded quality starts in two of him. But he's allowed at least at least three earned runs in three straight outings for the first time season. So, by Halladay's lofty standards, he isn't hot.


Halladay vs. Mets: He faced them in back-to-back starts in mid-August, allowing five runs in seven innings in a 6-5 win at Citizens Bank Park and pitching eight scoreless innings at Citi Field in a 4-0 win. His other start against them also was a shutout: a 10-0 win on May 1.

Phillies vs. Jenrry Mejia: The 20-year-old spent most of the first 3 months of the season in the bullpen, facing the Phillies twice in relief (he threw two scoreless innings). He made his first big-league start on Sept. 4, allowing four runs in five innings of a 5-3 loss to the Cubs.

Phillies vs. Citi Field: In six games in the Mets' home ballpark this season, they have scored just seven runs.
