Three matchups to watch
Phillies hitters vs. Dickey: The Phillies hadn't faced a knuckleballer in almost 4 years before Boston's Tim Wakefield shut them out for eight innings on Sunday. Now they'll face their second knuckleball pitcher in 3 days.
David Wright vs. Moyer: The Mets' third baseman has struck out 60 times in 157 at-bats so far this season, but is 21-for-50 (.420) with four doubles, four homers and 14 RBI against the Phillies' 47-year-old lefthander in his career.
Rod Barajas vs. Phillies: The Mets' catcher is a career .239 hitter. He spent one forgettable season with the Phils in 2007. And now he kills them. In 22 career games against Philadelphia, he's 21-for-62 (.339) with 14 runs scored, eight homers, 17 RBI and a 1.169 OPS.
Jason Bay: The Mets' leftfielder, hitting just .239 as recently as May 8, is 24-for-54 (.444) in his last 15 games with a .516 OBP. After hitting just one home run all season, he went deep twice Sunday night to help the Mets beat the Yankees.
Jamie Moyer: He has held opponents to a .143 batting average in his last three starts. He's 2-1, 2.42 in those games.
The Phillies' lineup: It is 36-for-187 (.193) in the last six games while averaging 2.5 runs and going 2-4.
The Mets: Despite taking two out of three from the Yankees, the Mets have lost 10 of their last 14 games as rumors about manager Jerry Manuel's job security continue to simmer. Their bullpen has combined for 12 losses, most in the majors.
