The Philadelphia Phillies face the New York Mets on Sunday, September 6th at Citi Field for game three of a four-game series. 

The New York Mets defeated the Philadelphia Phillies by the final score of 5-1 on Saturday night in game two of this series. After Rhys Hoskins hit a solo home run in the first for the Phillies, the offense was silenced by the Mets' staff. Seth Lugo rebounded well after allowing the homer, as he tossed 5.0 innings of one-run ball with eight strikeouts. The Mets hit Phillies prospect Spencer Howard well in this game, as the team was able to score three earned on Howard. The Mets would score at least one run in the 3rd-6th inning of the game, which was too much for Philadelphia to respond to. The Mets are now 18-22 on the year, as they are still in a decent spot to make a run this season. The Phillies are still three games above .500 at 19-16 on the year, as they remain in second place in the NL East.

The Philadelphia Phillies are sending right-hander Aaron Nola to the mound to face the Mets in this one. Nola is 4-2 with a 2.45 ERA through his first 44.0 innings of the season with the Phillies. Nola was fantastic in his last start, tossing 8.0 shutout innings while striking out nine against the Nationals on September 1st. 

The New York Mets will bring their ace in right-hander Jacob deGrom to the bump for Sunday's contest. deGrom is 2-1 with a 1.76 ERA through his first 41.0 innings of the season with the Mets. deGrom allowed four runs (only one of them being earned) in his last start against the Marlins on August 31st. 

With two of the National League's best starting pitchers on the mound on Sunday, game three of this series should be quite the entertaining one. Getting the Mets at home with deGrom on the bump with any price less than -180 seems like a steal to me, so I cannot pass it up in this spot. Although Nola was great on paper against the Mets in his last start, watching the game, it was noticeable that the Mets are more than capable of hitting him. I will take the Mets here.
