The Mets are looking to sweep the Phillies in this matchup on Sunday Night Baseball. For the Mets, Bassitt is coming off of a start against the Cardinals where he gave up 8 runs over 4.1 innings. For the Phillies, Wheeler has allowed 5 runs in his last 32.2 innings pitched. The Phillies have the better pitcher on the mound, but I really like the Mets lineup. I am going to take the Phillies in this matchup due to Wheeler’s recent success.
