The Phillies will try to salvage a win as they take on the Mets in the final game of their three-game series at Citizen’s Bank Park.
Tuesday night’s game was ugly for the Phillies. The Mets scored 14 runs on seven home runs, including three to Yoenis Cespedes and a 448-foot bomb from Lucas Duda into Ashburn Alley. Clay Buchholz left early with an elbow strain and Adam Morgan pitched so poorly he was optioned to Triple-A after the game.
The two teams will face off one last time in this series Wednesday night. The Mets have already secured the series win and will go for the sweep while the Phils will try to salvage one win from the series.
Here is everything you need to know about how to watch or listen to the game:

After facing two top-tier pitchers in Jacob DeGrom and Matt Harvey, the Phils will get a bit of a break as the Mets send Wheeler to the mound. In his first start this season -and his first since 2014 – Wheeler gave up five runs in four innings.
Meanwhile, Velasquez will take the mound for Philadelphia. He struck out ten in four innings in his first start against Washington but was also tagged for four runs. Last year against the Mets, Velasquez had a 1.76 ERA with 20 strikeouts but could only throw 15.1 innings.
Above is tonight’s lineup. It is the same as Tuesday’s besides Velasquez.
