After a 6-game road trip, the Mets are back at Citi Field to start a 6-game homestand against the Phillies. The two teams have been playing against each other a lot lately in the early part of the season, as this will already be the 4th series that the two teams are playing. After this series, the Mets and Phillies won't see each other again until August in Philadelphia, where they'll be playing the remaining 4 games of their season series.
