PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – After going 3-3 on a six-game roadtrip through Atlanta and Washington, which wrapped up with last night’s 9-3 win over the Nationals, the Phillies are back home tonight to open an eight-game homestand with the the first of three against the Mets.

This will be the second series of the season between these two teams.  The Mets took two of three at Citizens Bank Park back in mid-April.  LHP Jonathon Niese won one of those games with 6 2/3 shutout innings and he will get the start for the Mets tonight.

Roy Halladay gets the call for the Phillies in this one.  He is 3-2 in 2012 and coming off perhaps his worst outing as a Phillie.  Last week in Atlanta, Halladay blew a 6-0 lead, allowing 8 earned runs on 12 hits in 5 1/3 innings.  He got a no-decision in a game the Phillies eventually lost in gut-wrenching fashion in 11 innings 15-13.

KYW’s Matt Leon spoke with David Murphy, Phillies columnist for the Philadelphia Daily News, about the Fightins and what to look for tonight.
