EARLIER

NEW YORK -- The Phillies (25-24) had their four-game win streak snapped with Sunday’s 8-3 loss in St. Louis and now begin a three-game series at Citi Field against the New York Mets (27-21). Cole Hamels (7-1, 2.17) faces Jonathon Niese (3-2, 4.29) in the series opener today.

The Phillies are looking to pay back the Mets, who swept them May 7-9 at Citizens Bank Park.

Since the Phillies lost to Miami, 6-2, in Hamels' first start of the season, they have won the last eight games the lefthander has started.
