MLB Game Preview: New York Mets vs. Philadelphia Phillies - Date: 4/17/2019 Kingery on fire as Phillies seek series win over Mets Scott Kingery will look to continue his torrid hitting when the host Philadelphia Phillies attempt to win the three-game series against the New York Mets on Wednesday.Since starting the season 0-for-4, Kingery is now a scorching 11-for-17.In Tuesday's 14-3 win, Kingery had three hits, a three-run home run and a career-high five RBIs. World's Best Handicapper. The 14 runs scored by the Phillies were a season high."I think just knowing a routine every day for me, I'm coming into the game with a lot of confidence," Kingery told NBC Sports Philadelphia. "Seeing these pitchers at least one time last year gives me confidence." Kingery, who can play numerous positions, may receive even more playing time since shortstop Jean Segura left Tuesday's game with a strained left hamstring.Phillies manager Gabe Kapler said that Segura will be re-evaluated Wednesday.Kingery, in just his second season, continues to prove his mettle."His bat is flying through the zone," Kapler said of Kingery. "He's got a lot of confidence." Jake Arrieta will start for the Phillies as he looks to stay sharp. Arrieta, who's 2-1 with a 2.25 ERA in three starts, won his 100th career game last Friday at Miami after allowing just five hits and one run in seven innings."Accomplishing something like I did tonight makes you appreciate everything you go through -- a lot of ups and downs and figuring some things out, forgetting some things, relearning them," Arrieta told reporters after the win over Miami. "This game is very humbling and I'll never forget that." Arrieta is 2-3 with a 2.34 ERA in 10 career outings against the Mets.The Mets will turn to starter Zack Wheeler, who owns a 1-1 record and 7.47 ERA in three starts this season. In Wheeler's last start, he gave up six hits and two runs in a 6-2 victory at Atlanta."I was actually watching a video of last year and watching myself," Wheeler told reporters after his last start. "I noticed I was a lot slower out of the windup. I got a stopwatch and tried it. I was way faster so I slowed myself down and was more consistent." Wheeler is 3-0 with a 3.96 ERA lifetime in Philadelphia and 4-1 with a 3.36 ERA in 10 total starts against the Phillies.Mets outfielder Brandon Nimmo left Tuesday's game in the first inning with what the team called a stiff neck. Nimmo told reporters after the game that his neck "locked up" and he expected to be held out of the lineup on Wednesday.Another concern for the Mets has to be the taxed bullpen, which actually did a solid job after starter Steven Matz faced eight batters and failed to record one out in Tuesday's loss.Drew Gagnon pitched 5 1/3 innings and Paul Sewald threw 2 2/3 innings in relief. Gagnon threw 97 pitches and became the first Mets pitcher to throw more than five innings of relief since Shaun Marcum pitched the 13th through the 20th innings in Miami in 2013."Drew Gagnon and Paul Sewald should be commended," Mets manager Mickey Callaway said. "They did their best, and saved us, and probably helped us win a game in the next few days. It was unbelievable." --Field Level Media
