PHILLIES’ MORGAN LOOKS FOR ANOTHER QUALITY START AGAINST METS

By Sam Bush

The Phillies get back to work tonight against the Mets at Citi Field.

Mets right-hander Bartolo Colon (11-7, 3.36 ERA) faces Phillies left-hander Adam Morgan (1-7, 6.21 ERA) in the series opener.

Colon is 1-1 with a 2.04 ERA in three starts this season against the Phillies, and the right-hander is 2-1 with a 2.25 ERA through four August starts.

Morgan allowed one run in six-plus innings last weekend against the Cardinals. It was the first time since May 21 that Morgan allowed two or fewer runs in six or more innings, when he allowed two runs in six innings against the Braves. He went 0-5 with a 7.65 ERA in eight starts in between.
