Apple TV+ will host Friday’s matchup between the New York Mets (71-82) and the Philadelphia Phillies (84-69), with first pitch set for 7:05 p.m. ET at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Tylor Megill (8-8, 4.94 ERA) will get the start for the Mets and go up against Phillies righty Taijuan Walker (15-5, 4.40).

Philadelphia took the opener of this four-game set with a 5-4 victory last night. With the game tied 4-4 in the bottom of the sixth, Nick Castellanos belted a solo shot to left-center field to put the Phils on top for good. That long ball came right after Mark Vientos launched a solo homer in the top of the sixth to tie the game for the Mets.
Philadelphia enters the game as a -162 favorite on the moneyline over at DraftKings Sportsbook, making New York a +136 underdog. The run total is set at 9.
