Mets-Phillies play 5 games worth of baseball in 4 days

The Mets have played three straight extra-inning games, logging 14 innings each Friday and Saturday and 11 on Sunday. Since Thursday, the Mets and Phillies have played 48 innings, with another game scheduled for Monday night.

It is the first time MLB teams played three straight games of at least 11 innings since the Mariners faced the Blue Jays in 1991.

The Mets tied their franchise record playing three straight extra-inning games. The last time the Mets played three straight extra-inning games was 2001 against the Astros in Houston.

Murphy looked like he was falling asleep while standing up yesterday. He needs a day off.

All these extra inning games, the game today on a travel day...this is setting up for Tuesday to be a disaster in Chicago.  I wonder if Wheeler would travel ahead of the team to get a normal night's rest? Though I guess maybe these guys are used to traveling late and sleeping in?

@hankypanky He's the best hitter on the team he's not allowed a day off. Also there is no player on the bench who can play second….not that he's very good at it either.
