Jon Niese (3-3, 2.74 ERA) takes on Cole Hamels (1-3, 4.43) as the Mets and Phillies continue their five-game series Sunday at 1:35 pm in Philadelphia.

“There’s some tired bodies out there,” Terry Collins said after Saturday’s 14-inning win.
In case you missed it…
Rookie RHP Rafael Montero was demoted to make room on the roster Triple-A reliever Buddy Carlyle, who was needed after Terry Collins used every available relief pitcher in Friday’s 14-inning game.
Daisuke Matsuzaka will replace Montero in the starting rotation. His next scheduled start will be Wednesday at Wrigley Field.
Juan Lagares was scratched from Saturday’s start with a rib-cage issue. He pinch hit later in the game. He said the injury is “nothing bad.”
