The Mets latest road trip has them heading to Philadelphia, where they will begin a short two game series on Tuesday.

Once done in the City of Brotherly Love, the Flushing Nine will visit Colorado, then square off against the Marlins again in Miami.
The Amazin's left home with a 14-11 record, and are looking to improve upon their 6-3 mark on the road. Their recent success is attributable to their entire pitching staff, as well as the defense that has cleaned up its act.
