The Philadelphia Phillies snapped out of their funk on Friday, and the New York Mets hope their turn comes Saturday when the teams square off in Queens. Philadelphia had lost four straight prior to its 3-2, 11-inning win in the series opener. Meanwhile, the loss was the seventh in eight games for New York, which used seven pitchers and could benefit from a long outing by Dillon Gee in this one.Gee enters this matchup with a career-long streak of 16 scoreless innings and will be opposed by Kyle Kendrick, who has not won since August. Mets star David Wright, who had two hits and a pair of walks on Friday, brings a seven-game hitting streak into Saturday's contest. Former New York outfielder Marlon Byrd delivered the decisive double in the series opener but was held below two hits for just the second time in eight games this month.TV: 7:10 p.m. ET, CSN (Philadelphia), WPIX (New York)PITCHING MATCHUP: Phillies RH Kyle Kendrick (0-3, 3.58 ERA) vs. Mets RH Dillon Gee (3-1, 2.51)Kendrick has not won in his last 13 starts dating to Aug. 13, 2013 although he has generally been solid this season.
