ESPN will host Friday’s matchup between the New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies with first pitch set for 7:05 p.m. ET. The game will take place at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia and will air on SNY in the Mets market and on NBCSP in the Phillies market. Marcus Stroman and Kyle Gibson are starting for New York and Philadelphia, respectively.

If you aren’t around a TV to check out this MLB matchup, you can stream the game via WatchESPN or the ESPN app. But keep in mind that you need a cable-login subscription. If you don’t have a cable login to access ESPN for a live stream, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream the game.

The Mets hold a half game lead on the Phillies in the NL East heading into this nationally-televised three-game series. After Friday’s ESPN game, Saturday’s game will air on FS1, and Sunday’s will air on TBS.

The two teams have equal moneyline odds at DraftKings Sportsbook, with both installed at -110. Total runs is 9.5 and is also evenly priced at -110.
