What to watch: It’s only August, but games like this are starting to be “must-win” games for the Mets or their season will be finished soon. The Phillies have won the last five games that Hamels started but he’s been hit at times giving up 7 runs over his last two starts. The Mets have lost the last two games Santana started. He got rocked by the Cards for 7 runs then gave up 4 to the Braves in losses.
