"Next man up" as Mets host Phillies

NEW YORK -- The term "next man up" is most often associated with the NFL. But the injury-plagued New York Mets are winning with the mantra as they pursue a National League wild-card berth.

The next "next man up" is left-hander Sean Gilmartin, who tries to nudge New York closer to the playoffs when he makes his first start of the season Saturday night in the third contest of a four-game series against the Philadelphia Phillies at Citi Field.

The Mets won the first two games of the series including Friday, when they used six pitchers to piece together a 10-5 victory.
