David Wright
is in the starting lineup for the first time since Monday. Here's Wright talking about his pinkie injury, via Adam Rubin:

"During the game last night I kind of tested it out a little bit and it felt good, and it feels a lot better today, obviously. I think I'm ready. I got a lot of treatment yesterday, and a lot of the techniques that the hand specialist gave me to speed up the recovery, I was just doing it nonstop, and it surprisingly felt pretty good. So during the game I messed around with it a little bit and it felt OK. And then I took it to the next level this morning and it feels pretty good."

Let's hope "feels pretty good" isn't code for "I really should be on the DL." Here is the Mets' lineup:

1. Ruben Tejada, SS
2. Daniel Murphy, 2B
3. David Wright, 3B
4. Ike Davis, 1B
5. Jason Bay, LF
6. Lucas Duda, RF
7. Kirk Nieuwenhuis, CF
8. Josh Thole, C
9. Jon Niese, LHP

And the Phillies' lineup:

1. Shane Victorino, CF
2. Placido Polanco, 3B
3. Jimmy Rollins, SS
4. Hunter Pence, RF
5. John Mayberry, LF
6. Ty Wigginton, 1B
7. Freddy Galvis, 2B
8. Brian Schneider, C
9. Vance Worley, RHP
