The Phillies-Mets rivalry began with an 11-9 Phillies’ win at the Polo Grounds on May 11, 1962. Sixty-one years later, the NL East rivals have met more than 1,000 times
Here’s a look at the series history, all-time records, wins, and more:
Phillies vs. Mets Series History
The Phillies and Mets have played 1,055 times, with the Phillies controlling the series 541-513-1. In 2022, both the Phillies and Mets made the postseason in the same year despite 50 years of previous matchups.
The rivalry was not always this fierce, with many meaningless 20th-century matchups. When the Phillies were good, the Mets were bad, and vice-versa.
Phillies vs. Mets All-Time Records
|World Series Titles||2||2|
The Phillies were founded 79 years before the Mets, but each club has only two World Series. Philadelphia was primarily a laughing stock in the early-mid 1900s, with the franchise having to wait 97 years from its inception before its first championship in 1980.
The 2023 season should offer plenty of added sparks to this rivalry, with both teams vying for playoff contention and the division crown.
