After a three-game sweep of the Houston Astros, the Phillies look to continue their winning streak as the New York Mets come to town Friday night to open a four-game series.

Ryan Howard's hot bat lifted the Phils to a win with a grand slam in the eighth inning Thursday night, and he'll hit cleanup again after going 5 for 14 with two homers and eight RBIs against Houston (see game notes).

A.J. Burnett will take the mound in the first game and will look to rebound from his less-than-stellar outing in Washington, where he pitched just 1.2 innings on Saturday.

Domonic Brown is missing from the lineup for the ninth straight game, with Grady Sizemore taking his place in the outfield once again.

Here's the full lineup:

1. Ben Revere, CF
2. Jimmy Rollins, SS
3. Chase Utley, 2B
4. Ryan Howard, 1B
5. Marlon Byrd, RF
6. Grady Sizemore, LF
7. Carlos Ruiz, C
8. Cody Asche, 3B
9. A.J. Burnett, P
