After yet another series loss the Phillies have to contend with the best team in the National League. Here’s how to watch the inevitable drubbing.

After making the shortest start of his career, Eickhoff was able to bounce back and give up just two runs in six innings with eight strikeouts. His ERA was as low as 1.98 this season, but it is now up to 4.53 after eight starts this year.
The Phils will face Hoffman, who was just recalled for Monday’s game. In his only start this year at the major-league level, Hoffman gave up three runs in 5.1 innings to the Dodgers May 11. In seven Triple-A starts this year, Hoffman has a 3.46 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, 2.36 strikeout-to-walk ratio.
