Game 3 – 1:35pm
In the series finale, the Phillies are scheduled to send Nick Pivetta to the mound. Meanwhile, the Blue Jays are to send veteran lefty J.A. Happ to toe the rubber to face his former team for a Sunday afternoon ballgame.
Nick Pivetta: The twenty-five-year-old righty Nick Pivetta is starting his 2018 season strong, as he is entering game three with a 4-2 record. Out of ten games started, he’s struck out 60 batters this season. As he’s entering his second season in the big leagues, he has never faced the Blue Jays.
J.A. Happ: Happ started out his big league career in Philadelphia back in 2007 when he was just twenty-four years old. Flash forward a few years, he is still in the big leagues – this time a pitcher for the Toronto Blue Jays. Philadelphia had traded Happ to Houston in the Roy Oswalt deal in 2010, and the righty has been traded three times since then.
In his twelve seasons in the major leagues, Happ is entering game three with a 6-3 record.
