It’s rebound time for the Phillies after being shutout Friday night
For those who stayed up to watch the Phillies on Friday night it was an evening of disappointment. A team with playoff hopes was shutout by a team that’s lost 71 games this year, something that should never happen.
Now the Phillies hope to return the favor by sending their ace to the mound in San Diego.

Lockett is making his third career start and fourth major league appearance tonight, but is not among the Padres top prospects. In his last start, he went five innings against the Cubs allowing five runs off nine hits.
Prior to the game the Phillies announced Zach Eflin would be taken off the 25-man roster to make room for newly acquired bat Justin Bour. Eflin is likely to return for Thursday’s double-header and not miss a start. It’s simply a “roster manipulation” to keep the bench full before another move is needed for the double-header.
