The Philadelphia Phillies (15-10) and Cincinnati Reds (14-10) will finish their season series on Thursday, with the Phillies hoping to come away with a split of this four-game set before heading to the West Coast.

After losing two in a row, the Phillies come into action today 3.0 games behind the Atlanta Braves in the NL East, while the Reds are 1.5 games back in the tight NL Central. Philadelphia will welcome Bryce Harper back to the lineup. He was away from the team for the birth of his third child.

The Phillies didn't do themselves any favors on Wednesday, losing 7-4 at Great American Ball Park. The relievers stumbled out of the bullpen, wasting Spencer Turnbull's excellent start. Despite his imminent removal from the rotation, Turnbull gave the Phillies' decision-makers every reason to second-guess themselves.

The right-hander held the Reds to one run on three hits over five innings. He struck out eight, walked three and now boasts the second-lowest ERA (1.33) among qualified NL starters. Unfortunately, the 3-1 lead he turned over to the bullpen didn't last. Seranthony Domínguez, Matt Strahm, Gregory Soto and José Alvarado combined to give up six runs on seven hits over three innings.

He comes into the game today with a 2.30 ERA and 0.89 WHIP with 33 strikeouts in 25 1/3 innings over five starts. He struck out 10 Reds batters over six innings on April 3.
  • Nick Martinez (0-0) will come out of the bullpen to make his third start, with Frankie Montas going on the IL. He jumped into the rotation for two starts to begin the year and gave up eight earned runs on 14 hits through 10 innings.
