Location & Time of the Game

Citizens Bank Park – Philadelphia, PA at 6:40 PM ET

Probable Starting Pitchers

Phillies #27 – Aaron Nola

Blue Jays #6 – Alek Manoah

This is a battle between almost two identical pitchers (statically speaking). Both starting pitchers come into today’s contest with a very similar record, earned run average, and strikeouts. Philadelphia’s Nola is supporting a 2-2 record with a 4.64 ERA and 33 strikeouts. Toronto’s Manoah has a 1-2 record, a 4.71 ERA, and 31 strikeouts.

However, in the last three appearances, Nola has posted a 3.38 ERA and allowed 14 hits. He did strikeout 14 batters and walked only 3. This is good news and hopefully, the Phillies can get this homestand off on the right foot. They don’t want to fall too far behind in the division. Right now, they are 8 games behind the first-place Atlanta Braves.
