Philadelphia Phillies (49-50) at St. Louis Cardinals (59-37)
Jonathan Pettibone (5-3, 3.89) vs. Shelby Miller (9-6, 2.92)
After an off day, the Phillies will try to get back to the .500 mark. They face a big test in this upcoming series against the St. Louis Cardinals, a team that is well in first place.
Tonight’s matchup will feature two young right-handed pitchers. Shelby Miller, 22, is doing very well in his first full Major League season. Miller throws a hard fastball in the mid-to-late 90s, and has a curveball and changeup to go along with it. Miller’s counterpart, 23-year old Jonathan Pettibone, has struggled on the road, having a 5.65 ERA away from Citizens Bank Park.
