Toronto Blue Jays (17-17) at Philadelphia Phillies (15-17)
TOR: R.A. Dickey (2-3, 5.01)
PHI: A.J. Burnett (2-1, 2.06)
Game note: The Phils turn to Burnett to stop the skid against the Blue Jays. Ben Revere and Carlos Ruiz get the night off and J-Rol will hit from the DH spot once more.
Chooch’s absence is a little shocking considering his prior success against Dickey (6-19). J-Rol has had success against Dickey as well (7-23, 1 3B, 1 HR) while the Big Piece (3-15, 3 Ks) has struggled with the knuckleballer.
Lineup: Gwynn CF / Rollins DH/ Utley 2B / Howard 1B / Byrd RF / Brown LF / Nieves C / Asche 3B / Galvis SS
