PHI: Alec Asher, RHP (0-5, 7.52)
NYM: Logan Verrett, RHP (1-2, 3.40)
A Note for Today:
After having his best start in a Phillies uniform, Alec Asher will be on the mound tonight in what may be his final look of the 2015 whirlwind season.
Asher went 7.0 innings, giving up only 3 hits and 1 run with 4 strikeouts. After not making it out of the fifth inning in any of his prior starts, it took the Miami Marlins to give him his best showing, in Miami, where they gathered a 1-0 loss.
Last night the Phillies took down Bartolo Colon and the Mets with a 4-3 win. The Phillies will look to avoid 100 losses in the season by winning 2 of 3 in the last two series here in Philadelphia.
Just about the same lineup as last night, Brian Bogusevic moves up a spot to the 7 hole. The Phillies look to continue their quest to avoid 100 losses for the year.
Tomorrow’s game has been rescheduled to a 12:00 pm start due to rain moving into the area.
First pitch is at 7:05 EST.
Galvis SS, Herrera CF, Altherr LF, Ruf 1B, Asche 3B, Blanco 2B, Bogusevic RF, Rupp C, Asher RHP
