Preview: Phillies call up two players for tonight’s game, Zack Wheeler gets the ball at 7:07
The Phillies take the field tonight at 7:07 EST looking for a series split with the Toronto Blue Jays. Zack Wheeler (8-4, 2.46 ERA) gets the ball for the Phils, going up against Ross Stripling (4-3, 3.34 ERA).
Jose Berrios K’d 13 Phils on Tuesday night, leading the Jays to a 4-3 win, taking the series opener. Bryson Stott went yard, but it wasn’t enough for Philadelphia, as they fell to 46-42 on the season. The team will look to get back in the win column tonight, with their ace on the mound.
Zack Wheeler is set to make his first start since being snubbed from the All-Star Game. The Blue Jays will also be without their manager, who was fired just a few hours ago by GM Ross Atkins.
