SERIES PREVIEW

Phillies (19-15) at Braves (8-24)

Turner Field

7:10PM EDT on CSN

Vince Velasquez (4-1) 2.17 ERA

PHILLIES: Velasquez has pitched very well this season despite stumbling a bit in his last outing. In Miami, the righty gave up seven hits and four runs over six innings of work, but he settled down. It was his first start this season with a no-decision.

Aaron Blair (0-2) 3.31 ERA

BRAVES: Blair is still looking for his first Major League win, but has been a pleasant surprise in his first three starts. He’s gone at least 5 innings in each start, allowing six earned runs and 13 hits in 16 1/3 innings, but also has walked nine.
