SERIES PREVIEW

Phillies (24-19) at Braves (12-30)

Citizens Bank Park

1:35PM EDT on CSN

Jerad Eickhoff (1-6) 4.44 ERA

PHILLIES: ickhoff faces the team that has given him the most trouble in 2016. The Braves knocked Eickhoff out in the fifth, scoring four runs against him on May 11. He bounced back nicely against Miami, though, allowing three runs over six innings Monday.

Casey Kelly (0-0) 3..00 ERA

BRAVES: Kelly has been promoted from Triple-A to fill Aaron Blair's rotation spot. The right-hander was a top prospect in the Red Sox organization and showed some promise for the Padres before undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2013.
