SERIES PREVIEW

Phillies (30-41) at Twins (21-48)

Target Field

8:10PM EDT on CSN

Aaron Nola (5-6) 3.51 ERA

PHILLIES: Nola hopes to get back on track after struggling mightily in his last two starts. He has failed to pitch at least four innings in both starts as his ERA has jumped from 2.65 to 3.51 in that span.

Tyler Duffey (2-6) 5.56 ERA

TWINS: Duffey has yet to regain his poise after a strong start to the season and has given up at least four earned runs in each of his last six starts. In his last start on June 15 against the Angels, he struggled with falling behind batters.
