SERIES PREVIEW

Phillies (28-30) vs Cubs (40-16)

Citizens Bank Park

7:05PM EDT on CSN

Jerad Eickhoff (2-8) 3.93 ERA

PHILLIES: Eickhoff has been the Phillies' hard-luck pitcher this season. He’s made seven of 11 quality starts but has only two wins to show for it; the Phils have averaged 2.58 runs per nine innings while he's been on the mound.

Kyle Hendricks (4-4) 2.84 ERA

CUBS: One start after throwing a complete game vs. the Phillies, Hendricks went eight innings vs. the Dodgers. He's going to hate to leave Wrigley Field. The right-hander has a 1.99 ERA at home, having given up nine earned runs over 40 2/3 innings.
