I hate the Cardinals a lot.

Phillies vs Cardinals

Citizens Bank Park

1:35PM EDT on CSN

Vince Velasquez (8-5) 4.14 ERA

PHILLIES: Velasquez has a 7.24 ERA in his last five starts as he has struggled with his command and ability to pitch deep into games. The Phillies are monitoring his workload. He might only make three or four more starts this season.

Mike Leake (8-9) 4.78 ERA

CARDINALS: Leake logged a second straight quality start his last time out and retired 16 straight at one point. Walks have hurt him in his last two starts, but they’ve been a step in the right direction after allowing 20 runs in his previous 16 innings.
