I think it is about time Thompson throws a gem.

Phillies at White Sox

US Cellular Field

8:10PM EDT on CSN

Jake Thompson (1-2) 8.79 ERA

PHILLIES: Thompson makes the fourth start of his career, and he hopes this time he can do something he did not accomplish in his previous three: pitch more than five innings. The No. 67 prospect in baseball, according to MLBPipeline.com, has struggled early.

Carlos Rodon (3-8) 4.26 ERA

WHITE SOX: Rodon allowed two runs on eight hits in six innings vs. the Indians, but he didn’t issue a walk while fanning five. He has a 12-8 record with a 2.54 ERA in 31 starts where he works at least six innings. He has made three straight quality starts.
