Phillies vs Cardinals

Citizens Bank Park

7:05PM EDT on CSN

Jake Thompson (1-3) 9.78 ERA

PHILLIES: Thompson’s 9.79 ERA is tied with Alec Asher for the second-highest ERA in franchise history for a pitcher that made four starts in his first four big league appearances. Mike Maddux posted a 9.98 ERA through his first four starts in 1986.

Tanner Roark (13-7) 2.99 ERA

NATIONALS: Roark's terrific season hit a skid his past two starts, as he allowed seven earned runs in 11 1/3 innings against the Braves and Orioles. Still, the righty ranks 10th among NL starters in ERA, fourth in innings pitched and seventh in WAR.
