Phillies vs Cardinals

Citizens Bank Park

7:05PM EDT on CSN

Jerad Eickhoff (9-12) 3.87 ERA

PHILLIES: Eickhoff allowed four hits, two runs and struck out two in six innings last week against the White Sox. He got pulled despite throwing just 71 pitches because the Phillies are monitoring his workload as the season nears its end.

Max Scherzer (14-7) 2.92 ERA

NATIONALS: Scherzer was almost unhittable his last time out, pitching eight scoreless innings against a tough O's lineup, striking out 10 and allowing only two hits. In three starts against the Phillies this season, he has allowed six runs in 21 innings.
