Phillies at Nationals

CBP South

7:05 PM on CSN

Alec Asher (0-0) 0.00 ERA

PHILLIES: Asher was called up on Tuesday after completing an 80-game suspension for PED usage. He will make his first start this season after going 0-6 with a 9.31 ERA in seven starts last season for the Phillies.

AJ Cole (1-1) 3.86 ERA

NATIONALS: Cole will make his fourth start of the season Thursday on the heels of his best outing yet. The rookie shut down the Mets on Friday at Citi Field, allowing only one run over six innings while besting Noah Syndergaard in a Nationals win.
