MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at Toronto Blue Jays Nathan Ray Seebeck-USA TODAY Sports

After being shut out by an uninspiring array of Blue Jays pitchers on Saturday night, the Phillies will try to score a run - and more importantly, win the game and series - against the Toronto Blue Jays in Dunedin, FL on Sunday afternoon.

That might be easier said than done, because today’s lineup is missing both Bryce Harper and J.T. Realmuto, who are dealing with injuries.

It’s certainly not the most intimidating lineup the Phillies have ever run out there, but on the other hand, Blue Jays lefty Robbie Ray isn’t the most intimidating starter they’ve faced.

Ray will be opposed by Chase Anderson. The big question for Anderson is: Will he be able to record an out in the sixth inning? He’s failed to do so in any of his seven starts so far this season, although he came close his last time out.

Here’s the lineup he’ll be facing:

Game time is 1:07 PM and will be televised locally on NBC Sports Philadelphia.
