The Phillies (34-62) are 5-4 out of the All-Star break, but they get a big test Monday when the American League’s best team, the Houston Astros (65-33), comes to town for the opener in a three-game set.
Philadelphia will send Vince Velasquez (2-5, 5.14 ERA) to the mound to face fellow right-hander Brad Peacock (8-1, 2.49) on Monday in the series opener.
This game matches up the No. 5 (Philadelphia Phillies) and the No. 1 (Houston Astros) teams, according to current MLB Power Rankings.
Take the Houston Astros on the moneyline. Despite, yesterday’s loss to the Orioles, the Astros will come out strong and bounce back for an easy win over the Phillies.
