The Philadelphia Phillies return to the diamond after an off-day welcoming the Toronto Blue Jays to South Philadelphia for the first of a quick two-game set. 

The Phillies will look to build off of a 6-1 win on Sunday over the Boston Red Sox.  The Phils’ will start righty Aaron Nola.  Nola surrendered 7-hits and 4-earned runs in his last outing, a no decision at the Los Angeles Dodgers.  The Phils’ starter is 0-2 with a 5.48 ERA in four career starts against Toronto.  

The Blue Jays are fresh off a sweep of the Pirates in Pittsburgh.  The Jays outscored the Buccos 22-2 in the three-game sweep.  Toronto will lean on 25-year-old Alek Manoah, he will be making his first career start against the Phillies.  

First pitch is set for 7:10 PM/EDT from South Philadelphia.
