What to watch as Phillies try to go 5-0


The Philadelphia Phillies will look to go 5-0 for the first time in 105 years and win the series over the New York Mets Tuesday night.

Here’s what to watch:

Anderson makes Phillies debut

Chase Anderson, Phillies fifth starter, pitches tonight against Mets right-hander Marcus Stroman. Number four starter Matt Moore debuted Monday and looked sharp for two innings before unraveling in the next two. He allowed two runs, four walks, and four hits with four strikeouts over 3⅓ innings.

Could we see Hale and Velaquez?

Anderson is not known for going deep into games so it seems that we could see one or both of Vince Velasquez and David Hale. Keep in mind that the Phillies want to keep Velasquez stretched out so that he’s a realistic option as a spot starter in case of injury. Ideally, you don’t want him transitioning from one-inning stints to 60-75 pitches.
