There will be day baseball and it begins at 1PM Eastern Time on MLB Network as the Philadelphia Phillies will host the San Francisco Giants. The Phillies will start right hander Vince Velasquez as he opposes Giants lefty Matt Moore. Game 1 of this series was played on Tuesday and it was a wild one as the Phillies blew a 6-0 lead early on their way to a 13-8 victory. The Philadelphia bats got to Giants starter Madison Bumgarner for 8 runs only four earned and ten hits with two homers over five innings. It was an 8-8 tie until the Phillies pushed across 5 runs on the San Francisco bullpen. The Giants have struggled for wins since the All Star Break as the Dodgers have closed major ground in the NL West race. Moore will make his debut for the Giants as he was acquired at the trading deadline from the Tampa Bay Rays. The left hander is coming off a nice start at the LA Dodgers on July 27th allowing no earned runs and four hits over 6 2/3rd innings in a 3-1 victory. He is 7-7 with an ERA of 4.08. Velasquez has pitched well for Philadelphia with a mark of 8-3 in 18 starts and ERA of 3.32.

At 7PM Eastern Time on MLB Network the New York Yankees will host the New York Mets. The Yankees will start righty Nathan Eovaldi as he opposes Mets righty Bartolo Colon. This series moves to Yankee Stadium after the teams split the two games at Citi Field. All the talk has been about the Yankees selling off their roster in exchange for youth. Colon has struggled by allowing five runs or greater in three of his past five starts. On July 30th at home to Colorado the veteran surrendered five earned runs and seven hits over seven innings of work in a 7-2 defeat. Eovaldi looks to rebound after a loss at Tampa Bay where he gave up three earned runs and three hits in six innings of a 6-3 road defeat.
