Phillies Vs. Blue Jays: Saturday Game Time, TV Schedule And Probable Starters

The Philadelphia Phillies began their three-game series with the Toronto Blue Jays with a 3-0 loss on Friday, and it won't get any easier on Saturday, when they face Blue Jays ace, Ricky Romero.

Friday's loss snapped the Phillies' modest two-game winning streak – they're now 3-10 in their last 13 games. At 31-35 on the season, the Phillies are bringing up the rear in the National League East Division, behind the Washington Nationals, Atlanta Braves, New York Mets, and Miami Marlins. They're nine games out of first place, but only five games back of the Wild Card.

Cliff Lee will oppose Ricky Romero on Saturday. Lee – one of three aces on the Phillies staff – has yet to record a win this season because of injuries and lack of run support.

First pitch is scheduled for 1:07 p.m. ET.
