Phillies Vs. Blue Jays: Sunday Game Time, TV Schedule, Probable Pitchers

The Philadelphia Phillies have just four wins in the month of June. It looked like they might add a fifth on Saturday, but the Toronto Blue Jays beat them with an RBI single in extra innings, two innings after the Phillies blew a 5-2 lead. On Sunday, Philadelphia looks to avoid the sweep.

Right-hander Kyle Kendrick (2-6), 5.08 ERA) will need to be sharper than he was in his last start when he surrendered six earned runs in four innings to the Twins. In the start before that, Kendrick also picked up a loss after allowing five earned runs in less than six innings against the Dodgers.

Brandon Morrow was originally scheduled to start, but he landed on the disabled list earlier in the week, giving the Phillies something of a break. In his place is Brett Cecil, who was promoted from Triple-A on Friday. Cecil has a 4.64 ERA in 65 career starts. This will be his first major league appearance of the season.
