The Philadelphia Phillies and Kyle Kendrick (8-9, 4.01 ERA) will try to clinch a series win against the Cincinnati Reds and keep the Phillies' dim playoff hopes alive. Kendrick has won his last four starts, but the Reds will answer with Mat Latos (11-4, 3.79), who had a 2.61 ERA over the month of August. The Reds will give leadoff man Zack Cozart a rest, starting Wilson Valdez at shortstop in his place and bumping Drew Stubbs up to the top of the order.
The Phillies' Jimmy Rollins will be trying for his 2,000th career hit on Tuesday. If he can get it, he'll be the fourth Phillies player to reach that milestone.
