Phillies RHP Vince Velasquez (2-6, 4.91 ERA) at Rockies LHP Kyle Freeland (11-7, 3.71), 6:40 p.m., AT&T SportsNet
Since July 9, when he took a no-hitter into the ninth inning at Coors Field, Freeland has appeared in four games, three of them starts and one a long-relief appearance. In that stretch, the rookie lefty has a 1.99 ERA and a .185 batting average against him. He’s rolling. Even his nine-hit outing against the Nationals in D.C. last week ended in victory after he gave up just three runs. Velasquez, in his third season, has been unsuccessful against the Rockies. Six Colorado hitters have a career average better than .350 against him, led by Carlos Gonzalez, who is 5-for-9 in the matchup.
