The Philadelphia Phillies and the Chicago Cubs will both be trying to pick up a win on Monday when they battle at Wrigley Field.

The Phillies will trot Vince Velasquez out to the mound in this one. Right hander Velasquez has a 1-2 record and a 6.33 ERA this season.

The Cubs will counter Velasquez with Brett Anderson. Left hander Anderson has a 3.54 ERA to go along with a 2-0 record this season.

Velasquez is coming off his first win of the year, a triumph over Miami on Wednesday in which he allowed three runs over a season-high 6 1/3 innings. The 24-year-old Californian has recorded only five strikeouts in his last two turns after registering 17 in his first two outings. Velasquez made two starts against the Cubs last season, surrendering seven runs in 4 2/3 frames at Chicago while throwing only two pitches at home on June 8 before leaving with bicep soreness.

Anderson bounced back from a rough outing against Milwaukee by allowing just one earned run over six innings in a win at Pittsburgh last Monday. The 29-year-old Texan struggled with his control, however, as he issued six walks against the Pirates after handing out a total of five free passes in his first three turns. Anderson has made two career starts versus Philadelphia, going 1-1 with a 3.27 ERA.

Oddsmakers currently have the Cubs listed as 169-moneyline favorites versus the Phillies, while the game’s total is sitting at 10½.

The Chicago Cubs’ nine-game road trip ended in disappointing fashion, but they hope to get back on track at home Monday as they open a four-game series with the slumping Philadelphia Phillies. Chicago began its trek by winning four of its first five contests but went on to lose three of the last four, including a 6-2 decision at Boston on Sunday.

Kris Bryant has been doing his part offensively for the Cubs, as he homered for the second time in three contests and enters Monday with an 11-game hitting streak. Philadelphia’s six-game winning streak has become a distant memory after a lost weekend in Los Angeles, where it dropped three straight to the Dodgers. The slide has not slowed down Freddy Galvis, however, as the 27-year-old delivered an RBI single in the first inning of Sunday’s 5-3 setback to extend his hitting streak to 12 games. The Phillies will need their relievers to keep the ball in the park more often, as they have served up 20 home runs in 74 1/3 innings – the worst mark in the majors.
