This is the 2nd meeting of the season between the Blue Jays and the Phillies. Including tonight the 2 teams play 3 more times this season.

Prediction: Tonight it’s expected that newly acquired shortstop Troy Tulowitzki will make his Blue Jays debut. I think that will give the Jays some momentum after they’ve struggled for a little bit.
