Brett Anderson will start on seven days rest after making his last two starts on eight and six days rest, looking to last seven innings for the eighth time in his last 13 starts. Old friend Aaron Harang was 4-3 with a 1.82 ERA in his first nine starts, with 44 strikeouts and 13 walks in 59⅓ innings.

Zack Greinke looks to recover from his horrific slump that has seen him allow four total runs in his last two starts. That's one more run than in his previous eight starts combined.
The first stint for David Buchanan this year was rough. He was 0-5 with an 8.76 ERA in five starts in April, with 15 walks and 12 strikeouts. Since his July return to the Phillies, the right-hander has a 3.38 ERA in three starts, with 11 strikeouts and three walks.
