Phillies' Velasquez looks to get groove back vs. Braves

A struggling veteran and a highly valued rookie trying to find his way square off on Friday when the Philadelphia Phillies host the Atlanta Braves in the opener of a four-game series between the two National League East rivals.

Veteran Phillies right-hander Vince Velasquez (0-0, 12.00 ERA) will try to find the answer against a Braves team that has troubled him throughout his career. He will be opposed by Atlanta's Kyle Wright (0-1, 7.50), a 2017 first-round draft pick with a chance to nail down a spot in the team's unsettled rotation.

The Braves are coming off a 7-2 homestand and just took two of three from Toronto, winning the finale on a walk-off home run by Nick Markakis. The Phillies defeated the New York Yankees 5-4 on Thursday to split their four-game season series.
