PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – After getting their first win for interim manager Ryne Sandberg on Sunday with a 3-2 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Phillies welcome the Colorado Rockies to Citizens Bank Park for the opener of a four-game series.

Sunday’s win snapped a four-game losing streak for the Phillies and it also put them in position to win back-to-back games for the first time since they won three-straight July 13th, 14th and 19th (second and third wins were separated by the all-star break).

Ethan Martin makes his fourth Major League start for the Phillies in this one. The right-hander is 1-2 for the Phillies this season, with a 6.28 ERA. In his last start on Tuesday, he lost to the Braves, 3-1, allowing the three runs in five innings of work.

Colorado will start right-hander Jeff Manship who has lost both his MLB starts this season, putting together a 7.20 ERA in the process. he has made two career appearances against the Phillies in his career, one in 2010 and the other in 2012. In those two games he has allowed four runs in 7 1/3 innings of work.

The Phillies lost two out of three the first time they played the Rockies. That series was in Denver, June 14th-16th.

KYW’s Matt Leon spoke with Ryan Lawrence of the Philadelphia Daily News about the first few games of the Ryne Sandberg era and Monday night’s game.
