Covers Preview - Right-hander Vince Velasquez was 8-2 at the All-Star break last year before going winless over his last nine starts and he has carried those struggles into this season. Velasquez will try to break out of his funk when the skidding Philadelphia Phillies attempt to avoid a four-game sweep against the visiting Colorado Rockies on Thursday.
