After four straight losses to the Mets, Aaron Nola stopped the bleeding with a gem on Friday night in the Phillies' 7-1 win over the Padres.
Starting pitcher Alec Asher, part of the Cole Hamels trade, will make his major-league debut for the Phillies on Sunday, and Jerome Williams will be sent to the bullpen.
The Phillies on Friday placed Elvis Araujo on the 15-day disabled list with a left groin strain and recalled Nefi Ogando from Triple A Lehigh Valley.
