PHI: LHP Hollywood Hamels (1-1, 1.20 ERA)
Hamels was terrific against the Cubs last season with a 2-0 record and 1.80 ERA. In 15 innings, he gave up only three earned runs.
CHC: LHP Ted Lilly (0-1, 9.72 ERA)
Lilly will be making his third start this season and his first away from the friendly confines of Wrigley Field. Lilly has not reached the sixth inning in either of his first two starts.
After last night’s win the Phils will look to make it 2 in a row behind the team’s ace in a #2 disguise, Cole Hamels. The Phils have never had much success against Lilly but with Burrell’s latest hot streak maybe he will rough up the southpaw Lilly. Cole Hamels pitched real well against the Cubbies last season as his 2-0 record and 1.80 ERA against them shows. I expect a win tonight in probably another nail biter and close , low scoring game. Game wrap-up will be up tonight at around 11pm. GO PHILS!
