PHI: RHP Adam Eaton (0-0, 3.95 ERA)
The right-hander has turned in two quality starts for the Phillies, rebounding nicely from a rough 2007. Eaton held the Mets to three runs in six innings on Thursday, before New York went on to win in 12 innings. Manager Charlie Manuel said that he has been impressed by Eaton’s aggressiveness in the strike zone. In six career starts against Houston, Eaton is 3-1 with a 4.42 ERA.
HOU: RHP Shawn Chacon (0-0, 3.75 ERA)
Chacon turned in a quality start Tuesday, but didn’t factor in the decision. He yielded three runs in six innings in a loss to St. Louis. He had control issues early, throwing more than 30 pitches in a second inning during which he walked three. Chacon said he didn’t think he’d go deep in the game after throwing so many pitches early. Chacon pitched in three games against the Phillies last year, allowing four runs over 2 2/3 innings. In his career, Chacon is 1-2 with four saves and a 5.87 ERA over 10 games vs. the Phils.
Hot off their first series win of the season the Phils today will take on the Astros. That means Ed Wade is back in town and gets to watch his fisher price team he built get slaughtered by the talent he developed. Enjoy the show Ed Wade. I’ll be at the game tonight so the wrap-up will be up after 11pm.
