The Phils would finally get a run in the ninth off of a hit and three walks given up by Cubs’ reliever Carlos Marmol, before he would finally put out the fire. The game will be played at Citizens Bank Park and is to start at 7:05 pm EDT.

The Phils will send to the mound Vance Worley (2-1, 2.16), who is coming off a victory over the D-backs on April 24, as he went six strong innings, giving up only a run on five hits and a walk, while striking out six, in the Phils’ 8-5 win.

The Phils tied up their four-game series last night as they defeated the Cubs, 5-2, thanks mainly to a four-run fourth inning, as the offense scored twice on two bases loaded situations, with a two-run single by Carlos Ruiz and a two-run double by Jimmy Rollins, as they were able to get to Randy Wells the second time that they faced him in the game, as they finally showed some patience at the plate, as they took three walks in the inning. A solo home run was later added by Ruiz in the sixth. The five runs would be enough for starter Joe Blanton, who, despite giving up a first inning run, would keep the Cubs under control, striking out eight batters, as well as getting a lot of ground ball outs, as he kept the ball down against the Cubs’ batters. Chad Qualls came in to relieve Blanton in the eighth when he ran into a runners on the corners, one out, situation, who got out of it, although giving up a run as a potential doubleplay ball is ruined as it bounced off of the mound, instead becoming a force out. Jonathan Papelbon then came in to pitch a 1-2-3 ninth, collecting his seventh save of the year in seven attempts.

 The Phils will today send to the mound Kyle Kendrick (0-1, 9.39), who is coming off a very awful start against the D-backs on April 23, as he went only three innings plus, as he gave up seven runs on eleven hits and a walk, while he struck out only one batter, in the Phils’ 9-5 lost. In facing the Cubs, he has a record of 0-0 with a 0-0 ERA, as he struck out two Cubbies. He will be out to recover from his bad first start, while trying to give the Phils the win.

Career-wise, he has a 1-1 record against the Phils, with a 1.29 ERA, as he struck out sixteen Phils. He will be out to win his second start of the season. The Phils, as they hear the wonderful news that Ryan Howard will be headed back to Florida to start working out so that he can rejoin the main club, will be out to tie up their reason season record, while hoping to stay within striking distance of both the Nationals and the Braves.

The Phils continue their trip to San Diego, as the put Cole Hamels onto the mound.

The Phils, as their offense continue to act anemic, are still able to bring an end a two-game losing streak as they are able to push across the plate two runs, single runs in the first and ninth innings, while being unable to add more runs in either inning, as Vance Worley threw a good game against the Padres, pitching himself out of three jams, one of which was helped by the Padres running themselves into a strikeout-doubleplay to end a runners on the corners, one out, threat.

The Phils (6-7, 5th East) will continue their four-game series with the Padres (3-11, 5th West) with a night game later tonight.

Career-wise, Hamels have controled his home town team, going 6-2 against them with an ERA of 2.28, while he had struck out 60 Padres. He will be going for his second straight win of the season, while trying to continue his dominace of the Padres, while hoping to give the Phils another pitching gem on this road trip, as he, and the team in general, waits for the offense to final start hitting.

He had so far handled the Phils, going 2-0 with a 0.73 ERA, as he struck out 16 Phils. Volquez is still looking for his first win of 2012, as he hope that he can take advantage of the Phils’ present batting troubles. The Phils’ offense will be trying to get back on track offensively, as they hope to add to their new team record for most consecutive wins in an opposing team’s home park.

The Phils won the first game of the three-game series with a four-hit, four-run outburst in the first inning against eventual loser Tim Lincecum, who had been awful in his first three starts of the young season, despite having struck out sixteen batters, before eventually winning the game, 5-2, behind their ace Roy Halladay, who, as he won his third start, first pitched himself out of a bases loaded jam with less than two outs in the bottom of the first inning, before eventually breezing along in his last four innings, before handing the ball off to Jonathan Papelbon,who recorded his third save of the year.

The Phils, who are coming off a 3-3 home stand, are coming off a win against the Mets, salvaging a win after having lost the first two game of the series as the offense, which had outhit the Mets but was unable to get any key hits earlier in the series, was finally able to strike late in yesterday’s game, scoring seven runs in the last two innings. The Giants, meanwhile, are coming off a lost against the Pirates, after having won the first two games in their weekend series, as they are involved in a six-game homestand, before they go on the road.

The Phils will be sending to the mound their ace Roy Halladay (2-0, 0.60), who is coming off a victory against the Marlins on April 11, as he pitched seven strong innings, giving up a run on five scattered hits and a walk, while he struck out three, in the Phils’ 7-1 win. Career-wise, Halladay does not have a good record against the Giants, as he is 0-2 against them with a 7.23 ERA, with 14 strikeouts. Halladay will be shooting for his third win of the young season, hoping that the offense will give him his first win against the Giants. The Giants will counter with their ace Tim Lincecum (0-1, 12.91), who is coming off a no-decision against the Rockies on April 11, as he went only two and one-thirds innings, the shortest outing so far of his career, giving up six runs on eight hits and two walks, while he struck out only three, in the Giants’ 17-8 lost.

The Phils will be out to even the series with the Mets after losing the opening game last night as the Mets got to their number two starter, Cliff Lee, in the first inning via three extra-bases hits, including a two-run home run by Jason Bay, before giving up a total of four runs to a team that he had been able to control in three previous starts. Meanwhile, the Phils would end up outhitting the Mets 11 hits to 6, but would only be able to score one run against Mets’ starter R.A. Dickey, a home run by Freddy Galvis, his first career home run, as they were not able to get the much needed key hit so that they could get back into the ballgame, as Dickey and his knuckleball found ways to frustrate several Phils’ rallies.

In the second game of the weekend series, the Phils will send to the mound their second-year starter Vance Worley (0-0, 1.50), who had received a no-decision in his opening start against the Pirates on April 8, as he went six innings, giving up just a run on five hits and a walk, while striking out five, in the Phils’ 5-4 ninth-inning lost.
