The Phillies must be happy to return home after finishing their road trip with a sub-par 4-5 record. Despite a losing road trip, they return to Citizens Bank Park atop the NL East. They’ll kick off their home stand this evening against the Los Angeles Dodgers as Cliff Lee (4-5, 3.94) takes on Ted Lilly (4-4, 4.22).
A few minor transactions for the Phils: Jimmy Rollins tweets that his X-rays were negative and that he anticipated returning in a couple of days. Ross Gload is back from paternity leave as John Mayberry Jr. has been optioned to Lehigh Valley.
Dom Brown will get a start this evening against a left-hander, with Raul getting a blow. Charlie Manuel, who has said Dom won’t see much action against lefties, mentioned Raul needed a rest and liked how Brown matched up with Lilly.
First pitch scheduled for 7:05. Our apologies for the slow day. We are having all sorts of tech issues today. Hopefully we’ll be able to fix them as soon as possible. Go Cliff, go.
