The Phillies will be your appetizer this afternoon prior to the Flyers and Devils getting their playoff series underway later in the day. RHP Matt Garza (1-1, 3.38) throws for the Cubs and will face RHP Kyle Kendrick (0-1, 9.39) for the Fightins.
Kendrick will look to try to get something positive going after a real rough outing in Arizona in which he was bashed around to the tune of 7 earned on 11 hits in only 3 innings of work. He had that awful first inning in which the D-Backs batted around. Hopefully this one’s not over by 2:00 p.m.
The Phils found some offense last night with Jimmy Rollins back at the top of the order. Charlie Manuel will keep him there again today with: 1. Rollins, 2. Pierre, 3. Pence, 4. Wigginton (3B), 5. Victorino, 6. Nix (1B), 7. Schneider, 8. Galvis, 9. Kendrick.
Carlos Ruiz took a nock to the head last night (but also bashed a home run). He’ll rest today.
1:35 first pitch. Busy day in the sports complex. Septa is your friend. Go team.
Positive from the Game Notes: “The Phillies lead all National League clubs this season with a .988 fielding percentage … Philadelphia has committed only 10 errors this season in 810 total chances which is the fewest for any NL club (T-4th fewest in MLB).” Gahl-vees.
