Play Ball: Worley v. Dickey As Phils Get Back to Title Hunt

Jul 15, 2011, 5:41 PM EDT

The Phillies kick off their second half this evening up the Jersey Turnpike and take on the Mets at CitiField.

The Phillies, a team hoping for nothing short of a World Series victory, will take on a team this evening that is banged up and has already started unloading tradable players. Could Carlos Beltran be next on the list of Mets players to depart?

Vance Worley (4-1, 2.20) will take on knucklehead R.A. Dickey (4-7, 3.61) this evening at Citifield as the Fightins’ resume play and look to continue their dominance over the NL East.

When last we saw the Phils, they were beating up on the Braves on Sunday to the tune of 14-1. The bats were red hot and Cole Hamels was filthy. Hopefully a couple of days relaxing, playing some wiffle ball, and stepping away from the field won’t force them to miss a beat.

First pitch from Flushing set for 7:10 pm this evening. Are you Phillies fans invading their ballpark this evening?
