Cliff Lee and the Phillies will look to get over .500 this evening as they welcome the New York Mets to town.
The Phillies bats finally got going a bit over their last two games and with Phife Dog on the hill tonight you have to like their chances.
The Mets will counter with knuckle-baller R.A. Dickey who is 1-0 on the season with a 3.00 ERA. Dickey has decent numbers against the Phils, putting up a 2-3 record with a 2.61 ERA in six starts. He’s owned Jimmy Rollins (1-14) while Carlos Ruiz has hit him hard (4-10).
Jim Thome gets the start at first base for the Fightins and is still searching for his first hit of the season.
Charlie’s full lineup: 1. Victorino, 2. Polanco, 3. Rollins, 4. Pence, 5. Thome, 6. Mayberry, 7. Chooch, 8. Galvis, 9. Lee
From the Gamte Notes: Cliff Lee has thrown exactly 7.0 innings in all 3 of his career starts against the Mets, while allowing 1 ER or none in each of those starts.
One other interesting note, courtesy of David Hale of Delaware Online: Jonathan Papelbon told him prior to today’s game that he intends to use a different entrance song for each game. Neat.
7:05 from the Bank. Let’s do some laughing at loud at the Mets expense, please.
