Saturday was ugly down at Citizens Bank Park.
Even the typically quiet-tweeting Jim Salisbury felt the need to point out what a savage pummeling the Phillies were receiving.
But today is Sunday and a win in the rubber match eases the pain of yesterday.
This has turned into a savage pummeling

The Phils will have their hands full with Homer Bailey (2-3, 3.51) who perplexed their bats back in April. The Fightins managed just two hits off of Bailey and struck out 10 times over eight innings but still managed to eek out a 1-0 victory. He’s been solid for most of the season but that was by far his best outing of the year and tied his career-high in strikeouts. The Phillies are good for stuff like that these days it seems.
The home squad will counter with Jonathan Pettibone (3-0, 3.41) who has pitched surprisingly well thus far for the big league club.
1:35 start time from the Bank. Could be a bit dreary. Not exactly hitting weather today. Hopefully we get to see Jonathan Broxton at some point.
Here’s Charlie’s left-heavy lineup. Remember Ben Revere? He’s playing today.
