It’s probably going to be a wet night down at Citizens Bank Park. They’re going to try and get the game in, but don’t be surprised if there’s a couple of stoppages and restarts. With the Astros only in town for a quick 2-game series and tomorrow’s game being a Business Person Special, they’ll likely try to wait this one out for a while.
Joe Blanton (3-3, 3.24) will face right-hander Lucas Harrell (2-2, 4.58). We can’t remember the last time Blanton lost at Citizens Bank Park it was so long ago. The Phillies are 14-4 in his last 18 starts at home with Blanton winning 7 of those games and losing zero.
Charlie’s going with yet another new lineup. Polly is one hit away from 2,000 for his career.
Lineup vs Astros: Rollins SS, Pierre LF, Victorino CF, Pence RF, Ruiz C, Polanco 3B, Mayberry 1B, Galvis 2B, Blanton P

7:05 is the scheduled start time from CBP but don’t be shocked if weather alters that a bit.
