Shortened Set: Hamels vs. Sanchez

Philly disappears in the rain

The Phillies and Marlins got an unscheduled off-day on Saturday as the Philadelphia area was hit with some of the nastiest rain we’ve seen in quite some time. The Phils streak of dropping the first game of a series only to win the final two will not continue, but they will be able to at least split the shortened set with a win against the Fish on this sunny Sunday afternoon.

Yesterday’s rain shouldn’t change the rotation ordering, instead each pitcher will be pushed back one day with Cole Hamels (1-1, 5.59) taking the hill this afternoon against Anibal Sanchez (1-1, 0-1, 6.97).

Sunday Bests

My favorite nugget from today’s press notes: since moving to Citizens Bank Park in 2004, the Phillies are 71-26 on Sunday’s at home.

1:35 start time from South Philly. Don’t forget to wish the Phanatic a happy birthday if you see him at the bar later this evening.
