According to the Inky:

People want to watch Phillies lefthander Cole Hamels. His debut Friday night against the Cincinnati Reds on Comcast SportsNet drew a 7.7 rating, the highest rating for a Phillies game on the cable channel since July 4, 2001, for a game against the New York Yankees.

People are excited about the Phillies for the first time in a long while.  Winning makes it easy for fans to jump on the wagon.

Hamels takes the mound this afternoon against the Brew Crew to try to get the Phillies back on track after a two game skid.
