Phillies Turn to Blanton For Afternoon Affair in San Diego

Aug 28, 2010, 3:54 PM EDT

The Phillies will try to follow up last night's extra inning excitement with another victory today as they face the Padres in a Saturday afternoon tilt at Petco Park. Joe Blanton (5-6, 5.32) takes on Jon Garland (13-8, 3.25). Blanton is coming off of his best start of the season in which he went seven strong innings but failed to get the decision against Brett Myers and the Astros earlier in the week.

The Fightins made up a game on the Braves yesterday to move to within two of the division leaders coming into today's action. Enjoy your Wheels and T-Mac free day as the Phillies will take on the Padres today on Fox. Firt pitch is scheduled for 4:10.
