Another bad loss for the Phils against Houston â€” Brett Myers was ineffective and the offense couldn’t do any more than what Ryan Howard gave them. The offense hasn’t quite worked for two straight games. Is today the day they turn it around for two straight?
Cole Hamels goes for the Phils. Hamels has thrown 19 consecutive scoreless innings. The Astros will throw Chris Sampson out there. Righties are hitting an astounding .350 off him. The barometer will hit 90 degrees in Houston at gametime. Hamels has a 3.46 ERA in his two daytime starts this season.
Phillies: Cole Hamels (5-3) 2.61 ERA
Astros: Brian Moehler (2-3) 5.91 ERA
Gametime: 2:05 p.m. EST
Weather: 90 degrees, mostly sunny
Lineup: Rollins, Victorino, Utley, Howard, Burrell, Jenkins, Feliz, Ruiz, Hamels

Your gameday beer: On this warm Memorial Day weekend, good beer is a must. I’ve always like Hoeegarden, which can be enjoyed in small sips with good food. It flows smooth and tastes like citrus. Have some barbecue chicken with it.
