It’s the first of two on-deck games against that team the Phillies defeated in the World Series: Phillies vs. Rays tonight. Game time is 7:05 from Citizens Bank Park.
Joe Blanton pitches for the Phillies; he’ll face Scott Kazmir. Blanton defeated the Rays in game four of the ALCS, hitting a home run off Edwin Jackson. Kazmir lost game one against the Phils at Tropicana Field.
It’ll be the first time the Phils take Citizens Bank Park’s field since Oct. 29, 2008. Expect some rowdiness.
