Milwaukee Brewers (62-73) at Philadelphia Phillies (78-58)
Randy Wolf (10-10, 4.76) vs. Kyle Kendrick (9-7, 4.72)
Time: 1:35 at Citizens Bank Park
TV: MY PHL 17
Weather: Sunny, 73
In Saturday’s 5-4 victory, Roy Halladay surrendered four homers, but the Phillies offense rallied, en route to their fifth straight win. The Phillies become a scary team in September, and they’re just a game back in the National League East.
Former Phillie Randy Wolf will take the mound for the Brew Crew, but don’t expect a Wolf Pack reunion. This is Wolf’s second appearance at Citizens Bank Park in an away jersey. Phillies fans know what Wolf brings to the table. Sometimes he can be on his “A” game; other times he can get rocked. That sounds very familiar to Wolf’s counterpart, Kyle Kendrick.
The offense is starting to pick it up, especially Chase Utley, Jayson Werth and Ryan Howard. Howard is always a scary hitter late in the season, thus taking the name Mr. September. Howard does not have good career numbers against Wolf, but the Phillies need Howard to continue to have his September push.
