The Phillies will begin a four game series tonight in Arizona as they take on the Diamonbacks. We will see the debut of Tyler Cloyd, along with Cole Hamels, Cliff Lee, and Kyle Kendrick pitching for the Phillies. Tonight, Hamels takes the mound, and he’s struggled this year. His ERA is above four, he’s sporting his lowest career K/BB ratio (2.35), and highest career HR/9 (1.38). However, his last five starts have been very solid. Over those five outings, he has an ERA of 2.31, and opposing batters are hitting just .171 against him. In his last start, he gave up just two runs over eight innings against the Marlins.

For the D-Backs, Patrick Corbin gets the call, and his stats this year look like they should be next to Hamels’ name rather than his. He’s 4-0 with a 1.80 ERA, and leaves more men on base than all but one other qualified NL starters. However, he was very pedestrian last year as a rookie, so I’d expect his numbers to regress. Still, he is coming off a start against the Padres where he threw seven innings while giving up just one run.

The Phillies have won six of their last eight against the D-Backs and Hamels has a 4-1 record with 3.38 ERA in Arizona.

Lineup: Rollins SS, Utley 2B, M. Young 3B, Howard 1B, Delmon RF, Brown LF, Ruiz C, Revere CF, Hamels P

Philadelphia Original LagerBrewed by Red Bell Brewery out of the Brewerytown neighborhood of Philadelphia, this beer is a classic microbrew lager. It’s a bit heavier than Yuengling, with more of a roasted malt flavor and some sweet coffee and caramel hints. Its supreme drinkability coupled with a pour that looks like iced tea means you can sneakily house several of these bad boys. Have your favorite pasta with some marinara sauce and a few Philly Lagers. – By Brian

    Howard back in lineup versus leftie starter. He sure looked good on the breaking ball for a K didn’t he. When is Cholly going to sit him automatically versus leftie starters. It has worked well when he’s done it.

    Awesome heads-up play by Mike Young. Sometimes its the little things. D-Backs were in a great position to score.

    What a surprise, another K for Howard vs a leftie starter, oh they walked M Young to get to him with tying run on second. Come the F__ on, stop this madness. Keep him on bench vs lefties!!!!!!

    When they intentionally walk your 3 hitter to get to your clean up hitter and you know he has no shot its very disappointing.

    Once again, no run support for Cole. If I was him I would probably want out at the deadline. It is [expletive that rhymes with ducking] sickening already.

    Will the Phillies even get to .500 at any point this season? This win a couple, lose a couple pace won’t cut it. 0 for 14 from 1 through 4 in the lineup won’t cut it either. Just when the Phillies take a series from the world champs and have you feeling okay, they cancel it out immediately. I guess there is still the rest of the series. Need Cliff and KK to be pristine.
