The Phillies will look to win their third straight game and second straight against the Rockies on Saturday, after a dramatic come-from behind 8-7 win on Friday night.

Right-hander Jonathan Pettibone will be on the hill for the Phillies. He struggled a bit against Milwaukee his last time out, going 5 1/3 innings while allowing six runs on four hits. Pettibone has pitched pretty well for the Phillies overall, however, and in ten starts he has allowed three runs or less in eighth of them. He will be facing Tyler Chatwood, who has allowed just four runs over his last five starts with Colorado.

Despite the Rockies missing start shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, Pettibone will still have some tough customers in the Todd Helton and the red-hot Carlos Gonzalez. Gonzalez was 4-for-4 in last night’s game with a home run, and reached base five times.

For the Phillies, Freddy Galvis is coming off a huge game in which he had two-run triples in back-to-back innings, and finished the night with four RBIs. He is back in the lineup again tonight, hitting seventh. Rollins is also back in the lineup after missing a game with a sore foot and hip. Here is the full lineup:

Lineup: Revere CF, M. Young 3B, Rollins SS, Howard 1B, Brown LF, Mayberry RF, Galvis 2B, Quintero C, Pettibone P

With summer right around the corner, it’s time to make the switch into a true summer brew, and Shocktop Belgian White is a perfect summer beer. This wheat ale is brewed with lemon, lime and orange peels to give it a refreshing taste and subtly sour finish. It’s the perfect beer for relaxing and watching the ballgame on the weekend.

    Pettibone looked so good when they first brought him up. What happened to him? Of course, the fielding isn’t helping.

    Schmeck, how many times has Young been throw out at the plate this year? It seems to me I’ve seen it at least 4 or 5 times.

      Young was thrown out in the Sunday game in Milwaukee on a Ryan Howard single in the first inning.

      Young was thrown out on Thursday night’s game against Minnesota on a Ryan Howard single.

      Young was thrown out in today’s game on a Ryan Howard double. So its 3 times just in a week.

      I think Sandberg has to be less aggressive about sending him. Maybe Frandsen should be playing 3rd base some to get some more offense too.

        Thanks David!! 3x in a week, Jesus!! I know there were other times earlier in season. Wonder if they keep that stat and if so what’s the record for one guy being thrown out at plate in a year.
