Philadelphia Phillies (0-0) at Texas Rangers (0-0)
PHI: Cliff Lee
TEX: Tanner Scheppers
A Note for Tonight:
It’s Opening Day for the Philadelphia Phillies. Hope springs eternal with the first day of the year. Everyone is a contender, on even ground. But the Phillies will have their work cut out for them in three games with the Rangers to open the season. The good news is they won’t see Yu Darvish. The bad news is that Rangers offense is still loaded, now featuring Prince Fielder and Shin Soo-Choo. As for the Phillies, they’ll have to break the bats open and keep pace with Texas from day one if they hope to leave Arlington with a series win.
Let the games begin.
CF Revere / SS Rollins 2B Utley / 1B Howard / RF Byrd / DH Brown / C Ruiz / 3B Asche / LF Gwynn Jr.
