A Note for Tonight:
The three game series between the Phillies and the Astros could easily be the battle of the awfully bad teams. Both teams have terrible records, and both are likely looking at top five picks in next June’s MLB Draft. Luckily for the Phillies Astros rookie sensation George Springer will be out the entire series as he is rehabbing a quad injury. The Phillies will however say hello to a few farm hands they traded away in the Hunter Pence trade. Jonathan Singleton will be at first base for the Astros. And the player to be named later in the Pence trade, Domingo Santana, just got called up from AAA Oklahoma.
Lineup: Revere CF / Rollins SS / Utley 2B / Howard 1B / Byrd RF / Ruiz C / Ruf LF / Asche 3B / Kendrick P
