Philadelphia Phillies (54-68) at San Francisco Giants (63-58)
A Note for Today:
Here are some pitcher-batter splits for today.
Chase Utley is 5-for-his-last-8 with a home run against Giants starter Tim Hudson. As we know Ryan Howard is a Hudson-killer. He has faced the righty more than anyone else in his career (80 PAs) and sports a .328 average and 1.112 OPS against him. Hudson is responsible for 7 of Howard’s 329 career homers, only Chris Volstad has allowed more (8).
Lineup: Revere CF / Rollins SS / Utley 2B / Howard 1B / Byrd RF / Brown LF / Nieves C / Asche 3B / Kendrick P
