A Note for Tonight:
The Phillies came back to within 2 runs in last nights final game of the series against the Cincinnati Reds, losing 6-4 after Aaron Harang gave up 6 runs (5 earned) over 5.2 innings.
Jerome Williams gets the start opposite Tim Lincecum on the mound tonight, looking for his 4th win of the season. Jerome gave up 4 runs and 8 hits in his last outing of 5.0 innings on May 31st against Colorado. All of those runs came on home runs with men on base to Nolan Arenado and DJ LeMahieu.
The San Francisco Giants are first in the League for hits and lead in batting average, but are only 17th in RBI’s (the Phillies sit dead last in that column).
Freddy Galvis gets the day off as Cesar Hernandez stands in at short, and Ben Revere gets the start for a second day in a row in center field, leading off at the top of the order.
Phillies-Giants series begins tonight, first pitch at 7:05 EST.
