BAL: Ubaldo Jimenez, RHP (4-3, 3.19)
A Note for Today:
After the slugfest the Phillies endured in Baltimore last night, it might be nice to get back home to Citizens Bank Park where the Phillies have had a little bit more success. With a win tonight, the Phillies would be 16-16 at home, as opposed to the 7-28 record for away games. The Phillies have just come off an 0-8 road trip, the first winless road trip of that caliber since 1883, when the Phillies were in their first season and went 0-9.
Kevin Correia will face most of the same batters that hit 8 home runs last night against the Phillies pitching arsenal, which included Jeff Francouer, who gave up one in the late innings. Dustin McGowan came into the 1st inning to relieve an injured Jerome Williams, and gave up 5 HRs over 3.1 innings.
Chase Utley goes back to second base tonight, and Ryan Howard gets back in at first.
Phillies bring it back to CBP, first pitch at 7:05 EST.
Revere CF, Utley 2B, Franco 3B, Howard 1B, Brown RF, Rupp C, Asche LF, Galvis SS, Correia RHP
