A Note for Today:

Prospect lefty, Adam Morgan, will get the start for the Phillies today in place of Jerome Williams.  Morgan is 0-6 with a 4.74 ERA in Triple-A Lehigh Valley, but has been solid in his last 3 starts, posting a 2.51 ERA and giving up only 4 earned runs and including one shutout.

The Phillies offense will have it’s work cut out for them against a tough Michael Wacha, who has been struggling a bit in his last 3 starts, but still stands with a 2.48 ERA.

Cesar Hernandez will play for Chase Utley today, and Cameron Rupp gets the start behind the plate.  Ryan Howard remains the only long-term contract player on the field for the day.

First pitch at 1:35 EST.

Lineup:

Revere CF, Hernandez 2B, Franco 3B, Howard 1B, Brown RF, Asche LF, Rupp C, Galvis SS,  Morgan LHP
