Coming off a lopsided 7-0 win for the Phils where Cliff Lee, Kyle Kendrick, and roster dark-horse Jake Diekman looked great and Tuffy Gosewisch (!) stole a base, the Phils head back home to play Hunter Pence’s old squad, the Houston Astros. The Phils go for three straight wins in today’s match-up. The Vanimal will get the ball to start and Papelbon, Willis, and Qualls all look to build on their last outings.

Of note: Utley has another routine day off, Mayberry has another day at first, Kratz has his first start behind the plate, and Nix is playing the field for the first time this Spring.
