The Astros ended the Phillies winning streak last night.  The Phillies could not hold onto a four run lead.  The goal is to start a new winning streak.  The Phillies can’t afford to fall back under .500 again.

Philadelphia has a lot of confidence in Cole Hamels, who is looking for his 15th win, which would be a career high.  Since July 27, Hamels is 3-1 with a 2.26 ERA.  During that time frame, opponents are hitting just .229 with a .571 OPS against him.

Edgar Gonzalez was just recently promoted from Triple-A, and has succeed so far.  Last night, the Phillies left a lot of men on base; tonight, the Phillies need to capitalize and drive in runners.
