Today’s game was all set up to be a real pitcher’s duel.  Cliff Lee was expected to start alongside fellow All-Star Max Scherzer, however Lee was scratched due to neck soreness. As rumors circulate about his impending departure, he is listed as day-to-day. In his place today, Raul Valdes will get the start. The lefty was 3-4 with a 3.10 ERA over 12 starts for the IronPigs before being recalled Tuesday. That day, he allowed one run and two hits in 1 1/3 innings in relief against St. Louis. This will be his third career start.

Scherzer, meanwhile, was the AL started for the All-Star game and was tied for the Major League lead in wins as of Friday. This will be his first start against the Phillies.
