Philadelphia Phillies (47-61) at Washington Nationals (58-47)
WAS: Gio Gonzalez (6-6, 3.56)
PHI: Cliff Lee (4-5, 3.78)
A Note for Today: The Phillies stood pat at the trade deadline, but that doesn’t mean moves won’t be made into August. Every game is a showcase for players such as Antonio Bastardo, Marlon Byrd, and tonight’s starter Cliff Lee, who could end up on waivers.
Tonight, the Phillies will send Lee to the mound, who hasn’t been quite the same since his return from the disabled list. It’s only a matter of time before Lee gets his command back. Lee will be opposed by Gio Gonzalez, who has a 2.48 career ERA against the Phillies.
Lineup: Revere CF /Rollins SS / Utley 2B / Byrd RF / Ruiz C/ Sizemore LF/ Ruf 1B/ Blanco 3B / Nieves C / Blanco SS / Lee P
