A Note for Today:

The Phillies have put back-to-back wins together for the first time since June, and look to sweep Miami in the third of the series with Cole Hamels on the mound.

With trade rumors swirling, and what could always be Cole’s last start as a Phillie, Hamels will look to right the ship against a team without their biggest bat and base threats.  In Cole’s last start he allowed 12 hits and 9 runs, his worst start in his entire career some would argue.  Not that he isn’t the shiny trade piece he was at the beginning of the season, but I, myself, wouldn’t want to leave the Phillies with that sour taste in my mouth.  So without Giancarlo Stanton, and Dee Gordon, the Miami Marlins are faced with brooms against a team at the bottom of the pits and Cole will be coming at them mad.

In other notes, that no one cares about, Jonathan Papelbon has closed his 15th save in as many chances.

Odubel Herrera gets the start in center, his first since San Francisco, July 11th.
