A Note for Today:

Last night brought another win to Philly, although it was a close one, winning 4-3.  Darnell Sweeney hit his second home run of the year, but will be found on the bench tonight.

Today marks another MLB debut for the newest Phillies. Alec Asher will get his first start after coming to the Phillies in the Cole Hamels deal.  He picked up a 2.08 ERA for the Lehigh Valley team in 26.0 innings.

Aaron Altherr will get his third look in a row in the lineup, and in good measure, he has a hit in each game, which includes a triple and two doubles.

Phillies offense will face James Shields on the mound for the Padres, he gave up 8 hits and 5 earned runs in his last start against the Nationals Aug. 25th.

First pitch at 1:35 EST.


Herrera CF, Hernandez 3B, Altherr RF, Howard 1B, Blanco 3B, Asche LF, Rupp C, Galvis SS, Asher RHP
