Game 12: Phillies Vs Giants

The Phillies play the final game of this three game series tonight in San Francisco at AT&T park against the Giants before they head to San Diego to face off against the Padres in a four game weekend series.

The Phillies look to take the series tonight and  put last nights painful game behind them, the Phillies had there opportunities to take the series last night and win the first two games of this ten game road trip but the Phillies could just not get those clutch hits they needed, by the end of the game the Phillies stranded 19 runners. The Phillies at one time last night had the bases loaded and no outs but could only come out of the inning with one run, those baserunners haunted the Phillies in a 4-2 lose.

Cliff Lee takes the hill tonight for the Phillies and he looks to get his first win of the season, Lee in his first two appearances of the year has an ERA of 3.46 and a record of 0-1. In his first start of the year in Pittsburgh against the Pirates he pitched pretty well but he could not get any offensive support, in his second start of the year at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia he got rocked in the first inning by the Mets and the Phillies could never recover.

Phillies offense will have to face Matt Cain tonight, Cain in his two appearances this year has an ERA of 3.00 and one win, he also has a lot of cash to. Cain signed a $127.5 million dollar extension with the Giants earlier this season. So lets hope the money ways him down and this Phillies offense can mustered up some clutch hits tonight in the bay area.

Shane Victorino has a 10 game hitting streak coming into tonight.

This game will be televised on TCN, 1210 WPHT for radio.

Gameday Preview: Phillies vs Giants

The Phillies begin there 10 game west coast road trip tonight at 10:15 Pm EST  agianst the San Francisco Giants at AT&T Park, this game is really late for my east coast friends so drink an energy drink or brew some coffee so you can stay up.

We have another fantastical pitching matchup tonight in the bay area, Roy Halladay will take on Tim Lincecum. Halladay has a perfect 2-0 record in his 2 starting appearances this year for the Phillies. Lincecum on the other hand is 0-1 in his two appearances this season for the Giants, is ERA is through the roof 12.91

The Giants and Phillies are very similar, they both try to beat you with pitching because there offense is not the greatest. So in this three game series you will probably see a lot of low scoring games but again anything can happen in baseball and any team on any night can just go out there and light it up. Hopefully the Phillies can light up the Bay Area tonight.

It is supposed to be a little chilly in San Francisco tonight as usual, 53 degrees at game time with a slight breeze and a zero percent chance of rain.

This game will be televised on TCN, 1210 WPHT for radio.
