The Phillies begin a three game series against the Boston Red Sox tonight at 7:05 Pm EST. this also begins a six game home stand for the Phillies.
The Phillies look to keep this five game winning streak rolling smoothly along tonight at Citizens Ban Park in South Philadelphia, this is the longest winning streak of the season and the Phillies for the first time since opening day in Pittsburgh find themselves one game over the .500 mark, only four games out of first place.
This will be the interesting home stand because the Phillies are playing some pretty good ball clubs, plus the Washington Nationals come to town and you know there is going to be some juice in Citizens Bank Park for all three games. This will also be a very good home stand to really judge this Phillies team because the teams they will be facing are pretty tough, this past week the Phillies played the bottom of the barrel major league teams and won which is what you have to do when you face a lesser opponent.
Here is the pitching matchups for this interleague series.

Cole Hamels (5-1, 2.28) vs Daniel Bard (3-4, 4.30)
Saturday 4:05 Pm EST Start
