Tuesday, 7:05- Tyson Brummett vs. Gio "Was Phillies Property" Gonzalez
Wednesday, 1:05- UnluckLee vs. Not Stephen Strasburg
*The Phillies to win 2 games to secure a 10th consecutive winning season.
*The fierce battle for team lead in RBI (J-Roll and Chooch tied with 68 apiece).
*Juan Pierre speeding towards 40 stolen bases (currently with 37).
*Chase Utley to hit career homerun #200 (sitting on 199).
*Tyson Brummett's MLB debut, taking the place of Tyler Cloyd (forearm tightness). Brummett has bounced in and out of the rotation over his 6 minor league seasons and owns a 4.52 ERA/1.37 WHIP over 640.2 IP with a 26-47 record. Needless to say, nothing to get your hopes up about here.
*A Beltway showdown for the 2012 The Howard title between Washington's Ian Desmond and Ryan Zimmerman and Baltimore's Mark Reynolds and Matt Wieters (tied with 3 apiece).
