The Phillies and Pirates play for the pride of the Commonwealth this afternoon in Pittsburgh in the rubber match of the season's inaugural three game series.
Vance Worley, whose impressive rookie campaign in 2011 surprised nearly everybody, gets the ball for the Phillies and will face off against James McDonald.
Of note: Jim Thome gets the start at first base, and Ty Wigginton will spell Placido Polanco at third. Juan Pierre leads off. I got nothin'.
