Those looking forward to Hamels/Lincecum II: Timtastic Colealoo might be disappointed by the actual matchup, but the Phillies hitters probably are okay with avoiding LIncecum's electric stuff just a day after getting shut down by Arizona ace Brandon Webb. They managed to chase Patrick Misch a week ago tonight after four innings, scoring four times off five hits and two walks in an eventual 6-5 win. The 26 year-old Giants righty is looking for his first major-league win; he has no decisions in two starts this season and is 0-4 for his career.
The Phils should get a boost from the long-awaited return of Jimmy Rollins, who will be leading off and playing shortstop after his activation from the disabled list earlier today.
