The Phillies go for their fourth win in a row tonight against the Reds. They have a tough matchup, facing RHP Edison Volquez, who paces the Senior Circuit with a 1.46 ERA and 83 strikeouts. In their first matchup this season, on April 7, Volquez held the Phillies to 1 run over 5 1/3 innings, striking out 8.
Brett Myers will attempt to build off last week's 11 strikeout performance, and will need to avoid another big first inning tonight; Volquez isn't likely to cough up too many runs. In that same April 7 game, Myers gave up 8 hits and 4 runs over 5 innings.
Tornado Watch in the Philadelphia region. Let's hope they get this in.
