In the Zone: Nationals at Phillies Game Thread, April 28, 2009

So what kind of frustrating, thrilling, joyful, stressful, thrombo-inducing game will we get tonight?

It's a battle of "aces" on a hot night in Philadelphia, as John "High and tight, boo!" Lannan takes on Cole Hamels. A wary Delaware Valley will be watching Hamels to make sure there are no ill-effects from that Prince Fielder rocket he took off his shoulder last Thursday. Hopefully Cole will finish what he began last week, a groove that saw his strike out six in three innings.

Chris Coste is starting. So is Pedro Feliz.

13 runs two games in row. Is that lucky, or unlucky?

Discuss the game below.
