Return of the King: Braves at Phillies Game Thread, May 8, 2009

New, 97 comments

After two games in Queens that can only be described as turdworthy, the Phillies return home to Philadelphia for a weekend series against the Atlanta Braves.


Cole Hamels is set to return to the mound for his first start after spraining his ankle last week against the Nationals. He will be opposed by Jo-Jo Reyes, owner of the worst name in baseball since the heyday of Rusty Kuntz.

The Phillies badly need a good, long start from Hamels. After getting your best pitching performance of the year in a loss from Chan Ho Park, things have to start looking up, right?

Cole Hamels.

You know.

Tonight in Philadelphia.

Discuss the game below.
