Game 35 Open Thread: Pirates at Phillies

New, 235 comments

It's time for round three of Pirates-Phillies, this time with Cole Hamels!

John Geliebter-USA TODAY Sports

I know, I know; we're all waiting for Aaron Harang's start tomorrow night to get excited. It's been tough, sure - the Phillies have lost their last four games and seven of their last ten. But that's pretty much what we expected, and we're just one more encouraging Aaron Harang start away from feeling great again!

Tonight, though, it's just old Cole Hamels, out to prove how intensely he's de-aced himself. He'll face Francisco Liriano, as will the Phillies lineup, who has faced the Phillies only one time in his career, when he threw eight innings of shut-out ball, striking out 12 and allowing only four hits and two walks.

Go get 'im, Phils!
