The Phillies are in danger of being swept by the Atlanta Braves. They lost Monday and Tuesday putting fans in panic mode. Cole Hamels and Roy Halladay did not have the starts that were expected and not the pitchers we are used to seeing.
Tonight Cliff Lee takes the mound. He will be facing Kris Medlen. Lee’s spring training ERA was high as it was 4.79. His record was zero wins and one loss with six games started. Hopefully Lee can focus and give the Phillies a start they need and are looking for this early in the season.
Another key to the Phillies avoiding the sweep will be Chase Utley. In the first two games he has an average of .444. He contributed five RBI with one homerun. He is the key to the Phillies offense right now and hopefully it continues.
Hopefully tonight the Phillies can start to find their winning ways. It will be hard to see them be swept in the first series of the season. Tonight let’s hope the Brave fans can put the brooms away!
