The Phils look to make it four-in-a-row tonight as they match up with the Cleveland Indians. The Phils will send out Roy Halladay (1.71 ERA in his last three starts) against 25-year old Zack McAllister. Both teams come into the game hitting the ball well: the Phillies scored 18 in three games against the Mets while the Indians put up 21 total in four against the Indians.
The biggest storyline today, however, may be Delmon Young‘s 2013 Phillies debut. Young will start tonight at DH and hit fifth behind Ryan Howard.
The current Indians line-up has not seen much of Doc but the folks in the Tribe that have have had much success: Jason Giambi is 22/72 (.306/.375/.486) lifetime against Halladay, making up most of the .282/.354/.453 line-against. Only two Phillies have ever faced McAllister: Michael Young and Ben Revere combine for a .556/.600/.556 line against the righty.
Lineup: Rollins SS, M. Young 3B, Utley 2B, Howard 1B, D. Young DH, Brown LF, Ruiz C, Mayberry RF, Revere CF
