Philadelphia Phillies (37-51) vs. Colorado Rockies (34-52)
Vance Worley (4-5, 3.54) vs. Jeremy Guthrie (3-8, 6.05)
Time: 8:10, Coors Field
Media: Twitter and Facebook
Vance Worley will try to get the Phillies their first win after the All Star break when he takes the mound tonight in Colorado. Though Worley has excellent career numbers against the Rockies (2.25 ERA), he’s never pitched at the notoriously pitcher-unfriendly Coors Field, which has a tendency to chew up young pitchers and spit them out. Can Vanimal handle the challenge of pitching in the thin air of the Rocky Mountains? We’ll find out tonight.
On the mound for the Rockies will be career-underachiever Jeremy Guthrie. Though Guthrie has never really lived up to his potential as a pitcher, he has had a field day in the ten innings he’s pitched against the Phillies, as his career 0.90 ERA when facing them indicates.
Lineup: Rollins SS, Victorino CF, Utley 2B, Howard 1B, Ruiz C, Pence RF, Pierre LF, Font...
BEST OF MAXIM
Jeremy Guthrie won't be around long.Jeremy Guthrie made his first start for the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field since being demoted, then coming back to the starting rotation on Saturday night.Despite working out of the bullpen at home since his last start on June 12th, the results were the same for the biggest offseason disappointment in recent years for the Rockies. The Rockies...
Phillies outfielder Juan Pierre has never been a power hitter in his career. With just 17 career home runs in his 13-year career, Pierre has always been noted as a singles hitter and speed demon on the base paths. Pierre played at the height of his career during the steroid era of baseball. In an interview with the Philadelphia Inquirer, Pierre talked about how he has played the...
Vance Worley pitched into the seventh inning and hit a two-run double, Carlos Ruiz added a three-run homer, and the Philadelphia Phillies hung on to beat the Colorado Rockies 8-5 Saturday night to snap a five-game losing streak.
Worley (5-5) allowed two runs on eight hits in 6 2-3 innings. He struck out two and walked two, worked out of a bases-loaded jam in the fifth and benefited...
Well, at least it wasn't someone TOO important. The latest 2012 Phillies casualty to the disabled list is left-handed reliever Raul Valdes. Valdes has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right hip strain, and left-handed reliever Joe Savery has been recalled from AAA Lehigh Valley to take his place.
Valdes has been moderately effective, going 2-2 with a 3.80...

Pitching deep into almost every game, Cole Hamels of the Philadelphia Phillies is among the best. How does Miami compare after their ace has worked? The Apocalyptic Horsemen Stats are in my daily coverage.

Well, the Phillies are still in last place, but Cole Hamels, with scouts in the stands, was the real deal on Sunday in a 5-1 win over the Colorado Rockies.
It was their first series win in a month.
Hamels (11-4) went eight innings, giving up six hits, one run, one walk and seven strikeouts.
With a tentative 2-0 lead in the fourth, Hunter Pence hit a three-run bomb...
Reading Phillies (AA) CF Jiwan James robbed Bowie Baysox' 2B Jonathan Schoop of a hit last night when he climbed the wall, lost his glove, and appeared to catch the fly with his bare hand.

I know this is a week old, but I used the All-Star Break to, well, take a break. I think with a 37-50 first half, we all needed a break.
Anyway, before the unsettling finish to the Phillies' 5-0 loss to the Braves last Friday, Ryan Howard made a triumphant return.
I was standing behind section 130 and was able to get this picture (above), which...
DENVER - Phillies left-hander Cole Hamels is facing an uncertain future. His struggling team might trade him by the July 31 deadline. Or by then, they might re-sign Hamels to a lucrative contract to keep him from becoming a free agent. Then again, Hamels might leave as a free agent after the season, once he sizes up his market. With business matters swirling about him, Hamels...
On Friday, two players that could potentially provide some help to the big league Phillies roster this season were in action with the organization’s Gulf Coast League club, rehabbing their injuries. Right-handed reliever Justin De Fratus (elbow strain) and outfielder Domonic Brown (knee sprain) both looked good in their efforts down Florida.
De Fratus, who threw a scoreless...
The Phillies are starting the second-half of their season on the field Friday night in Colorado. They may also be starting - or ending - a major chapter in their history off the field with an offer to Cole Hamels.
In the past couple of weeks there has been a lot of rumors surrounding left handed pitcher Cole Hamels. It's been said that the Phillies, in case they become sellers, could deal him as long as they can't sign him to a long-term deal.
Yesterday, Jayson Stark of ESPN.com said that the Phillies are preparing a “substantial offer” to Hamels to see if they can sign him in...
