The Phillies take on the Brewers today in the final game of a four-game series. Having fallen in the first three games here in Philadelphia, the Phils send newly-activated starter Chad Billingsley to the hill to try to evade a sweep at the hands of the Milwaukee Brewers, one of the worst teams in baseball. The first pitch comes at the unusual hour of 6:35 from Citizens Bank Park as the Phillies end their homestand tonight.
Starting Pitching Matchup:
|Philadelphia Phillies (27-53)||Milwaukee Brewers (32-48)|
|RHP||Chad Billingsley||RHP||Matt Garza|
|(0-2, 6.75 ERA)||(4-10, 5.52 ERA)|
In three games with the Phillies, Chad Billingsley, signed as a free agent after missing the 2014 season, has racked up an 0-2 record with an ERA of 6.75. Last starting on May 15, he was activated from the 15-day DL today as the Phils sent Aaron Harang to the DL with plantar fasciitis. Matt Garza of the Brewers lost his previous start against the Twins, allowing five hits and four runs in six innings.
