Hamels On Hill Vs. Pirates

For full gameday, visit Phillies Nation.

The Pittsburgh Pirates (38-48) are at the Philadelphia Phillies (46-38).

Ross Ohlendorf (7-7, 4.63 ERA) pitches vs. Cole Hamels (5-5, 4.70 ERA)

The Phillies turned it around during this homestand, winning seven of eight. Tonight, Cole Hamels and Ross Ohlendorf matchup. Both have been inconsistent his season.

Hamels hopes he can get half of the run support he received in his last start; 22 runs. That game he kept his pitch count low with 92 in seven innings. He did not walk a batter and gave up one run on three hits. Back-to-back great outings is important for Hamels. He faced the Pirates once in his career – in five innings, he allowed three runs.

Ohlendorf has also been inconsistent. He has fared well at times, only to follow it up with a subpar performance. He allowed five runs in his last start, which followed a seven inning shutout and a career high eight strikeouts. If the pattern continues, Ohlendorf should be good tonight. The Phillies don’t want that.

Wonderful post! These are some good tips, but there’s better ones out there. I would definitely research it, Keno is by far the best game ever.
