PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES (53-68) @ SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS (63-57)
Game 1: Friday, August 15th @ 7:15 PM
Cole Hamels..........Madison Bumgarner
Code:Hamels Bumgarner 21 Starts 25 6 Wins 13 6 Losses 9 2.37 ERA 3.22 1.11 WHIP 1.16 144.1 IP 162.0 144 K's 158 43 BB's 37
Phillies: Hamels allowed five hits, one run, three walks and struck out five Saturday against the Mets. Hamels is having a fantastic season, but a lack of run support has him stuck on six wins. He has been better than that.
Giants: Bumgarner twirled his third complete game of the season in his last outing, but it wasn't enough as the Royals triumphed, 4-2. He allowed four runs (three earned) in eight innings and struck out five.
Game 2: Saturday, August 16th @ 1:05 PM
Kyle Kendrick......Tim Hudson
Code:Kendrick Hudson 24 Starts 23 5 Wins 8 11 Losses 9 4.88 ERA 2.81 1.37 WHIP 1.13 149.1 IP 150.1 90 K's 92 42 BB's 24
Phillies: Poor defense hurt Kendrick early in his last start Sunday against the Mets, but he struggled late as he allowed 10 hits, six runs (five earned), three walks, two home runs and struck out two in five innings.
Giants: Hudson was cruising last Saturday vs. the Royals until the seventh inning. He'd allowed just three hits and a run entering that frame, but Kansas City tacked on three hits and two runs off Hudson before he could record an out. The Giants lost, 5-0.
Game 3: Sunday, August 17th @ 1:05 PM
David Buchanan..........Tim Lincecum
Code:Buchanan Lincecum 12 Starts 24 6 Wins 9 6 Losses 8 4.40 ERA 4.51 1.26 WHIP 1.34 71.2 IP 137.2 49 K's 126 18 BB's 54
Phillies: Buchanan fared well in his second career start against the Mets on Monday, going six innings and allowing three runs on four hits for his eighth big league quality start. Buchanan is 4-3 with a 3.35 ERA over his last seven outings in the Majors.
Giants: Lincecum might welcome returning to AT&T Park, where he hasn't pitched since July 30. He's 6-3 with a 3.51 ERA at home, compared with 3-5, 5.98 on the road.
