Phils Kick Off 10-Game Homestand with Hamels vs. the Padres

The Phillies kick off a 10-game homestand this evening against the San Diego Padres and do so in 80's style. Both teams will wear sweet 1984 throwback uniforms this evening as part of 80's Retro Night.

Cole Hamels (11-5, 2.71) will take on a Padres team coming off a three game sweep of the struggling Marlins. San Diego outscored Florida 23-6 in that series. They'll counter with left-hander Cory Luebke (3-3, 2.57) this evening so Charlie Manuel has gone with a right-heavy lineup.

Hamels is coming off one of his worst starts of the season against the Mets on July 16th, in which he lasted only 4.1 IP and allowed 7 earned runs. On the flip side, Hamels has a 17.0-inning scoreless streak going against the Padres dating back to June 7th of last season.

When the Phils last faced the Pads in a four game set, they got the brooms out back in April as the Fightins took all four from San Diego.

Manuel's lineup for this evening: Rollins, Martinez, Utley, Howard, Victorino, Ruiz, Francisco, Mayberry, and Hamels.

First pitch scheduled for 7:05.

White House communications director criticized for citing Joe Paterno quote about honor

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- President Donald Trump's new communications director is getting sacked on social media for quoting Joe Paterno while making a point about honor and dignity.

Anthony Scaramucci mentioned the late Penn State football coach's oft-cited line "act like you've been there before" during a CNN interview Thursday about his push to stop leaks to the press.

Penn State fired Paterno in 2011 over his handling of child sex abuse allegations against former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky. A university-commissioned investigation concluded Paterno and others hushed up the allegations for fear of bad publicity.

Paterno, one of college football's winningest coaches, died of lung cancer in January 2012 at 85. He was never charged with a crime.

When Paterno died, Scaramucci tweeted he'd met the coach twice and considered him an "honorable man."
