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.
