The Phillies are home for the weekend series against the Marlins. The Phils are home for a short 6 game stand with the Marlins and then the Brewers. Cliff Lee was masterful last night against the Nationals as the Phillies again took 2 out of 3 in a series. Lee struck out 12 in this one, and it was one of the finest displays of pitching we've seen so far in this early season.
Lee looked like he found his groove against the Nats and the made them pay in the awesome display of pitching against them. Ryan Howard is now day to day, thanks to a pitch from John Lannan that sailed right at Howard. Howard didn't react to the pitch and made no attempt to get away from it, and the pitch landed solidly on his wrist in Game 2 of the series with Washington.
It's Oswalt tonight for the Phils as he looks to be the first 3 game winner on the staff.
