Vance Worley and the Phillies
The Phillies have high hopes for Vance Worley. Last year at the age of 22, Vance got two starts with the Phillies club. He finished with a 1-1 record, and had 12 strikeouts and gave up 8 hits, he finished last year with a 1.38 ERA over those two starts.
Worley is facing a toughened up New York Mets tonight in the first of three games with the Mets. The series culminates with a Sunday night matchup that promises to be great, Chris Young vs. Cliff Lee.
The series between the Mets and the Phillies didn’t seem like it would take off this year, but in the last 10 days or so, the Mets have played like they want to be contenders.
