This is a rematch of Game #1 which was won by the Phillies as Cliff Lee pitched a complete game against the Rockies. The Rockies were said to have problems against lefty pitchers this season but they have smashed every lefty not named Lee of the Phillies. Cole Hamels, J.A. Happ and Scott Eyre are a combined 0-1 with a 7.71 ERA and a 1.82 WHIP in this series. It will be interesting to see if this hot hitting carries over today against the Phillies and Lee. Ubaldo Jimenez will be starting this game for the Rockies who will probably have a quick hook with him if he gets into trouble in this game. He was the losing pitcher in game #1 working the first five innings and allowing 9 hits and 5 earned runs. The Rockies need this game or they won’t play again until March in Arizona.
