Jonathan Pettibone (3-0, 3.00) vs. Dan Haren (4-5, 5.54)

TIME: 7:15, Nationals Park
Weather: 50′s, partly cloudy
Media: Twitter and Facebook

The season of ups and downs continues.  The Phillies have been playing their best baseball of the year as of late, but they dropped last night’s game to the Washington Nationals.  The Phillies have yet to build a significant winning streak, but it would be great to start one this Memorial Day weekend.

Jonathan Pettibone will attempt to put the Phillies back into the win column.  Since being called up, Pettibone has done better than the Phillies could have asked.  He’s been consistent and has yet to toss a bad outing.  In each of his six starts, Pettibone has had a quality start or better.  He will look to continue his success tonight in D.C.

Dan Haren has a pretty good resume, but he has struggled thus far this season.  He has yet to earn the $13 million that he will make in 2013, as his ERA is well over five.  He is coming off his worst start of the season, in which  he allowed seven runs to the always weak-hitting San Diego Padres.

    Time to move Dom up in the order maybe? Little more time?

      He’s now the 2nd best hitter on the team so far this year, and the best one is on the DL. I can certainly see the 2 or 3 spot.

    Wow, Durbin came into a game and didn’t allow anyone to score? What?

    I used to love this site and so did many others. Ever since the changes with all the adds and border the site response sucks,. Did you switch your host? There are a ton of people who would host this for almost nothing.

      I kinda’ dig the picture of Norm McDonald in his Safe Auto tee-shirt on the side bar. PS Is it possible that Howard is seriously hurt?
