The struggling Phils turn to right-hander Kyle Lohse (7-12, 4.61 ERA) for some much-needed pitching help when they host the Padres in the second of three at Citizens Bank Park. First pitch is 7:05 ET.
Preview: Clay Hensley (2-3, 6.70 ERA) makes his first start since being recalled from the minor leagues. Hoping to gain ground in the playoff race, the Phillies have instead dropped three of four. Jamie Moyer was the latest to be roughed up, looking as though the league has caught up with him. With the embarrassing 14-3 loss, the Phillies fell six back of the Mets and three back of the Padres. It hasn't been the homestand fans had hoped for, to say the least, ruined by an overexposed bullpen, slumping hitters and better efforts from the opposition.
