Fourty-four-year-old left-hander Randy Johnson (5-7, 5.18) faces right-hander Adam Eaton (3-7, 5.20) in the second of three from Citizens Bank Park. Eric Bruntlett starts in place of Chase Utley at second.
Preview: One of the surprises of the Phillies' season is that Eaton has taken every turn from opening day to the All-Star break. He ran off a nice, consistent stretch of starts, but lately he’s become a little unglued, including his last start, a 2 2-3 inning, 6-earned-run implosion to the Mets. It’s worth keeping a close watch on his situation as he looks to rebound against the offense-challenged D-Backs.
Although he isn’t what he used to be, the Phillies will have their work cut out for them against Randy Johnson, owner of a 10-3 record and 2.61 lifetime ERA against them. The Big Unit is seeking career win No. 290 tonight in his continued quest for 300.
