After yesterday’s washout, Joe Blanton and the boys look to build on three-straight wins tonight against Shairon Martis and the winless Nationals. First pitch is 7:05.
Summary: Torched for nine hits and seven runs his first start, Blanton was spared the loss in a 12-11 comeback over Atlanta, meaning Blanton has yet to take a loss in a Phillies uniform. Tonight’s opponent, the 22-year-old right-hander Martis, didn’t fare much better in his first start. Only a handful of Phillies have ever faced him, including rookie Lou Marson, who will get his first start of the season tonight. [Jump to the newest comments]
