Cole Hamels (10-10, 3.06) works to extend his 25-inning shutout streak when the Phillies and Marlins play the second in South Florida.
Preview: Lately, the effectiveness of Hamels' newly crafted cutter has become more and more apparent. Adding a third, late-breaking hard pitch has kept hitters from sitting dead-red fastball. And when they get a fastball, it's zipping in at 94 mph. As a result, Hamels has looked mighty dominant with no signs of slowing. It's been a good year for the cutter actually with the addition of Roy Halladay, Hamels and Jamie Moyer twirled a good one before he got hurt. ... Career minor-leaguer Adelberto Mendez (1-0, 0.00) can't possibly fool the Phillies twice. Mendez pitched a six-inning one-hitter against the Phillies on Sept. 6. ... The Phillies confirmed that Roy Oswalt will pitch Friday and Kyle Kendrick on Saturday, meaning that Hamels, Roy Halladay and Oswalt are lined up for the Atlanta series beginning Monday. ... Standard lineup tonight. Jimmy Rollins is still a little worse than day-to-day with no word on when he'll return to the lineup.
