Cole Hamels (10-3, 3.25) is handed the afternoon assignment as the Phillies host David Price (9-4, 3.08) and the Rays in the first of two from Citizens Bank Park. First pitch is 1:05.
Beerleaguer: Jim Thome sent an energized crowd home happy with a walk-off, opposite-field home run in the bottom of the ninth in giving the Phillies a 7-6 victory Saturday. That came moments after Jonathan Papelbon was given the business for squandering a 6-4 lead in the top of the inning, his first blown save in 18 chances. Tough crowd; Papelbon has been the Phils' most consistent pitcher this season. Nevertheless, terrific moment for Thome, who tied Sammy Sosa with his 609th career homer, good for seventh on the all-time list. It was also his 13th career walk-off home run, which is most in baseball history.
Rosenberg recalled: According to the IronPigs' Twitter, right-hander BJ Rosenberg was recalled from Triple-A and becomes the Phillies' 26th man. Of course, the Phils would rather see him seated on a bullpen folding chair and get another big start from Hamels, who threw eight innings in a win over the Rockies his last start. Rosenberg appeared in a pair of games earlier in the month. The Orioles walked off on him June 9.
Lineup: The Phils stack the right-handers while giving Placido Polanco and Juan Pierre the afternoon off. It's Rollins, Victorino, Pence, Ruiz, Wigginton, Mayberry, Luna, Martinez, Hamels against the left-hander Price.
