Game Info: 7:10 on FOX and 1210 AM
Starting Pitchers: Matsuzaka (2-1, 7.89) vs. Kendrick (2-1, 5.24)
In a special primetime FOX broadcast, the Phillies and Red Sox continue their three game series in a game which should feature a lot of offense. The Phillies won game one behind a strong effort from Cole Hamels who pitched 7 innings, allowing only one run. Werth and Howard both hit home runs, Werth's landing in the second deck in left field.
Kyle Kendrick takes the hill for the Phils looking to get his ERA below five. Kendrick has pitched well in the month of May which has improved his record to 2-1. Last time out, he faced Pittsburgh and allowed only two runs through eight innings. Lifetime against the Red Sox however, things don't look so good. Kyle is 0-2 with a 16.20 ERA in his career against Boston.
For the Sox, Daisuke Matsuzaka will be making only his fifth start of the season. Dice-K has allowed five or more runs in three of his four starts so far and his ERA sits at 7.89. He only pitched 4.1 innings Monday against the Yankees giving up seven runs on nine hits. His numbers against the Phils aren't very impressive either, Dice-K has a 9.00 ERA lifetime vs. the Phils.
Weather Forecast: 73, partly cloudy, 20% chance of rain, winds 12 MPH out to left
Injury Update: Rollins left last night's game with a right calf strain, the same injury that kept him out for a month. This one is only "mild" however and his current status is day-to-day. The Phillies say they will know more this afternoon. No roster move has been made yet.
