June 15 – Toronto RHP Drew Hutchison (5-3, 4.66 ERA) vs. Philadelphia RHP Vance Worley (3-2, 3.00)
June 16– Toronto LHP Ricky Romero (7-1, 4.15) vs. Philadelphia LHP Cliff Lee (0-3, 3.18)
June 17 – Toronto RHP Henderson Alvarez (3-6, 3.87) vs. Philly RHP Kyle Kendrick (2-6, 5.08)Think the Blue Jays have had it rough this year? Their problems pale in comparison to the trials and tribulations of the Phillies.
Philadelphia stumbles into Toronto in last place in the National League East. It is hard to believe this team was 28-25 and 2 1/2 games out of first place on June 1.
If the Phillies keep playing like they have the past month, it won’t matter when the likes of first baseman Ryan Howard, second baseman Chase Utley and starter Roy Halladay return from injuries. By then, it could very well be too late.
