Cubs-Phillies Game Thread 4/27/12

With the way the Phillies have hit over the first three weeks of the season, you’d be hard-pressed to find a similarly-impotent offense in the National League. Fortunately for the Phillies, one of them is in town tonight for the first game of a four-game series in the Chicago Cubs, who are in last place in the NL Central with a 6-13 record. As a team, the Cubs have posted a .278 wOBA, third-worst in all of baseball. They have the lowest isolated power at .098, and only one player has hit more than one home run: Bryan LaHair with four. Starter Paul Maholm will be looking to silence the Phillies in the hope that his team can scratch and claw their way to a couple runs in support. Roy Halladay, currently with a 1.50 ERA, looks to win his fourth game in five starts and, at the same time, quiet the recent concerns about his lack of strikeouts.
