Phillies-Cubs Game Thread 5/16/12

The Phillies travel for a quick two-game road trip in Chicago before heading back home for their first inter-league series with the Boston Red Sox. It’s an odd bit of scheduling that will also end their season series with the Cubs, perhaps thankfully so. The Cubs took two of three from the Phillies at the end of April, outscoring them 10-2 in their two victories behind starters Paul Maholm and Matt Garza. Garza (3.45 xFIP) is back on the bump tonight, opposing right-hander Kyle Kendrick (5.35), now filling in for the injured Vance Worley. The Phillies are currently on their first three-game winning streak of the season and have made it all the way back to one game under .500. A short series sweep would take them over .500 for the first time since Opening Day.
