The Phillies have announced that Cole Hamels will pitch game 1 on Wednesday, Myers for game 2 on Thursday, and Moyer for game 3 on Saturday.
Yes, Moyer is more consistent than Myers, but the Phillies seem to prefer to not use two lefties back to back. Also, Moyer, an experienced pitcher, is who you'd want pitching game 3, the first one in Milwaukee.
If the series reaches game 4, Blanton could start, or relieve Cole Hamels on short test. If somehow there is a game 5, Brett Myers would likely get the ball in Philly.
The Brewers are likely going to start young-phenom Yovani Gallardo who just returned from the DL. C.C. cannot pitch until game 2, but he likely will make his fourth straight start on 3 days rest. Sure, he's been successful, but you cannot expect that run to last forever. Ben Sheets is likely out for the NLDS and Jeff Suppan or Dave Bush would pitch game 3. - Milwaukee Brewers
Hopefully the excitement of finally making the playoffs in Milwaukee makes them tight for the postseason like we saw against Colorado last year for the Phils.
Check in tomorrow for a full series preview.
