R.C. Collins Posted September 19, 2010 Share Posted September 19, 2010 Monday, September 20, 7:05 PM ETJair Jurrjens(7-6, 4.64 ERA) vs. Cole Hamels (11-10, 3.01 ERA)Jurrjens:Jurrjens has lost back-to-back starts for the first time since late April and has been hit hard in both. In the last two games, he's pitched to an 11.37 ERA (11 earned runs in 8 2/3 innings) and has allowed 19 hits.Hamels:Hamels struck out 13 batters Tuesday against the Marlins. He also threw a career-high 127 pitches, although he will be pitching on extra rest. He has allowed just one run in his last 31 1/3 innings, and is 5-3 with a 1.79 ERA in his last 13 starts.Tuesday, September 21, 7:05 PM ETMike Minor (3-1, 5.84 ERA) vs Roy Halladay (19-10, 2.49 ERA)Minor:Since impressing in his first four career starts, Minor has seemingly battled fatigue in his past three outings. But the rookie left-hander at least looked better against the Nationals on Wednesday other than allowing Justin Maxwell's grand slam.Halladay:Halladay has a 4.41 ERA in his last five starts, but he got an extra day of rest before this big start against the Braves. He hopes it helps. Halladay is trying to become the first Phillies pitcher since Steve Carlton in 1982 to win 20 games.Wednesday, September 22, 7:05 PM ETTommy Hanson (10-11, 3.62 ERA) vs Roy Oswalt(7-1, 1.94 ERA)Hanson:Hanson endured a rough second inning vs. the Mets Friday and then impressed while retiring 13 of the final 14 batters he faced. He'll be looking to duplicate the success he experienced May 31, when he limited the Phils to three hits in 6 2/3 innings.Oswalt:The Phillies changed the rotation last week to have Oswalt pitch the Wednesday against Atlanta. Oswalt is 0-3 with a 7.58 ERA in seven regular-season starts against the Braves, but is 3-0 with a 2.89 ERA in three postseason starts against them.
