The Phillies are 19-21 overall and just 9-10 at Citizens Bank Park. They look to get to .500 at home with this afternoon’s second of a two-game series with the visiting Cleveland Indians. The Phillies enter action just 3.5 games out of first place in the N.L. East.

With Tuesday’s 6-2 win over the Indians, the Phillies have won each of their last nine games in which they have scored four or more runs.

They enter the contest with a season-high three-game winning streak.

After getting a breather, Chase Utley returns to the Phillies lineup. Utley started 37 of the Phillies first 40 games.
