Cole Hamels, coming off back-to-back wins for the first time this season, looks to get the Phillies to the .500 mark at the all-star break.

Hamels (4-11, 4.17 ERA) opposes Chicago White Sox lefthander Jose Quintana (4-2, 3.67) in todays’ series finale at Citizens Bank Park.

The Phillies are now 47-48 after splitting two extra inning games with the White Sox on Saturday.

Hamels has beaten Pittsburgh and Washington in his last two starts, allowing a total of two earned runs in 15 innings, with 12 strikeouts and one walk.

The Phillies have won in each of Hamels last three starts, including a no-decision in a 7-5 win on June 26 at San Diego.

Before the game the Phillies activated catcher Erik Kratz and placed centerfielder Ben Revere on the disabled list. Revere said before the game that he has a broken bone in right ankle (not his foot as previously reported).

Here is the Phillies lineup today.

1.Michael Young, 3B

2. Chase Utley, 2B

3. Jimmy Rollins, SS

4. Domonic Brown, LF

5. Darin Ruf, 1B

6. Delmon Young, RF

7. John Mayberry, Jr., CF

8. Carlos Ruiz, C

9. Cole Hamels, P
