CHICAGO — Chris Volstad has not won a game since July 10, 2011. His team has lost nine straight games he's started and 15 of his last 17. He has a lifetime ERA of 5.89 against the Phillies.
And he's facing Roy Halladay on Thursday night.
So it's as close to a reverse lock as possible, as the Phillies go for a five-game winning streak. Charlie Manuel will start Hector Luna at first base. It's his first major-league start in 636 days.
Ty Wigginton is at third base for the injured Placido Polanco. He left Wednesday's game with a bruised left knee and is day to day.
