Phillies fans have been disappointed recently as the Cubs have mounted two straight comeback wins in Wrigley Field. Philadelphia has a chance to even the four-game series this afternoon in the series finale

Jerad Eickhoff finally got some run support last night against the Cubs, but the Phillies pitching allowed four runs in the sixth inning in a 5-4 loss.

Thursday we have a battle between two pitchers, one being 15 years his opponents elder. It’s Zach Eflin versus John Lackey. Last season Lackey dominated the Phillies in two starts, allowing one run off seven hits in 14 combined innings with 14 strikeouts.

Today the Phils look for revenge as they attempt to stay in second place in the National League East.
