Diamondbacks at Phillies: July 27th through July 29th

Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday 7:05

Records: Diamondbacks 37-62, 5th Place in NL West (22 games behind the Padres); Phillies 53-46, 2nd Place in NL East (4½ games behind the Braves)

22 games back? Really? I had no idea the Diamondbacks were that awful this year, even though they fired manager A.J. Hinch earlier this month. Their top pitcher, Dan Haren, was just traded to the Angels and interim manager Kirk Gibson has a bunch of guys on this team I've honestly never heard of. They're certainly a long way away from the purple and gold glory years of Curt Schilling.

1999 Pacific Aurora #144 Curt Schilling

Diamondbacks Probables: Rodrigo Lopez, Edwin Jackson, Joe Saunders
Phillies Probables: Cole Hamels, Roy Halladay, Kyle Kendrick
