At the Ballpark: The first 7,500 kids receive a Brian Wilson road jersey on Sunday afternoon. If this was a Phillies game, every kid would receive a replica jersey. I've noticed that most teams limit their give-aways to the first 10,000 fans, or the first 7,500 fans and so on. The Phillies don't limit their give-aways. If you come to the game, and you're a kid, you get the give-away.
Phillies Probables: Cliff Lee (10-7, 3.14 ERA), Vance Worley (7-1, 2.33 ERA), Cole Hamels (12-6, 2.62 ERA), Roy Oswalt (4-6, 3.79 ERA)
