Phillies at Diamondbacks: April 23rd to April 25th

Chase Field - Phoenix, AZ
Monday and Tuesday 9:40, Wednesday 3:40

Phillies 7-9, 5th Place in N.L. East, 5 games behind the Nationals
Diamondbacks 8-8, Tied for 3rd Place in N.L. West, 4 games behind the Dodgers

Phillies Probables:  Kyle Kendrick (0-0, 1.93), Vance Worley (1-1, 2.37), Cole Hamels (2-1, 2.95)
Diamondbacks Probables:  Wade Miley (1-0, 3.12), Josh Collmenter (0-1, 10.22), Trevor Cahill (1-1, 2.84)

At the Ballpark:  The Diamondbacks have no give-aways scheduled during the series, and the only promotion is that Wednesday afternoon's game is a "Senior Day."  I'm not really sure what that means, although I'm assuming that perhaps senior citizens get a ticket discount?

Maybe by "Senior Day" they mean that the D-Backs will field a line-up of high school seniors--or even senior citizens--to give the Phillies a chance to avoid getting swept?

We can only hope.
