Phillies at Nationals: Pre-Game Notes

August 1, 2012
The Phillies shutout the Nationals on Tuesday night behind a dominant Cliff Lee. It also helped that Stephen Strasburg did not have a good outing. Tonight Vance Worley will take the mound, looking to continue the Phillies' momentum.

- Nate Schireholtz makes his Phillies debut tonight in right field. He will wear # 22.

- Dominic Brown has been called back up from Lehigh Valley. He has had oppurtunities to prove himself before, but now appears to be his best chance to show that he can play in the Majors.

-  Reliever Josh Lindblom has been added to the Phillies active roster. He will wear # 43.

- Vance Worley had a rough July, posting a 6.43 ERA for the month. It is the start of a new month, hopefully it will be the start of a better one for Worley.
