With the trade deadline growing closer, Hamels faces the Brewers tonight

Cole Hamels and the Phillies look to even out the series tonight against Milwaukee.

Starting Pitching Matchup:

Milwaukee Brewers (30-48)Philadelphia Phillies (27-51)
RHP Taylor Jungmann  LHP Cole Hamels
(2-1, 2.74 ERA) (5-6, 3.26 ERA)

Taylor Jungmann's stock has dropped some since being selected 12th overall in the 2011 draft. While not necessarily being bad, Jungmann hasn't been great and he failed to crack the top ten prospect list of what is considered to be not one of the stronger farm systems. Still Jungmann was called up earlier in the month and has pitched quite well since joining the big leagues.

With a month to go until the trade deadline, Cole Hamels could very well be pitching his last games in red pinstripes (though it seems like we've said that a few seasons in a row now). Hamels is looking to rebound from a tough outing against the Yankees last week where he surrendered five runs over five innings in a game that eventually put a period at the end of Ryne Sandberg's managerial career for the time being. 

 The Brewers are throwing the righties at Hamels today while the Phillies have the same line up as last night, save for Carlos Ruiz at catcher in place of Cameron Rupp.
