Phillies Vs. Giants, Game 3 Preview: Game Time, TV Schedule, Probable Pitchers

The Philadelphia Phillies and San Francisco Giants will conclude their three-game series at Citizens Bank Park on Sunday (1:35 p.m. ET on PHL 17). Philly's Joe Blanton (8-8) will take the mound and oppose former teammate Barry Zito (8-6), as the Phillies try and salvage at least a victory in the three-game series.

On Saturday, Philly fell in 10 innings by a score of 6-5. The loss was the Phillies seventh straight loss at home and dropped them to a disappointing 17-29 at their home park -- a mark that is worst in the major leagues.

Blanton will enter the game coming off a nice start on Monday, while Zito tossed seven scoreless innings against the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday. Both players pitched together with the Oakland A's from 2004-06.
