Phillies Vs. Giants Preview: Saturday Game Time, TV Schedule And Probable Starters

The Philadelphia Phillies (41-53) will look to rebound from their Game 1 loss on Saturday, taking on the San Francisco Giants (52-41) in the second game of the three-game series. Cole Hamels (11-4 3.07 ERA) will take the hill for Philadelphia, facing off with Matt Cain (10-3 2.56 ERA) for San Francisco in what could easily be an impressive pitchers' duel. Both men are in the top 10 in the National League for wins, strikeouts and innings pitched.

Philadelphia will likely need an impressive performance from Hamels. The offense was lacking in Friday's game, and history does not bode well for Game 2. Ryan Howard, Shane Victorino, Chase Utley and Jimmy Rollins have all struggled against Cain.

Date/Time: Saturday July 21, 4:05 p.m. ET

Location: Citizens Bank Park

TV: FOX
