Phillies Vs Dodgers: A Dodger Killer Vs A Phillie Killer

Cole Hamels takes the hill tonight for the rubber game of the Phillies series against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The SoCal born Hamels has owned the Dodgers with a career 1.50 ERA. He’s also beat the Dodgers three times in the playoffs.

However… Hamels will be facing Hiroki Kuroda, who in turn, has owned the Phillies. In four career starts against them, Kuroda is 2-0 with a 0.68 ERA. Kuroda has lost three straight however and has posted a 7.36 ERA over that span.

Meanwhile, Hamels has been rolling in his last four starts , going 3-0 with a 2.17 ERA. The only game he did not win was over the weekend when he allowed only one run over eight innings to the PIrates, but didn’t get a decision.

At the plate, the Phillies will be looking to solve their recent power outage. They haven’t hit a home run in six games, which is their longest streak of the season. The Phils took four of six from the Dodgers last year, including two of three at Citizens Bank Park.
