On Monday, Joe Blanton will take the hill to try and stop the skid at 1:05 p.m. ET on COMCAST.
In the first two meetings, New York has won 8-5 and 7-4 on Saturday and Sunday respectively. So far, Curtis Granderson has appeared to stay hot even through winter, hitting a home run and scoring twice in the first contest. Then yesterday Alex Rodriguez hit a bomb off of Roy Halladay, en route to a 3 for 3 afternoon.
For Philadelphia, Hunter Pence went deep on Sunday in a losing effort off of Freddy Garcia after doing so the day before against Ivan Nova. Jonathan Papelbon has also been a noticeable bright spot in a very small sample size, throwing a 1-2-3 inning on Saturday.
As for the rest of this week's schedule:
Tuesday: Philadelphia at Toronto - 1:05 p.m. ET
A nice time to get a good luck at Jose Bautista, when the games don't count.
Wednesday: Houston at Philadelphia - 1:05 p.m. ET
Hunter Pence gets to play his old mates once again.
Thursday: Pittsburgh at Philadelphia - 1:05 p.m. ET
