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

The Philadelphia Phillies look to put an end to their free fall as they continue a three-game series against the Atlanta Braves on Saturday night at Citizens Bank Park. (Game Time: 7:15 p.m., TV Schedule: Fox)

Despite the successful season debut of Ryan Howard, Philadelphia dropped the series opener to Atlanta on Friday night, 5-0. Howard went 2-for-4 with a double in his first appearance this season after offseason Achilles surgery, but even the slugger could not revive the slumbering Phillies offense, which has now scored two runs or fewer in five of its past seven games.

Joe Blanton will look to return Philadelphia to the win column. He'll be opposed by Atlanta's Tommy Hanson.
