Phils tab Lee for game one, Hamels for two

Cliff Lee will start game one tomorrow against Ubaldo Jimenez and the Rockies, while Cole Hamels takes the ball for game two, the Phillies announced this morning.

Although Hamels only threw 47 pitches on Saturday, it didn't make sense to bring him back on three days' rest for the first time in his career. Lee is well rested and ready to go, and Hamels can pitch the following day while adhering to his normal routine. No word on whether Joe Blanton takes the ball for game three or if Charlie sends J.A. Happ to the mound to throw another lefty at Colorado.
