Rotation picks up where they left off

The rotation is off to a great start. Joe Blanton took a huge first step in his recovery from injuries that plagued his 2011 season by tossing two scoreless innings in his debut. Cliff Lee followed with two scoreless innings of his own yesterday in a 7-0 victory over the Blue Jays. Cole Hamels and Roy Halladay each allowed one run over two innings in their debuts.

The Vanimal, Vance Worley makes his debut today against Houston as he looks to avoid a sophomore slump after a tremendous rookie campaign. The Phillies lineup today:

1. J. Rollins, SS
2. S. Victorino, CF
3. H. Pence, RF
4. J. Thome, DH
5. J. Mayberry. Jr, 1B
6. L. Nix, LF
7. K. Frandsen, 3B
8. E. Kratz, C
9. M. Martinez, 2B

Jonathan Papelbon and Dontrelle Willis will also make their second appearances.
