Doubleheaders are awesome, even when both teams are, more or less, out of playoff contention. Game 1 features a pretty lopsided pitching matchup, but Chatwood has shown the ability to hang in there, although he has regressed in his last few starts. We'll see if he can keep the Phillies, who struck out a ton against Jeff Francis of all people, off balance.
I'll post a separate game thread for Game 2, although the wraps may come at the same time, unless Game 1 is a short one.
