PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Phillies turn to left-hander Cole Hamels on Wednesday night as they look to win their series with the Padres in San Diego.

After losing the opener in heartbreaking fashion, 4-3 in ten innings, on Monday, the Phillies bounced back on Tuesday to win 6-2 behind eight strong innings behind Kyle Kendrick.

Hamels has had a real nightmare of a season thus far. He is 2-11 with a 4.50 ERA and he is coming off a loss against the Mets where he couldn’t hold an early 3-0 lead. However, if he is going to turn things around against anyone, it’s going to be the Padres. The San Diego native has dominated his hometown team in his career, going 8-2 in 13 starts against the Padres with a 2.15 ERA.

San Diego will counter on the hill with rookie left-hander Robbie Erlin who is 1-0 in three appearances this season.

After this game, the Phillies head to Los Angeles for four games and then wrap up this road trip with three contests in Pittsburgh.

KYW’s Matt Leon spoke with Kevin Cooney, Phillies beat writer for the Bucks County Courier Times, about the match-up and the current state of the Phillies.
