Phillies face their former ace, Cubs' Hamels




The Philadelphia Phillies will look for their second straight win to open a three-game series against the visiting Chicago Cubs on Wednesday night.

It will be the second game for the Phillies since they fired hitting coach John Mallee and replaced him with former manager Charlie Manuel. The 75-year-old Manuel, who led the Phillies to the World Series title in 2008, is expected to be in the dugout Wednesday in his new role.

On Tuesday, the Phillies beat the Cubs 4-2 and had nine hits despite striking out 15 times.

The Phillies, at 61-58, have yet to hit consistently all season and still haven't posted a five-game winning streak.
