Notes From The Phillies' 2-1 Win Over Colorado

Chatwood befuddled the Phillies, allowing only a two-out single by Andrew Knapp in the fifth inning.

In five May starts, Hellickson is 1-2 with a 7.30 ERA. Valasquez will be looking to bounce back from a 6-3 loss at Pittsburgh where he was charged with five runs on seven hits and two walks in 5.1 frames. It was their major league-best 18th win on the road. Michael Saunders doubled with one out against Scott Oberg, and Tommy Joseph followed that up with a single to score Saunders and hand the Rockies a loss.

Blackmon drove in a pair of runs, increasing his major league-leading RBI total to 42.

Cardinals starters have posted 11 quality starts in their last 12 games, but in typical Coors Field fashion, those numbers can be thrown out the window and this series could quickly turn into a shootout.

Maikel Franco and Cameron Rupp returned to the Phillies' starting lineup after each received two consecutive days off. Franco went 1 for 5 while Rupp drew three walks in four plate appearances. Franco is hitting just.221, and Rupp has struggled defensively lately with a couple costly errors and garnered public criticism from pitching coach Bob McClure about the way he calls a game. Thursday's outing will be Rockies starter Tyler Anderson's first time facing the Phillies this season and the third in his career.

Phillies: RHP Vince Velasquez (2-4, 5.98) looks to rebound following a shaky start in his last game where he allowed five earned runs in just 5 1/3 innings.

Anderson, who turned a forgettable April into a strong May, limited the Phillies to four hits through his first six innings.
