Padres RHP Mat Latos (5-3, 3.08) vs. Phillies RHP Roy Halladay (7-3, 1.99)
Phillies vs. Latos: Latos hasn't allowed more than two runs in any of his last six starts, including a shutout of the Giants and eight scoreless innings against the Astros.
Padres vs. Halladay: It's probably too much to expect a second consecutive perfect game, but the Padres are hitting just .249 as a team (tied for 14th in the NL) and have hit just 37 home runs, the second-fewest in the NL.
Brad Lidge vs. the Padres: Manager Charlie Manuel has said he wants to ease Lidge back into the closer's role, but he was ready to call on the newly activated righthander in a save situation that never materialized Wednesday.
The Padres: San Diego comes to town as the surprising leader in the National League West. The Padres are an NL-best 14-9 on the road.
The Phillies: They've lost 11 of their last 15 games and are coming off a 2-7 road trip. They haven't scored more than three runs in 11 straight games.
Tomorrow vs. Padres: Phillies LHP Jamie Moyer (5-5, 4.26) vs. Padres RHP Jon Garland (6-2, 2.15).
Sunday vs. Padres: Phillies RHP Joe Blanton (1-4, 5.68) vs. Padres RHP Kevin Correia (5-4, 4.55).
