Blanton Looking for Bounce Back
The Phillies starting rotation has Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee, Cole Hamels and Roy Oswalt and then they have Joe Blanton.  Not many people have talked about Blanton and he has done nothing to show people he belongs with the top four.  Blanton is 0-1 with a terrible ERA of 10.45 in two starts. He has allowed 17 hits in just over 10 innings of work. Blanton is 2-1 in his career against the Brewers but his ERA of 5.61 is very high.

Marcum Pitching Well
The Brewers will look to Shaun Marcum on Monday to continue his fine pitching. He is 2-1 on the baseball betting season with a 2.55 ERA.  Marcum is 2-0 in his career against the Phillies with a 3.46 ERA.  Marcum allowed just four hits on Wednesday in seven shutout innings against the Pirates.

Philly Success
The Phillies beat the Brewers in five of six matchups last season including two of three at home so that is something to remember as you bet on MLB.  Blanton was a winner against the Brewers last year although it was not a great outing for him as he allowed five runs in seven innings.
