Most of the nation will get a National League East encounter as the Philadelphia Phillies conclude their three game series at the New York Mets. Start time is set for 7PM Eastern Time over MLB Network. Cole Hamels will take the mound for Philadelphia and he will oppose R.A. Dickey of the Mets. Runs could be at a premium here as both starters allow very few base runners. Hamels enters play with a record of 10-4 with an ERA of 3.08. The knuckleball throwing R.A. Dickey has enjoyed a great start to the 2012 season as he owns a record of 12-1 and an ERA of just 2.15. Philadelphia has struggled mightily as heading into July 4th the club has lost six straight games. In the series opener on Tuesday the Mets routed the Phillies 11-1.

Those in the New York and Philadelphia market will get the final of the three game set between the San Francisco Giants and Washington Nationals over MLB Network. These two NL clubs get together in Washington at 7PM Eastern Time. Thursday’s starters will feature Giants right hander Matt Cain as he will face Ross Detwiler from Washington. The series opener was played on Tuesday with the Nationals earning the 9-3 win. After struggling for offense Washington has seen a sudden surge offensively as the club has scored 60 runs over their past seven games entering their July 4th meeting with San Francisco. The Nationals starter Ross Detwiler is 4-3 on the year with an ERA of 3.30. The Nationals right hander recently spent time in the bullpen and returned to starting on June 24th. In two starts back to starters duty Detwiler allowed four earned runs and nine hits over 11 2/3rds innings. Matt Cain has been solid this season for the Giants as Wednesday’s starter boasts and ERA of just 2.53 and record of 9-3. Cain looks to bounce back after giving up five earned runs and eleven hits in 6 2/3rds innings on Friday in a losing effort against the Reds.
