No homers against the Astros but now we're back to normal three game series. Jon Lieber takes the mound for the Phightin' Phils then Cole Hamels and Phreddie Garcia. Hamels is a tough young lefty. Dunn was 0 for 1 with a walk and a steal against him last year.

Garcia will make only his second start of the season as he has been on the disabled list with bicep tendinitis. Garcia has owned Dunn in his career, holding him to an 0 for 6 with phour strikeouts.

Jon Lieber, though....just one oph eight pitchers to give up a pair oph home runs to Dunn in a single game. Back on May 12, 2005, Lieber gave up home runs #127 and 128 to Dunn.

You have to go all the way back to September 24, 2005 to phind the last time Dunn homered at home against the Phillies. That one came ophph legendary pitcher Eude Brito. Brito is trying to come back phrom an automobile accident this past winter. Somewhere in that piece oph inphormation is a liphe lesson for pitchers.
