The Philadelphia Phillies open a two-game interleague series on the West Coast tonight against the Los Angeles Angels.

Right-hander Jerome Williams will make his debut in a Phillies uniform tonight. Philadelphia picked up Williams after the Texas Rangers released him following an August first start allowing 10 runs in four innings.

The Angels, who currently hold the top wildcard spot in the American League, will have left-hander C.J. Wilson on the mound tonight. Wilson has struggled since coming off the disabled list. Over his last six starts, Wilson has gone 1-2 with an ERA of 11.03

Philadelphia yesterday fell to the New York Mets, 5-3. David Buchanan allowed three runs over six-plus innings and took the loss. Darin Ruf hit a two-run homer for the last-place Phillies.
