The two-time defending National League Champion Philadelphia Phillies come to Minute Maid Park for their only visit this season, bringing plenty of star power with them. If you love the long ball, this three-game series could be your dream. With Ryan Howard, Chase Utley and Jimmy Rollins leading the way, Philadelphia's the closest thing the NL has seen to the vaunted Big Red Machine of the 1970s. The Houston Astros' Hunter Pence and Michael Bourn might have trouble keeping up with the league's best team, but there's plenty of chance to be entertained.
New Phillies ace Roy Halladay (who figures to fight the San Francisco Giants' Tim Lincecum for the NL Cy Young award) faces off against Roy Oswalt (who lost to Lincecum in Houston's opener) in the Sunday afternoon series closer.
