Lohse and Harang both threw complete game shutouts on Easter, and that's not the only thing they have in common so far this season. They've both pitched very well (Harang's FIP is 3.49, while Lohse's FIP is 3.90), but Lohse has pitched with an offense behind him. Lohse has had his team score 25 runs for him in 6 starts, while Harang has only gotten 10.

Phillips is back in there tonight, which is a good thing. Votto could be back tomorrow, but it could be as late as Monday. Baker is still not sure about Gonzo, though he did take some groundballs. They need to just DL him already.
