Cloyd to pitch on three days' rest vs. Astros
PHILADELPHIA -- Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said Tyler Cloyd will pitch on short rest Thursday against the Houston Astros.

Because of a rainout Saturday, the Phillies had Cloyd and Cole Hamels pitch in Sunday's doubleheader against the Rockies.

Cloyd threw just 76 pitches in four innings, so he should have enough in the tank to get through five.

"With my pitch count last night, it shouldn't be too bad," Cloyd said. "We'll dial down the lifting and the bullpen [before Thursday]. We'll just work on little things and get ready for Thursday."
