Gamenight: Phillies (9-10) At Rockies (9-9)

A little bit of offense went a long way for the Phillies yesterday, as they beat the Mets, 5-4. The bullpen held their ground, winning a battle where Chase Utley hit two home runs and Pedro Feliz knocked the game-winner.

Now the Phillies head to Denver, where they meet the team that eliminated them from their first playoff berth since 1993. They’ll face lefty Mark Redman; against lefties, the Phillies are hitting just .231. Kyle Kendrick, off his best start of the season, goes for the good guys.

Phillies: Kyle Kendrick (1-2), 4.40 ERA
Rockies: Mark Redman (2-1), 4.60 ERA

Gametime: 8:35 p.m.
Weather: 56 degrees, partly cloudy
Lineup: Taguchi/Werth/Utley/Howard/Burrell/Feliz/Ruiz/Bruntlett/Kendrick

Your gamenight beer: I’m not recommending Coors, no, that would be cruel. Instead, we’re going with Hazed & Infused by the Boulder Beer Co., a nice pale ale with some citrus taste hidden inside. Drink it with some salmon, caught from the lakes of Colorado, if you should.

Go Phillies!

    Sitting in Pat’s in LoDo. Packed with phils fans. Hopefully the philly enthusiasm will translate into a W tonight.

    chris.I: I have Comcast – I just noticed that it’s not listed at all. It doesn’t look like we’re getting the game tonight. Not sure why, I’m a little pissed off.

    Yea I know..Hopefully its just a mistake with the cable?? If I’m correct it did the same thing last year too. Guess we’ll find out in about 15 min. If it’s not aired, I expect Rob and the rest of the ”P.N” would be good spectators LoL. But this def blows for sure

    I actually prefer to watch Howard strike out 4 times, rather than read it about it on here.

    HaHa..Yea! I know right? I’d say 2 K’s, a DP, and a pop up to the pitcher instead LoL

    I got it on MLB.tv, guys, so I’ll give you all updates as well, though mine won’t be as drunken and ridiculous as the boys at Coors.

    Yeah, I heard someone yell “Come on, Pat!” when he was up. And is it just me or are these fans cheering for everything??

    I already stopped watching the game – I can’t watch our offense struggle anymore. I’m switching to Flyers/Caps.

    Yea I know..Comcast is a bunch of retards. Glad we all got to watch it. We’ll be alright though, Its only the 3rd inning.

    We’re between LF and 3rd base, 6th row…if Holliday tries for any foul balls, you’ll see us interfering.

    Its a cold night with minimal action. Beside the torreabla bomb and utley turning that 463, its been pretty mellow. Not a lot of spectators in the crowd but the phils fans are here in force

    Pat needs to bat 4th until Howard gets hot (if he gets hot).

    Watching Aaron Heilman collapse against the Cubbies is great – looks like the Mets are going to drop game 1 in Chicago.

    it’s a lot harder to talk smack to Rockies fans when KK is serving up bombs. the wind’s blowing in also.

    That’s six in five games and ties a franchise record with five straight games with a homer.

    seems like the offense is coming alive a little bit…howard has yet to k tonight..impressive

    Are you just repeating what the announcers say? =p

    Taylor Bucholz! The lower merion product.

     
  • Posts: 0 Mike T.

    I guess I’m not as easily impressed as everyone else here. Chase is a huge talent, but I overlook him because the rest of our lineup stinks.

    That was quite a sophisticated double-switch for Charlie.

     
  • Posts: 0 Fran

    I dont understand why Charlie takes out Pat when hes on 1st for a pinch runner. Takeout howard on second and let pat finish the game. Cant anyone on that bench play 1st?? It dosnt make sense. If we make a late run i want pat at the plate not Ryan. Anyone else agree with that???

    The only way we’re scoring is with a walk.

    oh shit, we just get the lead and manuel decides to fuck it up by bringing in Gordon

    Fran, I agree. Dobbs could come in and play first. Why sub Burrell there when the guy ahead of him is worse on the paths?

     
  • Posts: 0 Tim

    To Fran, even more than that, do you want TJ Bohn at the plate?

     
  • Posts: 0 Tim

    and off of that, we bring in Bohn for defense?

     
  • Posts: 0 Mike W.

    apparently we dont want him in left.

     
  • Posts: 0 Mike T.

    I can’t watch this guy pitch.

     
  • Posts: 0 Mike W.

    Um, he looked pretty damn crisp there. Even basically got 4 outs (thank bohn).

    Ooh, Flash! Looking damn good out there.

    Why do people keep bagging on Gordon? Besides the blow up on opening day, he’s pitched pretty well. In fact, he just did a good job getting “4″ outs tonight thanks to Bohn botching a fly ball.
