Shairon Martis (5-0, 4.86 ERA) vs. Cole Hamels (2-2, 4.86 ERA)
Time: 7:05 p.m. at Citizens Bank Park, Philadelphia
Weather: Sunny, 75
TV: Comcast SportsNet
Twitter: Phillies Nation

JA Happ threw an OK game against the Nationals, and though Washington made it close, the bullpen kept them down for the win. Now ace Cole Hamels comes to the mound to secure a series win.

Hamels pitched well against the Nationals April 28, but had to leave the game early with an injury. Since, however, Hamels has been close to dominant, going 2-0 with a 2.88 ERA.

The Nationals bring Shairon Martis to the mound. The Phillies know him plenty already, giving up nine earned runs in 11.1 innings. His first outing was very good; his second outing was horrendous. Martis has been good in the month of May, going 3-0 with a 4.05 ERA.

With his four-hit game Friday night against Washington, Shane Victorino lifted his average to .293. He was hitting .262 just a week ago.

Your gamenight beer: The Trippel Belgian Style Ale from the New Belgian Brewing Co. of Colorado is a nice American version of the tripel. There might be a little too much banana flavor in it, but it’s worthy of a drink or two with its sweetness. I’d enjoy some barbecued chicken and corn on the cob with this.

Go Phillies!

    So Ryan Howard now has 7 RBIs in this game alone… or does that alst one not count as an RBI because of the error?

    Tracey neither of those last two runs count as RBI’s because they scored via an error.

  • Posts: 0 Tracey

    Yeah, I just checked the box score and they’ve got him down as 5 RBIs.

    Defense not completely worthless — that was a hell of an inning-ending catch.

    This ump is squeezing the zone big time.

    Thank god it’s not Jamie Moyer out there, Ed.

    RaUUUUUL!

     
  • Posts: 0 Ed R. (formerly just Ed)

    Seriously. Although it is the 7th inning and we all know Moyer is in bed by then.

    got Jamie Moyer out there tomorrow, could it be his day finally?

    Yeah, the last van back to the retirement home leaves the park at 9PM.

    hahahahaha @ Tracey

    I hope so Keith. I really really do.

    @Keith: Yeah, we’ve been waiting far too long for #250.

     
  • Posts: 0 Ed R. (formerly just Ed)

    That was some pretty crappy fielding by Victorino on that one.

     
  • Posts: 0 Manny

    An uppercut by Tracey.

    @Ed: Yeah, he didn’t run that one out at all.

    I’m definitely liking that commercial with the fiddle music during the rundown…

    But I could do without the Coors that looks like it’s peeing…

    @Manny: I tease because I love. And I’m in no position to make fun of Moyer’s age, because I turned 44 last week.

     
  • Posts: 0 Ed R. (formerly just Ed)

    hahahaha yeah the peeing Coors is a tad bit odd.
