Philadelphia Phillies (58-42) at San Francisco Giants (56-46)

Cliff Lee (7-9, 3.14 ERA) vs. Ryan Sadowski (2-3, 4.81 ERA)

Time: 10:05 p.m at AT&T Park
Weather: Partly Cloudy and Windy, 60
TV:Comcast Sportsnet
Twitter: Phillies Nation

Tonight’s the night Cliff Lee will be making his much anticipated Phillies debut.  He’ll also try to halt the Phillies two game skid.

The reigning American League Cy Young winner is having a terrific season with a 3.14 earned run average and 1.30 WHIP in 152 innings with the Tribe.  He had a 7-9 record, but lacked run support.  The Phillies failed to support their pitchers over the last two games.  They’ve only scored two runs in last two games, very uncharacteristic for the Phillies.

Ryan Sadowski started his Major League career by throwing 13 consevutive scoreless innings.  Since, he has allowed 13 earned runs in the last 11.1 innings he has pitched.  However, he has pitched well at AT&T Park.  His ERA at home is 1.50 in 12 innings.

Your Gameday Beer- Konigshoeven Blond Trappist Ale
Tonight’s beer kicks off our European tour and comes from the De Koningshoeven Brewery, a Dutch Trappist brewery. It is the only producer of Trappist beer outside of Belgium. Run inside an abbey, the monks get the water for the beer from five 200-metre deep wells on the grounds. La Trappe Blond is one of their many offerings. This Pale Ale is bitter and sweet like fruit candy, but less sweet by comparison to the more popular Leffe Blonde. – By Brian

GO PHILLIES!

    Joedad – no worries. We are all smart enough to know that what you or I says has nothing to do with the outcome of the game. Its just fun to play along with the superstitions is all. Did you call a bases loaded walk this inning? If so nice job!

    CA, like you said, just having fun. It just spooks me out sometimes when the opposite I wish for comes true. It does more often than not.

    Jimmy and Charlie having a meeting of the minds. I would love to know what they talk about, they both crack me up.

    at least jayson can get a clutch hit. Maybe it’ll spark the rest of the team for the rest of the weekend. The weather might be making it hard to hit, because they players arent used to playing this cold weather in july and the impact on the bat may be affected.

    Jack the Ripper weather…

    Well, I’m pulling a Cantanza and leaving while on top. I probably wouldn’t be able to call the last few innings as good as I called this one. GO PHILS!

    Lee, you are not going to have a complete game your first day as a Phillies.

    Yikes, what happened, too cold? they said it’s in the 50′s out there on the bay.

    Figures the offense finally puts together an inning and that backfires on Lee’s control….

    I love Lee’s composure. Takes a no-hitter to the sixth – gives up a double – not phased – mows down the rest of the inning. Sits too long during the seveth, gives up a walk and throws a few more balls – not phased – closes out the inning like nothing doing. He is fun to watch!

    and he hits too!

    I don’t care how cold it is San Fran. It sure is starting to get hot in the Phillies dugout.

    Hey Jersey, props to Amaro too. The man couldn’t have done any better as a rookie GM.

    at least it looks like their bats are hitting a little better. A fortunate schedule quirk for me allows me to see tomorrow nights game against Lincecum… I hope they continue their pace, the phils need to chase him as early as possible. I do however think Zito is beatable, I talked to a giants fan yesterday who thinks zito has been pitching well enough to get the W vs the phils.
    Anyone notice Pedro’s bad inning today? Still pitched well for 4 innings though

    After seeing Lee hit tonight, there is no more need for Bruntlett.

    Does Lee pitch the 9th?

     
  • Posts: 0 MOphan

    Lee’s at a hundred pitches. Wondering if Charlie is gonna let him finish the game. Why not?

     
  • Posts: 0 NJ

    Hope Charlie at least gives Lee a chance to finish this one

    Romo with a 6 era. I don’t think it will get any higher. That’s my call.

    Whatever else happens the rest of the season, Lee, you are truly an ace. No matter what anyone else has to say. Great job!

    I love how he put away the ball from the final out as soon as he got it from Howard. Shows how much being in the Phils means to him.

    Was that a complete game? I wonder, what more would Halladay had done, and for what price?
