Florida Marlins (86-74) at Philadelphia Phillies (92-68)

Anibal Sanchez, RHP (3-8, 4.10 ERA) vs. Cole Hamels, LHP (10-10, 4.25 ERA)

Time: 4:10 p.m at Citizens Bank Park
Weather:  Cloudy, 69
TV:  FOX
Twitter: Phillies Nation

The regular season is quickly coming to a close.  The Phillies already clinched, but it will still be an intense series at The Bank.  In game 161, the Phillies continue to fight for home field advantage.  The Phillies dropped last night’s game to the Marlins, so this is a “must win” in order to win to keep their home field hopes alive.

Cole Hamels will make his last tuneup before the postseason.  Hamels would like to end his roller coaster season on a positive note.  Against the Marlins this season, Hamels is 0-1 with a 4.67 ERA in 17.1 innings.  Marlins hitters are batting .254 against him.  Chris Coghlan is 4-for-7 with two home runs against Hamels.

Hamels will be opposed by Anibal Sanchez.  In the second game of a double header, Sanchez tossed eight scoreless innings against the Phillies.  If Sanchez is on, he can be really good.  However, if he is off, he can be very wild.

Today’s lineup: All the regulars are in.  On a side note, the Phillies added some pitching depth, recalling Antonio Bastardo.

Rollins SS, Victorino CF, Utley 2B, Howard 1B, Ibanez LF, Werth RF, Feliz 3B, Ruiz C, Hamels P.

Bud Light Golden WheatYour Gameday Beer – Bud Light Golden Wheat
I just picked up a six pack of this new offering from Budweiser out of sheer curiosity. It’s not often you see variations of a light beer. This one is intended for a mass audience so it’s not as strong a Wheat as Pyramid’s, Leinenkugels or even Blue Moon. I would say it’s like Bud Light with a little more flavor – the packaging says coriander and citrus peels but it’s hard to pinpoint them among all the bubbles. Today have dinner in front of the TV, a Phillies win and spaghetti and meatballs sounds like a plan. – By Brian

GO PHILLIES!

    Charlie must be ticked they lost the last two games if he is playing all the regulars. If the Brewers hold on (5-4 in the 8th) then the Phillies clinch home field in the NLDS before the Phillies game starts. The only way Phillies get homefield in NLCS is if the Phillies win their last 2 and the Rockies beat the Dodgers in the next 2.

    I can’t anymore. This bleep is really bleeping me off. Our starters look like drunk trash. Chase is garbage. If Howard was playing like this he’d running for his life….. I’m done til the playoffs.

    Cole Hamels is damaged goods. He must be hurting badly as he is simply mediocre at best.

    51 rbis in 49 games …un-frickin’-believable!

    The guy who goes to the Reading Phils games with us wears lederhosen when he plays in his German band, they look rather uncomfortable.

    yeah it means leather pants in german.

    WHY IS FOX SHOWING BRAVES – NATS??? AGHHHHH

     
  • Posts: 0 j reed

    actually it’s “leather trousers”

     
  • Posts: 0 winks tidley

    we should try to field an all-Amish team. They may be able to beat the Phils of today.

     
  • Posts: 0 j reed

    yeah but leather trousers sounds a bit risque for the amish

    “The appearance of the the Law must be upheld. Especially while it’s being broken!” -William M. Tweed

    Charlie is trying to do the same. God bless’em. Those drunk bastards!

    That was harsh. Chase isn’t garbage… Far from it. Why was he pulled?

  • Posts: 0 teejvee

    Utley is mendoza for the past month.
    OUCH.

    HK – cause the cards lost so we by default get home field advantage for the first round.

     
  • Posts: 0 joedad

    HK, have you seen him play lately? It is a rest day I think, nothing more. He could use tomorrow off too.

     
  • Posts: 0 j reed

    that’s what happens when you overtrain

     
  • Posts: 0 j reed

    i’d prefer to seeing the fraulines in the lederhosen

     
  • Posts: 0 Harry Kalas

    I was sure we’d tie it up there….. This 1 or 2 run thing is driving us all a little nuts….

    jayson get something started

     
  • Posts: 0 Harry Kalas

    we suck……all we need to do is win two games….the dodgers could easily loose thier final two…our shaky bp would benefit heavily from home field advantage. Charlie said he wanted this game… One run thru 6 at home?? Pretty sad…..

     
  • Posts: 0 j reed

    that’s why we need to get Chone Figgins, a legit .300 contact guy…someone consistent. Too many streaky hitters in this line-up
