Philadelphia Phillies (2-3) at YankeesNew York Yankees (3-2)

Pedro Martinez, RHP (0-1) vs. Andy Pettitte, LHP (1-0)

Time: 7:57 p.m at Yankees Stadium
Weather: Mostly Cloudy, 51 degrees
TV: FOX
Twitter: Phillies Nation

Once again, it’s do or die.  Cliff Lee and Chase Utley pushed this series to Game 6.  Now, Pedro Martinez is handed the ball needing to further extend the series.  A win evens the series and keeps the Phillies’ hopes of repeating alive.

Pedro Martinez lost to the Yankees in Game 2, though he pitched very well.  He gave up three runs in six innings, yet tonight is the type of situation where “the most influential player that ever stepped into Yankee Stadium” thrives.

The Phillies offense owe Pedro.  He has been excellent during the postseason, but the Phillies failed to provide him with run support.  Chase Utley brings in a hot bat and could break Reggie Jackson’s World Series home run record with another dinger tonight.  As you recall, Jayson Werth hit two home runs off Pettitte in Game 3.

Unlike Pedro who is pitching on normal rest, Andy Pettitte is pitching on three days’ rest.  In his career, Pettitte is 4-6 with a 4.15 ERA on short rest, with his last appearance coming in 2006. He has been perfect (wins-wise) this postseason.  He won both clinching games of the postseason this year and he has a chance for another.

It’s a must-win.  Keep the high hopes!

Phillies Lineup: Shane Victorino is in the lineup despite having a bruised finger.  Raul Ibanez will DH with Ben Francisco in left.  Pedro Feliz is batting seventh.

Rollins (SS), Victorino (CF), Utley (2B), Howard (1B), Werth (RF), Ibanez (DH), Feliz (3B), Francisco (LF), Ruiz (C)

Yankees Lineup: Jeter (SS), Damon (LF), Teixeira (1B), Rodriguez (3B), Matsui (DH), Posada (C), Cano (2B), Swisher (RF), Gardner (CF)

GO PHILLIES!

This dark lager from Victory honors the Baltic god of thunder, and tonight so will the Phillies. Another heavyweight at 8.5% ABV, Baltic Thunder is brewed in the European porter style. With subtle strains of fruit found among the traditional thick roasted toffee and cocoa flavors, this is a porter you can drink more than one of. Tonight order a cheesesteak pizza and get crazy. – By Brian

    Matsui is the only guy on the Yankees I have a drop of respect for.

    Ahh come on, keep Chan Ho in just for the international factor of it.

    Well Mike D., I realize that Matsui is a good hitter as he hit .274 and had 28 HRs and 90 RBIs during the regular season and no doubt is a good two strike hitter but in some cases it just has been mediocre Philly pitching; poor pitch location that has helped him out, but yes, I would tip my hat to him.

    @Georgie, best thing I’ve heard here out all night, outside of super fan Tracey. Any positive fans should join Tracey and form Tracey’s Troopers at actual games.

    I hope that they do not bring back Chad Durbin next year. Three runs given up in relief in this important game.

    Yep I got the E-Meter out Mike D. and I love my cat but I might just make a burnt offering. I’ll wait to the nineth. Now lets see how wide the strike zone gets for Mo

    One pitch, his whole career. Unbelievable. Damn you, mom and dad, for not teaching me how to throw a cutter!

    Why do I still feel optimistic? I’m stone sober. Weird.

    Here’s a statement you don’t here everyday: Scott Eyre is probably my favorite player on the team.
