YankeesNew York Yankees (2-1) at Philadelphia Phillies (1-2)

CC Sabathia, LHP, vs. Joe Blanton, RHP

Time: 8:20 p.m at Citizens Bank Park
Weather: Partly Cloudy, 56 degrees
TV: FOX
Twitter: Phillies Nation

The Phillies must even up the series after dropping last night’s game.  Joe Blanton and the Phillies need to do whatever it takes to avoid falling to a 3-1 deficit.

Instead of throwing out Cliff Lee on three day’s of rest, Charlie Manuel opted to go with Blanton.  Blanton last started in the National League Championship series and he allowed three earned runs in six innings.  Blanton has struggled mightily against the Yankees throughout his career, but has not faced them since last season.  The Phillies are in desperate need of a solid outing from Blanton, especially with Cole Hamels’ poor performance last night.

For the second time this postseason, CC Sabathia will pitch on short rest.  The 280-pound left-hander threw 113 pitches in game one of the World Series.  Sabathia pitched well, but was out-dueled by Lee and could not find a way to get Chase Utley out.

The offense is a big reason why the Phillies are in the World Series, but they are also a big reason why they are trailing 2-1.  They have faced great pitching, but the Phillies are more than capable of putting up crooked numbers.  Other than Utley in game one, the only players who are doing well are Jayson Werth (.400) and Carlos Ruiz (.333).

Tröegs Hopback Amber AleYour Gameday Beer – Tröegs Hopback Amber Ale
I’m surprised we didn’t recommended this beer during our summer of Amber Ales, but it is appropriate tonight as the Phillies need to hop back on the winning train. As advertised, this brew is loaded with citrusy hops, which accompany a pine, grass-like scent. The mouthfeel is smooth, thick and dry but full of flavor sensations. If you like the flavors of Pale Ales but not the bitterness, then this beer is worth a go. Have it with some grilled salmon seasoned with lemon. – By Brian

GO PHILLIES!

    BRONX BABY, you are a complete moron. Its funny. Whats it feel like to be a loser and an idiot? Please tell us. “I DOUBT WITH 100% CERTAINTY, THAT YOU LIVE IN A NICER AREA THAN ME. FURTHER, I’M 150% SURE MY PROPERTY IS WORTH 10 TIMES MORE THAN YOURS.” NY is a Cesspool, Im sure you paid more for your property, but that just means your the moron who paid for it, because I doubt you “property is worth more” in fact you can say with 150% certainty that your property is worth 10 times more? Really? That would make your “property” worth several MILLION moron. I can take trash talking moron, its classless moronic childish idiotic crap from idiots that is annoying.

    Laying down like dogs huh? Do you mean winning in game 5 IDIOT. Do you mean for the first time in 5 years the WS is going to game 6 BECAUSE THE PHILLIES DIDNT “LAY DOWN” I have never really hated the Yankees, but I am quickly changing my opinion. Mets fans are sore losers, but I can accept sore losers, but sore winners? NOTHING WORSE. I am starting to think Yankees fans are worse then Mets fans, and THAT is an ALL TIME LOW.
