Philadelphia Phillies (73-58) at Los Angeles Dodgers (68-64)

Kyle Kendrick, RHP (8-7, 4.64 ERA) vs. Carlos Monasterios, RHP (3-4, 3.54 ERA)

Time: 10:10 p.m at Dodger Stadium
TV: Comcast SportsNet
Weather: Mostly Sunny, 67
Twitter: @philliesnation

Not all is lost after that ugly one-hitter was tossed by Hiroki Kiroda last night. The Phillies are still 3-1 on the road trip and they’ll have an opportunity to beat up on a pitcher that has never faced the team as a starter. That, and they also still hold on to a 1 1/2 game advantage in the Wild Card.

By the way, Monasterios is a former Phillies farm hand; he pitched in three levels of the minor league system over four seasons before leaving after last season. He finished up with Double-A Reading in ’09 before heading west.

Good lucks go to Kyle Kendrick tonight. He’ll likely have no offense backing him, per usual, and he likes to give up about four runs over six innings. ┬áThat means a win at this juncture will be hard to come by. ┬áHere’s hoping the Phils somehow, someway, score five runs. Show us something boys, you’re making us just a little nervous.

For whatever reason, I like to think of red ales as fall beers. This offering from Lagunitas comes in a 22-ounce bottle and certainly fits into that autumn category. Its rich amber flavor is thickened by apples and syrup while also containing a strong hops body. It has a traditional dry finish – common in IPAs. Have it with some pork chops and applesauce. – By Brian

GO PHILLIES!

    Jay, I don’t want Padres to lose anymore. Don’t want them joining the Wild Card battle, it’s easier with less teams.

    Great play Jimmy

    Kingman would hit 201
    hope howard never does that

    Not even with the shift, brother. You know Im a big Howard apologist, it’s only a matter of time for the big fella. Nobody in baseball produces more than him.

    I’ll bet a lot of these negadelphians who were bashing him without mercy this week will be loading up his bandwagon now. Pathetic. Short memories around here. Real short. Some of you guys, should be ashamed of yourselves.

    Best record in NL is happening

    ryan howard had more breaking balls thrown to him last year than any other hit, 49 percent more than any left hander in mlb, think they figured him out, ???

    my heart stopped a little i thought Ryan was holding his thigh

     
  • Posts: 0 Andrew from Waldorf

    when he doesnt swing at that pitch in the dirt he is the best hitter in the majors. When he does swing at the balls in the dirt he is about the worst.

    Andrew,

    Big difference between Howard and Hamels is that Howard has a 4+ year track record of huge production despite having bad weeks, whereas Hamels was awful all season and had a bad attitude. He quit. I don’t like quitters and bad attitudes. Looks like he’s finally grown up. It’s made a big difference in his career.

    He was holding his Cup in his thigh? LOL

    Hamels body language was so bad last year
    with the run support hes gotten this year hes been a man about it
    hes won me over for good

    last year he was killing me

    how did howard hit 58 homers?, i think we just always think he will come though, the guy is human, he helped more times then hurt us

    Figured him out? Wouldn’t that mean they stopped his production?

    That .279, 45HR, 141RBI was real pedestrian, eh?

    Pfffffft.

    I hate Rod Barajas

    Guess Krod was wrong about the Mets the team to beat in the NL. Boy the Mets are just bad. I think that park hurt Wright. Beltran is finished and will never be the same. Who knows if steroids are the big thing with him. Reyes can still be exciting. Bay has been a huge dissapointment with that team. They have nobody else. There pitching is streaky. They do play us tough and the Braves kick there a s s.

    kk did that on purpose. now the db is in order.

    Howard would hit .600 without the shift. Think how many hard line drives he hits that are outs.

    too easy

    He carries the team when he’s on like nobody in MLB. He pushes 140+ runs across the plate when he’s healthy.

    ON A SIDE NOTE-CLIFF LEE HAS BEEN GETTING HAMMERED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

     
  • Posts: 0 Andrew from Waldorf

    they invented the shift for ted williams and he hit pretty good

    He hit against the shift very rarely
    did it clinch a pennant once though

     
  • Posts: 0 matt

    , his starts have been awesome,
    past 12 starts hamels have given up 23 runs, and the offense only scored more than 4 runs for him twice in that stretch

     
  • Posts: 0 Lefty

    Ted Williams arguably the best hitter ever. Missed all that time in the war, could have been better.

     
  • Posts: 0 bacardipr05

    Rod just kills us no matter who we have pitching….Just something personal he has against us….Perhaps a ball to the Ribs….

    KK 72 pitches, I don’t know.

    Biz all i am saying is in the world series thats all he saw, when he is in the zone, hes untouchable, but when he is slumping, he chases that pitch, pitches know it,

     
  • Posts: 0 Andrew from Waldorf

    6 years williams missed

    no ww2 no korean war
    and hes over 800 homers

    its a shame, but he did what he thought was right and important

    we need to just put a run on the board.

    Its a shame bonds has the homer record.
    I do actually think there should be an asterik or something done about it

    they say bonds was talking to Howard today to all you conspiracy theory lovers
