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!

    I realize Brown is young and still not getting alot at bats. does he worry anyone or does he just need time?

     
  • Posts: 0 ChuckS

    D brown just needs some time and ABs

     
  • Posts: 0 matt

    torre is like that he has trust, sometimes to much, it wouldnt have been a small victory for broxton,
