Chicago Cubs (24-36) at Philadelphia Phillies (37-25)

Randy Wells (1-1, 5.74 ERA) vs. Kyle Kendrick (3-4, 3.78 ERA)

Time: 7:05, Citizens Bank Park
Weather: Sunny/Hot, 96
TV: Comcast SportsNet
Media: Twitter and Facebook

Jimmy Rollins returns. He’s back at the top, although he said the knee isn’t yet 100 percent, so don’t look for him to be stealing many bases this evening. Chase Utley also returns.

Otherwise, nothing newsworthy really happening today. We shift the attention to how ridiculously hot it is going to be, and how that might be a factor. Obviously, Kyle Kendrick has a short leash as it is, so with the temperatures near triple digits at gametime, he’ll have to manage. His delivery doesn’t appear to exert much energy, so that’s a good thing. Charlie Manuel said Kendrick could go 100 pitches tonight, he’s stretched out enough to go deep if he can. But that’s the question; can he?

Randy Wells shut the Phillies down last year at Wrigley (7 inn, 0 ER), but he’s nearing 6 in the ERA category this year. With “hittin’ weather” in the air, lets see if they can take advantage.

PHILLIES LINEUP:

Rollins SS, Polanco 3B, Utley 2B, Howard 1B, Victorino CF, Ibanez LF, Brown RF, Sardinha C, Kendrick P

Your Gameday Beer: Pacifico

Cerveza Pacifico Clara is the real name for this beer which was brewed by three German men in Mexico in 1900. In 1954 it was purchased by Modelo (you’ve heard of them, yes), which is now owned by Anheuser Busch. Seems like they own every beer. So I guess Pacifico is like the Bud of our neighbors to the south. I think it tastes much better. I think you like it, too. – By Pat

Go Phillies!

    Well, what are the odds that Herndon can pitch another scoreless?

    This is just amazing. First off our offense is the most pathetic offense in baseball. 3 runs off of one bat. Nothing else. Youl let this horrible team hang around. They are bad. Madson is not the great closer. Rather see Valdez up in that spot and win the game. Then pitch him. The team is just not very good. Utley looks like he has no clue. The play of the game of course was that stop at third. bases loaded.

    I feel like I’ve been raped; hopeless and violated. They have no right to take our support for granted. SHAME ON THEM.

    They scored in the 6th 8th 9th and 11th

    Phils had 1 hit

    I get very emotional about the old man.

    He doesnt deserve this

    Another lazy, sloppy night by the Phillies. they are hard to watch. A boring and disappointing team.

    Oh yeah, we stunk up the place because of the freaking rain delay according to the post game Kabuke theater (paid for by the Phillies and ultimately by us.. )
