New York Mets (60-66) at Philadelphia Phillies (81-44)
Tonight, Cliff Lee and Dillon Gee
Oppose each other at CBP
We’ll see the opening game of three
The Mets will spend in Philly.
The lineup facing Dillon Gee
Will be without a starter or three
Instead, Exxon and Mayberry
Will start, if they are willing.
It matters not, for Hunter Pence
And his ilk ought to provide offense
Abundant for tonight’s starting arm…
One Cliff Lee–what a mensch!
Lineup: Victorino CF, Polanco 3B, Utley 2B, Howard 1B, Pence RF, Ibanez LF, Ruiz C, Valdez SS, Lee P
Your Gameday Beer: Pabst Blue Ribbon
