Washington Nationals (77-49) at Philadelphia Phillies (60-67)

Jordan Zimmermann (9-7, 2.54) vs. Cliff Lee (2-7, 3.78)

Time: 1:35, Citizens Bank Park
Weather: Scattered Thunderstorms, 81
Media: Twitter and Facebook

The Phillies are going for the sweep today! Being swept by the Phillies would be a major disappointment for the Nationals. The Phillies are just gonna keep plaingy spoiler.

In his last start, Jordan Zimmermann blamed his poor outing against the Braves on being too excited. For the Nationals sake, they hope that he isn’t too ecstatic to face the third place Phillies. Zimmermann is actually having a great season, but is overshadowed by phenom Stephen Strasburg. Zimmermann was actually the National’s best pitching prospect before Strasburg came along. He didn’t do too great in limited experience from 2009-10, but has pitched very good over the last two seasons.

It’s been a long time since Cliff Lee earned the victory at Citizens Bank Park. He has lost a win in almost every way possible, so let’s home he can get the W and the Phillies can sweep the Nats.

Woodchuck Dry and DarkYour Gameday Beer – Amstel
No, not Amstel Light…Amstel, it’s big brother. Named after the river that flows through Amsterdam, Amstel tastes like a mix between Heineken and Bud. It has the complexity of Heineken (not to mention it’s owned by them) without the bite – definitely a macrobrew. Around Holland you can pick up a can of Amstel in vending machines which is most convenient when you don’t know the language. I’d recommend a fancy hot dog with all your preferred toppings today. – By Brian

    (FYI, I think Sarge is referring to “plaingy spoiler,” and yes, you do need to learn how to use spell check. He is possibly also referring to “has pitched very good” and “let’s home”. Seriously, I know this post was late, but can’t you get a second set of eyes on them?)
