Atlanta Braves (86-65) vs. Philadelphia Phillies (77-74)

Mike Minor (9-10, 4.31) vs. Roy Halladay (10-7, 4.03)

Time: 4:05 PM, Citizens Bank Park
Clear, 85

What a huge win for the Fightin’ Phils on Friday night.  They have to continue the momentum all weekend long.

This hasn’t been Roy Halladay’s best season, struggling with injuries and consistency for most of the season.  Regardless of his performance this year, it’s always good to have a guy like Doc pitch in a big game like this.  Even with his struggles, Phillies fans still have faith in Roy Halladay.

Ryan Howard has a reputation for being Mr. September, but he hasn’t quite lived up to that name this year.  But could he slowly be starting to heat up?  The Big Piece has 3 home runs in as many games.

Beck'sYour Gameday Beer – Beck’s
Beck’s, a classic German Brewery, provides tonight’s beer like a present wrapped neatly in tin foil. It’s certainly not the best German beer but it is popular and widely available. Like similar mass-produced pilsners it has that traditional rice and corn beer taste, though not has strong as a Bud or Miller product. It of course goes well with Wiener Schnitzel otherwise known as veal cutlets. – By Brian

Go Phillies!

    Ladies and gentlemen, the wild card race is now officially over. I want to thank the Phillies for making this month more exciting that I ever thought would be possible back on Labor Day weekend, but I have to finally throw in the towel. This month HAS shown me that next season is in good hands, but we just started our run too little, too late. And, by the way, if a miracle happens and I’m wrong, I will gladly dance in the streets while being pelted with Phanatic dolls! See you in April!

      I must add that next season is in good hands if everyone stays healthy and we don’t start out with two huge holes in the lineup for the first three months!!
