Washington Nationals (94-61) vs. Philadelphia Phillies (78-77)

Gio Gonzalez (20-8, 2.84) vs. Tyler Cloyd (2-1, 3.86)

Time: 7:05 PM, Citizens Bank Park
TV: CSN
Weather: Partly Cloudy, 60
Media: Twitter and Facebook

Hey look, it’s Gio Gonzalez! The former Phillies farmhand is now a frontrunner to be named NL CY Young winner. He’ll go for his 21st win of the season against an organization he once was a part of. The lefty has stiff competition in R.A. Dickey, Craig Kimbrel, and Aroldis Chapman. However, getting to 22 wins on the season certainly would stand out.

Tyler Cloyd gets the ball in the final game at Citizens Bank Park this season. We’re so used to playoff baseball, so this kind of sneaks up on you. Regardless, I hope there is a solid turnout tonight for what has been a tough season. But that’s where the real, honest fans come into play and pack the place knowing that there will not be baseball until next season.

The Nationals magic number is down to four after last night’s win, so it’s nice that they will not win the division on CBP turf.

Your Gameday BeerPumking by Southern Tier

Gotta get all these pumpkin beers in now, since there is no October baseball on the horizon for this team. Pumking is one of the better pumpkin beers on the market. It’ll kick you between the legs, too, with an 8.6 ABV. There is a real pumpkin presence in it and there is even a hint of graham cracker, which I love. Enjoy this one with a nice rare steak and potatoes.  – Pat Gallen

GO PHILLIES!

    Not much else you can do with crap Tracey. Strike Zimmerman out and a run scores, great.
