Philadelphia Phillies (26-29) vs. Milwaukee Brewers (20-33)

TIME: 4:05, Citizens Bank Park

TV: Comcast SportsNet

Weather: 91, scattered clouds

Media: Twitter and Facebook

The Phillies will look to avoid their third straight loss, and Tyler Cloyd will look to rebound from his worst outing of the season, in which he allowed six runs on nine hits and lasted just 2 1/3 innings against Boston. His location absolutely has to be spot on today against a tough offensive team. Offense is Milwaukee’s strong point, not to mention another bat is all of the sudden in the mix for the Crew, as Jonathan Lucroy has heated up and is coming off a monster night last night where he went 5-for-5 with two homers and four RBI.

The Brewers, who have had starting pitching problems all year will send the right-hander Wily Peralta to the mound, who is the owner of a 6.35 ERA. No current Phillies player has ever had an at bat against Peralta, and the righty has allowed at least four runs in each of his last four starts for Milwaukee.

Red-hot Domonic Brown will be in the lineup for the Phillies looking to continue his out-of-this world power surge that has him sitting atop the N.L. in homers with 15. He will be batting third for the first time this year, as Jimmy Rollins will not be playing today due to soreness after fouling several pitches off his foot yesterday. Here is how the rest of the lineup looks:

Lineup: Revere CF, Hernandez 2B, Brown LF, Howard 1B, D. Young RF, Frandsen SS, Kratz C, Galvis 3B, Cloyd P

bagpipers-scotch-ale-posterGameday Beer: Fegley’s Brewworks Bagpiper’s Scotch Ale

Brewed locally in the Lehigh Valley, perhaps this malty, smoky ale will bring former IronPig, and 2012 International League Pitcher of the Year some succes today with the big club. This ale, which is brewed with a bit of scotch, features some caramel, roasted barley and earthy tones, and at 8.5% ABV, if the Phillies do have a bad game you might not even remember it.

      3 at bats and no one on base for him..he will be back at 6 when Rollins, Young and Utley are playing..terrible lineup today..

    Yes, but unfortunately Delmon Young is still in the lineup and in RF.

    Delmon Young has cost the Phillies 3 runs today with his defense or lack thereof. The Phillies really have to use someone else in right field and restrict Young’s duties to
    pinch-hitting.

    The Phillies have to ditch Delmon Young and they have to ditch Ben Revere. I can’t explain how he hit .290 last year but he hasn’t shown me for 5 minutes he can handle major league pitcthng. Ground out…ground out….ground out …..ground out…..ground out…looks like a pitcher at the plate.

      Funny..same thing was being said about Brown the last few years…someone needs to get Revere on the off days and stop all of his hand movement before he swings..he should be closer to the plate..taking pitches and a threat to bunt or slash the ball past a drawn in 3rd baseman..

      What did you think wheh he hit .312 with a .361 OBP in May?

      His ground ball rate fell from 76.7% in April to 54.8% in May.
      His line drive rate increased from 11.0% in April to 32.3% in May.

        I don’t have a problem with ground balls..as a matter of fact if he could learn to hit them to the left of shortstop he would those out for hits..

        Ok, but surely line drives are better than grounders.

        Revere has a career .229 average and .467 OPS on grounders
        .146 average and.445 OPS on fly balls
        .683 average and 1.476 OPS on line drives

        It was nice, but I honestly do not thin he will replicate it more than twice.

    Somebody within the organization needs to address the fact that the Phillies flat out stink.

    The game is not even over and we have left 18 men on base. Good Christ!

        G7,
        Are you as mystified as I am by what you are watching?

         
  • Avatar of "Big Ed" Delahanty

    Delmon Young, along with his crappy bat and pi$$-poor defense, needs to take a trip of the falls of Niagra. C’mon Phils! Let’s win this!

        Mini Mart up with a .181 avg..you can’t script this any worse!!

    Why not have Mayberry pinch run for JRoll? Nah. That makes sense. Instead put in Kendrick. Jesus!

     
    • Posts: 0 G7

      Seriously..

       
      • Posts: 0 G7

        Chollie saved Mayberry for the at bat that never happened…brutal!

         
    • Posts: 0 hk

      I believe Mayberry played 1B in the top of the 9th. He was in the on-deck circle.

       
      • Posts: 0 G7

        Yes..you are correct..so Martinez got to hit before Mayberry.

    The Phillies are run by idiots. Managed by idiots. And the game is played by idiots. It’s kind of hard to win that way.

    Everybody has a part in today’s travesty. A horrible game from top to bottom.

      Why limit it to today’s travesty. The idiocy is responsible for the disappointment that is this season so far. When is enough enough? Ruben, Charlie, Delmon and Mini-Mart should all be ex-Phillies before tomorrow’s first pitch.

        You’re right. But today’s game was just the embodiment of all the screw-ups.

    missed Revere’s last ground out. Was it a 2 hopper or a 3 hopper?

     
    • Posts: 0 G7

      He got the bunt down..good thing Segura didn’t cover 2nd or Kendrick would of been thrown out…wth. Is it with pinch running pitchers in crucial situations that Chollie hasn’t figured out..

      Wow..there was 3 hours well spent..

    Aaaarrrggghhh! Man, Hernandez’s double would have sealed the win! Dammit, KK! Man, these guys are frustrating to watch. Sorry to be so negative, but we should be winning against a struggling Brew Crew.

     
    • Posts: 0 schmenkman

      Kk was dumb, but he was safe. Also, we don’t know that Hernandez still hits a double if there’s a runner on 2nd.

       
      • Avatar of "Big Ed" Delahanty

        I agree. What we do know for certain is that Mini-mart, who was batting next, was the automatic out, making the blown call/ Kendrick not paying attention pick off that much more frustratin to watch knowing Mini, the harbinger of killing rallies and innings was up. So, if Hernandez had singled and KK was held at third, it still would have been for naught.
