Philadelphia Phillies (49-52) at St. Louis Cardinals (61-37)
Kyle Kendrick (9-6, 3.94) vs. Lance Lynn (11-5, 4.13)
Wednesday night was ugly for the Phillies. Very ugly as they were clobbered, 11-3. The Phillies will turn to Kyle Kendrick, who is coming off a rough start where he allowed six runs.
Lance Lynn has 11 wins on the season, but that may be because he leads the National League in run support. Lynn tends to get into jams, but manages to escape them. Lynn will allow baserunners, and it is up to the Phillies’ offense to capitalize with runners in scoring position.
Lineup: Rollins SS, Young 3B, Utley 2B, Young RF, Ruf 1B, Nix LF, Mayberry CF, Kratz C, Kendrick P.
Your Gameday Beer – Pabst Blue Ribbon
It just feels like a Pabst day. Don’t mistake it for a high-quality beer, but for a cheap case you can’t beat it. On their Wikipedia page it says, “Whether the brand actually won an award in 1893 is unclear.” My guess is, it didn’t. But enjoy it anyway, ice cold! – By Pat
