Philadelphia Phillies (68-79) vs. Washington Nationals (78-69)

Time: 7:05 ET, Nationals Park
TV:

It was already a foregone conclusion, but the Phillies were officially eliminated from playoff contention today when the Reds won. Obviously, that means nothing, because this team has been expecting elimination since shortly after the All Star Break.

Cole Hamels will get the ball tonight for the Phillies, and Gio Gonzalez will start for the Nats.

Lineup: Hernandez CF, Rollins SS, Utley 2B, Ruiz C, Ruf 1B, Asche 3B, Galvis LF, Mayberry RF, Hamels P

download (2)Gameday Beer: Orval Trappist Ale

I’ve said it before, monks know how to brew beers and this Belgian Pale Ale is no exception. First it hits you with a apple/pear scent then a complex taste of citrus, caramel, and earthy yeast – all in a creamy buttery consistency. Wow. I hear it goes well with Thai food, but this is certainly one you can drink alone. - By Brian

Your gameday beer: Anchor Steam Liberty Ale

A special top-fermenting ale yeast is used during fermentation and is responsible for many of Liberty Ale’s subtle flavors and characteristics. Carbonation is produced by an entirely natural process called “bunging,” which produces champagne-like bubbles. Enjoy with some steaks on the grill for today’s game.

Gameday: Phillies (67-78) vs Padres (66-78)

Posted by Jonathan Nisula, Thu, September 12, 2013 06:23 PM Comments: 12

Philadelphia Phillies (67-78) vs. San Diego Padres (66-78)

Roy Halladay (3-4, 7.19 ) vs. Tyson Ross (3-7, 2.79 )

Time: 7:05 ET, Citizens Bank Park
TV: 
CSN
Weather: Cloudy, stormy
Media: Twitter and Facebook

Roy Halladay is coming off a start in which he only allowed one run over six innings, but had some serious command issues. He’ll look to fix those issues tonight, as long as the weather holds up. There’s storms in the area, as a cold front moves in, and we could be looking at a delay of some sort tonight.

Opposing him will be some guy named Tyson Ross. I’ve honestly never heard of him before, but he’s got some pretty good numbers this year. He’s made 12 starts this year, but has appeared in 31 games. He has an ERA of 2.79 in 103.1 IP. He’s thrown 2 2/3 scoreless innings against the Phillies this year in relief.

Lineup: Hernandez CF, Rollins SS, Utley 2B, Ruiz C, Ruf RF, Asche 3B, Frandsen 1B, Galvis LF, Halladay P

Gameday Beer: Shock Top Belgian White

The Phillies aren’t making many fans happy lately, so why not make up for it with a tasty beer to go with tonight’s game? Shock Top Belgian White is a great choice if you’re looking for something smooth and delicious. It’s sure to put a smile on your face. – Jon

Gameday: Phillies (66-78) vs. Padres (66-77)

Posted by Pat Gallen, Wed, September 11, 2013 06:26 PM Comments: 15

Philadelphia Phillies (66-78) vs. San Diego Padres (66-77)

Cliff Lee (12-6, 3.01) vs. Eric Stults (8-13, 4.07)

Time: 7:05 ET, Citizens Bank Park
TV:
CSN
Weather: Hazy/Warm, 91
Media: Twitter and Facebook

Cliff Lee’s quiet dominance continues, and with another solid outing, he can find his ERA in the two’s. According to my boy Corey Seidman, it would be the first time in the two’s since July. He’ll be dealing with heat and humidity; hittin’ weather as Charlie used to call it.

Chase Utley gets a night off with the lefty Eric Stults on the hill. Ryne Sandberg has mentioned that he’d like to get his veterans time off down the stretch.

Ryne Sandberg also told us today how he got his name. He was named after Ryne Duren, a Yankees pitcher in the 50′s. Did you know that?

Lineup: Hernandez CF, Rollins SS, Frandsen 1B, Ruiz C, Ruf LF, Asche 3B, Galvis 2B, Mayberry RF, Lee P

GAMEDAY BEER: Sly Fox Octoberfest

Had this Sly Fox version of Octoberfest last night and it was tasty. One thing that turns me off about the October brews is the spice. Sly Fox held off on that and made it drinkable.  -PG

Gameday: Phillies (66-77) vs. Padres (65-77)

Posted by Pat Gallen, Tue, September 10, 2013 06:43 PM Comments: 16

 Philadelphia Phillies (66-77) vs. San Diego Padres (65-77)

Tyler Cloyd (2-3, 2.57) vs. Andrew Cashner (8-8, 3.45)

Time: 7:05 ET, Citizens Bank Park
TV:
CSN
Weather: Hazy/Warm, 88
Media: Twitter and Facebook

Cameron Rupp will get his first major league start. Got a chance to watch this kid in BP and he can hit a heavy ball. If he can prove to be a an asset for the remainder of the season, the Phillies could look to him to be part of their catching rotation in 2014.

Ryne Sandberg is giving him the start to pair him with Tyler Cloyd, since the two are familiar with each other.

Saw Dom Brown shagging flies in the outfield and taking BP today. He didn’t look to be limping on that sore right Achilles tendon. Sandberg said he hopes to have him back soon.

GAMEDAY BEER: Lagunitas Lucky 13′

I’ve yet to have a bad beer from Lagunitas. The Cali-based brewer sets the bar high with Lucky 13, what they call a super-hoppy-mondo-ale. Not the biggest fan of overly-hoppy drinks, but this one will certainly do. Cook up some brats on the grill, because the weather won’t stay this way much longer. -PG

Gameday: Braves (85-56) at Phillies (65-77)

Paul Maholm (10-10, 4.41) vs. Cole Hamels (6-13, 3.50)

The Phillies are going for the sweep!  You heard that right.  The Phillies are in position to sweep the first place team in the National League East.  I wouldn’t say the Phillies are playing spoiler since it is inevitable that the Braves will clinch a playoff spot, but it certainty will push back their champagne celebration.

Cole Hamels is on the hill today.  With the way he has been pitching lately, it’s almost hard to believe that he had an ERA well over 4.00 at one point during this season.  Hamels left in the seventh inning during his last start because “he didn’t feel right.”  It’s said not to be an issue, but today will prove if there is anything affecting him.

Gameday: Braves (85-55) vs. Phillies (64-77)

bmgndhhvp8d9dllfh3vnf8g5uAtlanta Braves (85-55) vs. Philadelphia Phillies (64-77) 

Alex Wood (3-3, 3.15) vs. Kyle Kendrick (10-12, 4.51)

Time: 7:05 ET, Citizens Bank Park
TV: 
Comcast SportsNet
Weather: 75, mostly sunny
Media: Twitter and Facebook

Cliff Lee pitched a gem last night, and Cody Asche provided the big hit to propel the Phillies to a 2-1 victory.

Tonight, Kyle Kendrick will be opposed by Alex Wood, who is coming off a rough start.  Wood, just 22 years of age, was drafted out of the University of Georgia in the second round of last year’s draft.  He dominated his way through the minor leagues, posting a 1.74 ERA in 24 starts on all levels.  Since his callup in May, he has faced the Phillies a few times, including one start, and fared pretty well.  It will be interesting to see how the rookie rebounds after an awful start against Miami, where he allowed seven runs  in less than three innings.

Lineup: Hernandez CF, Frandsen 1B, Utley 2B, Ruiz C, Ruf LF, Asche 3B, Galvis SS, Mayberry RF, Kendrick P.

Gameday: Braves (85-54) vs. Phillies (63-77)

Posted by Amanda Orr, Fri, September 06, 2013 06:43 PM Comments: 16

bmgndhhvp8d9dllfh3vnf8g5uAtlanta Braves (85-54) vs. Philadelphia Phillies (63-77) 

Cliff Lee (11-6, 3.09) vs Mike Minor (13-5, 3.08)

Time: 7:05 ET, Citizens Bank Park
TV: 
Comcast SportsNet
Weather: 72, clear
Media: Twitter and Facebook

With 84 wins, the Atlanta Braves have the best record in baseball.  First place is safe for the Braves, as they have a significant 14-game lead over the Washington Nationals.  Their magic number to clinch the National League East is set at ten, which is the lowest in the majors.  Atlanta is getting ready for a postseason push, but first they have seven games left against Philadelphia.

September Phillies baseball might not be as meaningful as it has been in recent years, but it gives us a chance to see what the younger players can bring.  Fans also get to enjoy Cliff Lee, as he rarely disappoints.  Lee hit a little bit of a rough patch in the middle of the summer, but he has improved over his last five starts, posting a 2.91 ERA.

(Stats as of 2:00 PM Thursday)

Gameday: Phillies (63-76) vs Nationals (70-68)

Philadelphia Phillies (63-76) at Washinton Nationals (70-68)

Roy Halladay (3-4, 7.94) v Jordan Zimmerman (15-8, 3.33)

TIME: 7:05 ET, Citizens Bank Park
TV: 
Comcast SportsNet
Weather: 70′s, Clear
Media: Twitter and Facebook

To tell you the truth, I’m pretty nervous about Roy Halladay’s start tonight. He’s coming off a game against the Cubs where he gave up five runs in as many innings, but it could’ve been much worse. I fear that it might be worse tonight.

Opposing him will be Jordan Zimmerman, and he’s been pretty good this year. He’s sporting a 15-8 record with a 3.33 ERA.

Lineup: Hernandez CF, Rollins SS, Utley 2B, Ruiz C, Ruf 1B, Asche 3B, Mayberry LF, Bernadina RF, Halladay P

Philadelphia Phillies (63-75)
at Washinton Nationals (69-68)

Ethan Martin vs. Gio Gonzalez

TIME: 7:05 ET, Citizens Bank Park
TV:
Comcast SportsNet
Weather: 78, Clear
Media: Twitter and Facebook

Tonight’s game in two sentences: All you have to do is look at the lineup for tonight’s game. It’s like the Iron Pigs got on a bus and all came down together.

Lineup: Hernandez 2B, Galvis SS, Frandsen 1B, Ruiz C, Ruf LF, Asche 3B, Mayberry RF, Martinez CF, Martin P

 

Gameday Beer: Bud Ice

If you’re going to watch that lineup, you need to find one of the most powerful aphrodesiacs available to man. That would be Bud Ice. Hell, I’m not even sure if they still make it, but if they do, go get it. It does NOT go down smooth, and does NOT taste good, but who cares. -PG
