After a pretty crummy loss, the Phils will attempt to even up the four-game set with the Reds when Cole Hamels takes the hill today.
Yesterday the offense couldn’t come up big, and the supposed ace, Brett Myers, struggled for a second consecutive start. He needs to check-ity check himself before he wreck-ity wrecks himself.
Phillies: Cole Hamels (0-1), 1.13 ERA
Reds: Bronson Arroyo (0-0), 3.60 ERA
Gametime: 12:35 p.m.
Weather: 69 degrees, partly cloudy
Your gameday beer: It’s noon on a Monday, but a drink won’t hurt, right? Considering the only time I usually drink at noon on a Monday is if Monday is St. Patrick’s Day, I’m going with the “Irish” red today: Killian’s Irish Red lager. It’s not really Irish â€” it’s more of a watered down microbrew version of a good European red lager. Have one with some corned beef, a strong meat that’ll keep the mediocrity of Killian’s at bay.
