And on the fourth day, they try to get above .500. Again.
It’s the fifth time the Phillies will try and get above the mediocre mark; if our team’s trend says anything, it’s that they’ll lose tonight â€” but hey, that ain’t happening. Brett Myers is coming off his second-straight solid start while Colorado starter Jeff Francis has had one good start this season, and that was at Petco Park. Francis beat the Phils in game one of the 2007 NLDS.
The offense got going yesterday with some clutch hits; tonight they’ll try and rip off a few more en route to a two-game sweep in Denver. Phillies Nation is at the game.
Phillies: Brett Myers (2-1), 3.96 ERA
Rockies: Jeff Francis (0-2), 5.89 ERA
Gametime: 8:35 p.m.
Weather: 59 degrees, mostly sunny
Your gamenight beer: So our great public relations director, Rob Cowie, wanted me to recommend Miller Lite tonight. I’m happy to oblige. Here’s Rob’s recommendation: “Quite simply I hate Coors and its products. Even though Miller Lite isn’t a top-flight beer … it’s great for binge drinking and beer pong tournaments. It would also go great with a cheesesteak from either Frusco’s or Chink’s, Northeast Philly style.” What, Rob, no Steve’s Prince of Steaks?
