Gamenight: Phillies (10-10) At Rockies (9-10)

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 — 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
Lineup: Taguchi/Werth/Utley/Howard/Burrell/Feliz/Ruiz/Bruntlett/Myers

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?

Go Phillies!

    Miller Lite, Coors Light, Bud Light – they’re all horrible.

    God, Chase is unreal.

  4. Paul

    April 22, 2008 at 9:18 pm

    Utley is so locked in right now.

  5. Rob Cowie

    April 22, 2008 at 9:24 pm

    Well this sucks

  6. Clare

    April 22, 2008 at 9:26 pm

    Well no it doesn’t. Geeez. And someone control their cheer-for-everything-ness.

  7. Tim Malcolm

    April 22, 2008 at 9:43 pm

    They should’ve got more out of that one. You get gifts, you run with them.

  8. Mike T.

    April 22, 2008 at 9:44 pm

    The Phils seem to be hitting the ball a lot better – not many hits, but a lot of hard hit balls.

  9. Tim Malcolm

    April 22, 2008 at 9:46 pm

    It takes the Phillies 15 minutes to score a run; takes the Rockies 2 minutes. That’s the difference of clutch hitting.

  10. Brian Michael

    April 22, 2008 at 9:48 pm

    Burrell should not have dove for that ball and rather cut it off instead. It would kept Hawpe to a double.

  11. Clare

    April 22, 2008 at 9:49 pm

    I hate this park!

  12. Paul

    April 22, 2008 at 9:50 pm

    Phillies hitters need to pretend that the bases are always empty.

  13. Tim Malcolm

    April 22, 2008 at 9:51 pm

    Yeah, the Phils have to take better advantage of this park.

  14. Clare

    April 22, 2008 at 9:51 pm

    We will, don’t worry!

  15. Fran

    April 22, 2008 at 9:57 pm

    Is this game blacked out in the Reading area????

  16. Rob Cowie

    April 22, 2008 at 10:00 pm

    Jesus. I want to go home.

  17. Paul

    April 22, 2008 at 10:01 pm

    Sounds like Myers isn’t fooling anyone, are all these balls getting hit that hard? I’m listening on XM…

  18. Mike W.

    April 22, 2008 at 10:04 pm

    FLYERS WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW

  19. Fran

    April 22, 2008 at 10:05 pm

    FLYERSSSSSSSSSS ROUND 2

  20. Tim Malcolm

    April 22, 2008 at 10:06 pm

    Rob, it’s a one-run game. Calm down, baby. But how bout them Flyers?

  21. chris m

    April 22, 2008 at 10:12 pm

    Flyers!!!!!!!! The great ovejkin sucks…anybody watching on versus and listening to those homer annoucers? i coodnt take them anymore

  22. Tim Malcolm

    April 22, 2008 at 10:17 pm

    Ovechkin certainly doesn’t suck, but I’m glad it’s over — I couldn’t take much more of the love-fest for him.

  23. Rob Cowie

    April 22, 2008 at 10:17 pm

    We’ll right now I’m emotionally attached to the outcome of this game.

  24. Tim Malcolm

    April 22, 2008 at 10:23 pm

    I think they’ll at least tie it back up. But that’s me and my optimism.

  25. Geoff

    April 22, 2008 at 10:26 pm

    Yes, Jayson Werth smoked that ball outta there. What a great win by the flyers, redeeming themselves in a tough game 7.

  26. Tim Malcolm

    April 22, 2008 at 10:26 pm

    Told ya, Rob, I told ya!

  27. Clare

    April 22, 2008 at 10:33 pm

    Ah, sometimes I like having Jayson in better than Shane, don’t tell my friend though, she’s obsessed with Shane.

  28. Rob Cowie

    April 22, 2008 at 10:36 pm

    The girl who ran on the field was delicious and sexy.

  29. chris m

    April 22, 2008 at 10:36 pm

    uhhhhhhhhhhhh!

  30. Geoff

    April 22, 2008 at 10:38 pm

    Your starting pitcher CANNOT give up 6 runs. he hung that right in the happy zone too

  31. Tim Malcolm

    April 22, 2008 at 10:38 pm

    Kept Brett in way too long.

  32. Rob Cowie

    April 22, 2008 at 10:38 pm

    Unbelievable

  33. Geoff

    April 22, 2008 at 10:38 pm

    especially the opening day starter..good grab by utley to end the inning

  34. Tim Malcolm

    April 22, 2008 at 10:40 pm

    You guys did get photos of the streaker, correct?

  35. Geoff

    April 22, 2008 at 10:41 pm

    oh no wait i was wrong he walked somebody before that. my bad. garret atkins, come on man you cant give up a homerun to that guy.

  36. chris m

    April 22, 2008 at 10:45 pm

    please no madson

  37. chris m

    April 22, 2008 at 10:46 pm

    i want pics of that streaker too

  38. chris m

    April 22, 2008 at 10:50 pm

    geoff swings at more balls then any mlb player…even howard

  39. chris m

    April 22, 2008 at 10:52 pm

    everytime he pinch hit he swings at ball 4 with a full count…im so irritated right now

  40. Geoff

    April 22, 2008 at 10:53 pm

    Jenkins just took 3 really bad upward golf swing rips that looked terrible

  41. Tim Malcolm

    April 22, 2008 at 10:53 pm

    Jenkins is worthless right now. Over and over.

  42. Geoff

    April 22, 2008 at 10:55 pm

    yeah he basically hasnt done anything all year. contributed to a few wins but not much else. no consistence, no clutch hitting. not enough HR not enough RBI

  43. Geoff

    April 22, 2008 at 10:56 pm

    nice, steady, easy swing by dobbs gets the run in.

  44. chris m

    April 22, 2008 at 10:57 pm

    jenkins cant pinch hit…he needs at bats to see the ball all right

  45. Tim Malcolm

    April 22, 2008 at 10:57 pm

    Boy, Dobbs is a hell of a pinch hitter.

  46. chris m

    April 22, 2008 at 10:57 pm

    that puts chase up in the ninth

  47. Tim Malcolm

    April 22, 2008 at 11:00 pm

    It’ll be Taguchi, Werth, Utley. I’d think Coste comes in to catch and Harman takes over at shortstop.

  48. Geoff

    April 22, 2008 at 11:00 pm

    jenkins is .254 on the year with ONE homerun and 3 rbi. thats even worse than i thought, thats terrible. totally horrendous

  49. Paul

    April 22, 2008 at 11:05 pm

    Felix in a short… odd.

  50. Greg

    April 22, 2008 at 11:05 pm

    Can they pinch-hit Taguchi with Hamels in the 9th? Once Snelling is back they should So to the minors.

  51. chris m

    April 22, 2008 at 11:05 pm

    wow he looked so safe but that slow mo surprised me

  52. Clare

    April 22, 2008 at 11:05 pm

    Shit, that was a nice call.

    The last replay showed he really was out.

  53. Paul

    April 22, 2008 at 11:05 pm

    Ooops, I meant Feliz.

  54. Geoff

    April 22, 2008 at 11:09 pm

    wow, madson actually got some people out wihtout giving up a run

  55. Geoff

    April 22, 2008 at 11:10 pm

    he needs to be the type of guy that gets k’s though. he seems to pitch to contact more often than not. that could just mean that he isnt good though

  56. chris m

    April 22, 2008 at 11:12 pm

    good call grege

  57. chris m

    April 22, 2008 at 11:18 pm

    chase! chase! chase! and taguchi with the running….another good call greg

  58. Brian Michael

    April 22, 2008 at 11:19 pm

    Oh please Ryan, do something for crying out loud.

  59. Mike W.

    April 22, 2008 at 11:19 pm

    wont get a chance to

  60. Greg

    April 22, 2008 at 11:19 pm

    great by Utley…c’mon Howard, I still have faith.

  61. Paul

    April 22, 2008 at 11:19 pm

    It’s going to be up to Burrell, fly ball at least please!

  62. Brian Michael

    April 22, 2008 at 11:20 pm

    IBB is good enough

  63. Greg

    April 22, 2008 at 11:20 pm

    oh, I almost forgot other teams still fear him even under the Mendoza line

  64. Clare

    April 22, 2008 at 11:23 pm

    I just ruined both my vocal cords and hands!

  72. Paul

  73. chris m

    April 22, 2008 at 11:26 pm

    feliz and jenkins are terrible situational hitter.we needed that run without lidge…please no gordon

  74. Geoff

    April 22, 2008 at 11:26 pm

    hes gonna try to get away with using lidge 3 nights in a row

  75. Tim Malcolm

    April 22, 2008 at 11:27 pm

    This is freakin’ awesome. A clear-cut machine.

  76. Greg

    April 22, 2008 at 11:28 pm

    this site is faster than MLB radio

  77. chris m

    April 22, 2008 at 11:33 pm

    its good to see a lot of comments a couple games in a row

  78. Mike W.

    April 22, 2008 at 11:34 pm

    Way premature, I know, but this might be the best closer we’ve ever had.

  79. Fran

    April 22, 2008 at 11:35 pm

    pat the bat MVP

    remember fran has been saying it since the 1st game

  80. Geoff

    April 22, 2008 at 11:35 pm

    when lidge is on hes very good. that slider is fierce

  81. Paul

    April 22, 2008 at 11:35 pm

    3 wins in a row! And over .500! Right on Phils, nice to see Lidge work quickly and dominantly in the 9th too.

  82. Clare

    April 22, 2008 at 11:36 pm

    Lidge is naaaaaaaaaaaasty. Like holy shit.

    Anyway, that win was golden!

  83. Tim Malcolm

    April 22, 2008 at 11:36 pm

    What a road trip for you guys. Party up before that red eye, kids. Have fun.

  84. erik

    April 22, 2008 at 11:36 pm

    mets, marlins, and braves lose… phils win, very productive tuesday

  85. Mike T.

    April 22, 2008 at 11:36 pm

    The only thing more impressive than Lidge’s slider… is his back door slider. Ugh, nasty stuff.

  86. Tim Malcolm

    April 22, 2008 at 11:37 pm

    Mike, very immature. But hey, he looked flat-out dominant. That slider/fastball combo is freakin’ wicked.

  87. Brian Michael

    April 22, 2008 at 11:38 pm

    Sweep Revenge!

  88. Clare

    April 22, 2008 at 11:43 pm

    Probably will be headline.

  89. Fran

    April 22, 2008 at 11:44 pm

    I love how were taking advantage of the late comeback oppertunties

  90. Greg

    April 22, 2008 at 11:45 pm

    let me take the time to extend my apologies to So Taguchi…
