I would like to think of this game as a passing of the starting pitchers’ torch, but our young phenom has a long way to go before he’s considered within Greg Maddux’s realm of existence. The Phillies are looking to secure a winning April with a victory tonight and are riding the hot bats of Chase Utley and Pat Burrell. Shane Victorino has been activated for tonight’s game, but he’s not starting. Does that mean Jayson Werth is your everyday center fielder?
Phillies: Cole Hamels (2-3), 2.75 ERA
Padres: Greg Maddux (2-1), 3.66 ERA
Gametime: 7:05 p.m.

Your gamenight beer: Well, no one quite brews beers like monks. Therefore when playing the Padres of San Diego, it’s only natural to go with an authentic beer made by Trappist monks from Belgium. The most notable (not necessarily best) would have to be Chimay with its many varieties. What better to nosh on than some fine cheese from the same region. Op uw gezondheid!
