Yesterday the Phillies took game one against the Mets by getting beaten to a pulp physically. Hey, you take it any way you can.
Today, more bad news for the Mets: Orlando Hernandez had another MRI because of pain in his foot â€” the foot he originally injured. Jimmy Rollins sprained his ankle yesterday but will start tonight. (UPDATE: He was a late scratch and is not playing.) Mike Pelfrey gets his first start of 2008 for the Mets.
Phillies: Kyle Kendrick (1-0), 7.20 ERA
Mets: Mike Pelfrey (0-0), 0.00 ERA
Gametime: 7:10 p.m.
National TV: ESPN2
Weather: 53 degrees, mostly cloudy
Your gameday beer: They’re trying to throw a monkey wrench into their plans. Jimmy Rollins’ sprained ankle took the … legs … from under them yesterday, but the Phils still won. For that, grab a Monkey Wrench Strong Ale, an English strong ale that screams toffee. Because the only way to combat a monkey wrench is to down one yourself. What to eat with it? A heaping, hot bowl of beef barley works.
