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

A little bit of offense went a long way for the Phillies yesterday, as they beat the Mets, 5-4. The bullpen held their ground, winning a battle where Chase Utley hit two home runs and Pedro Feliz knocked the game-winner.

Now the Phillies head to Denver, where they meet the team that eliminated them from their first playoff berth since 1993. They’ll face lefty Mark Redman; against lefties, the Phillies are hitting just .231. Kyle Kendrick, off his best start of the season, goes for the good guys.

Phillies: Kyle Kendrick (1-2), 4.40 ERA
Rockies: Mark Redman (2-1), 4.60 ERA

Gametime: 8:35 p.m.
Weather: 56 degrees, partly cloudy
Lineup: Taguchi/Werth/Utley/Howard/Burrell/Feliz/Ruiz/Bruntlett/Kendrick

Your gamenight beer: I’m not recommending Coors, no, that would be cruel. Instead, we’re going with Hazed & Infused by the Boulder Beer Co., a nice pale ale with some citrus taste hidden inside. Drink it with some salmon, caught from the lakes of Colorado, if you should.

Go Phillies!

    Sitting in Pat’s in LoDo. Packed with phils fans. Hopefully the philly enthusiasm will translate into a W tonight.

    chris.I: I have Comcast – I just noticed that it’s not listed at all. It doesn’t look like we’re getting the game tonight. Not sure why, I’m a little pissed off.

    Yea I know..Hopefully its just a mistake with the cable?? If I’m correct it did the same thing last year too. Guess we’ll find out in about 15 min. If it’s not aired, I expect Rob and the rest of the ”P.N” would be good spectators LoL. But this def blows for sure

    I actually prefer to watch Howard strike out 4 times, rather than read it about it on here.

  7. chris.I

    April 21, 2008 at 8:26 pm

    HaHa..Yea! I know right? I’d say 2 K’s, a DP, and a pop up to the pitcher instead LoL

    phillies are on cn8

    I got it on MLB.tv, guys, so I’ll give you all updates as well, though mine won’t be as drunken and ridiculous as the boys at Coors.

  10. Mike T.

    April 21, 2008 at 8:32 pm

    Hey Chris, as Erik said – it is on CN8.

  11. Steve

    April 21, 2008 at 8:42 pm

    Utley is freakin awesome

  12. Tim Malcolm

    April 21, 2008 at 8:43 pm

    I think I can hear you guys in the crowd. Third base line?

  13. Tim Malcolm

    April 21, 2008 at 9:03 pm

    Well hello, Alanna Rizzo.

  14. Tim Malcolm

    April 21, 2008 at 9:09 pm

    Ugh. Torrealba? Come on, Kyle.

  15. Clare

    April 21, 2008 at 9:10 pm

    Yeah, I heard someone yell “Come on, Pat!” when he was up. And is it just me or are these fans cheering for everything??

  16. Mike T.

    April 21, 2008 at 9:20 pm

    I already stopped watching the game – I can’t watch our offense struggle anymore. I’m switching to Flyers/Caps.

  17. chris.I

    April 21, 2008 at 9:33 pm

    Yea I know..Comcast is a bunch of retards. Glad we all got to watch it. We’ll be alright though, Its only the 3rd inning.

  18. Gavin

    April 21, 2008 at 9:33 pm

    These are professional hitters. WTF? Why are they so undisciplined up there. Damn!!!!!!!

  19. Brian Michael

    April 21, 2008 at 9:37 pm

    We’re between LF and 3rd base, 6th row…if Holliday tries for any foul balls, you’ll see us interfering.

  20. Rob Cowie

    April 21, 2008 at 9:38 pm

    Its a cold night with minimal action. Beside the torreabla bomb and utley turning that 463, its been pretty mellow. Not a lot of spectators in the crowd but the phils fans are here in force

  21. Tim Malcolm

    April 21, 2008 at 9:42 pm

    Yeah Machine!

  22. Mike T.

    April 21, 2008 at 9:44 pm

    Pat needs to bat 4th until Howard gets hot (if he gets hot).

    Watching Aaron Heilman collapse against the Cubbies is great – looks like the Mets are going to drop game 1 in Chicago.

  23. Mike T.

    April 21, 2008 at 9:53 pm

    Ugh, nasty slide piece – when did KK develop that one?

  24. Tim Malcolm

    April 21, 2008 at 9:54 pm

    Pheeeew. Nice job, Kyle.

  25. Brian Michael

    April 21, 2008 at 10:11 pm

    it’s a lot harder to talk smack to Rockies fans when KK is serving up bombs. the wind’s blowing in also.

  26. Mike W.

    April 21, 2008 at 10:16 pm

    WOW!! J WERTH!

  27. Tim Malcolm

    April 21, 2008 at 10:16 pm

    Oh baby! Inside the parker!

  28. Brian Michael

    April 21, 2008 at 10:17 pm

    WOW!!!!!!!

  29. Clare

    April 21, 2008 at 10:18 pm

    Holy fuck Chase can’t be human!

  30. Tim Malcolm

    April 21, 2008 at 10:18 pm

    HOLY SHIT! UTLEY!

  31. Mike W.

    April 21, 2008 at 10:19 pm

    utley is LOCKED IN. he is gonna be MVP.

  32. Tim Malcolm

    April 21, 2008 at 10:21 pm

    That’s six in five games and ties a franchise record with five straight games with a homer.

  33. erik

    April 21, 2008 at 10:24 pm

    seems like the offense is coming alive a little bit…howard has yet to k tonight..impressive

  34. Clare

    April 21, 2008 at 10:25 pm

    Are you just repeating what the announcers say? =p

  35. Mike W.

    April 21, 2008 at 10:41 pm

    Taylor Bucholz! The lower merion product.

  36. Mike T.

    April 21, 2008 at 10:43 pm

    I guess I’m not as easily impressed as everyone else here. Chase is a huge talent, but I overlook him because the rest of our lineup stinks.

  37. Brian Michael

    April 21, 2008 at 10:49 pm

    That was quite a sophisticated double-switch for Charlie.

  38. Fran

    April 21, 2008 at 11:08 pm

    I dont understand why Charlie takes out Pat when hes on 1st for a pinch runner. Takeout howard on second and let pat finish the game. Cant anyone on that bench play 1st?? It dosnt make sense. If we make a late run i want pat at the plate not Ryan. Anyone else agree with that???

  39. Mike T.

    April 21, 2008 at 11:09 pm

    The only way we’re scoring is with a walk.

  40. Mike T.

    April 21, 2008 at 11:10 pm

    Nevermind.

  41. Tim Malcolm

    April 21, 2008 at 11:11 pm

    CHOOCH!!!

  42. Tim

    April 21, 2008 at 11:14 pm

    oh shit, we just get the lead and manuel decides to fuck it up by bringing in Gordon

  43. Tim Malcolm

    April 21, 2008 at 11:14 pm

    Fran, I agree. Dobbs could come in and play first. Why sub Burrell there when the guy ahead of him is worse on the paths?

  44. Tim

    April 21, 2008 at 11:16 pm

    To Fran, even more than that, do you want TJ Bohn at the plate?

  45. Tim

    April 21, 2008 at 11:17 pm

    and off of that, we bring in Bohn for defense?

  46. Mike W.

    April 21, 2008 at 11:17 pm

    apparently we dont want him in left.

  47. Mike T.

    April 21, 2008 at 11:18 pm

    I can’t watch this guy pitch.

  48. Mike W.

    April 21, 2008 at 11:22 pm

    Um, he looked pretty damn crisp there. Even basically got 4 outs (thank bohn).

  49. Tim Malcolm

    April 21, 2008 at 11:22 pm

    Ooh, Flash! Looking damn good out there.

  50. Paul

    April 21, 2008 at 11:23 pm

    Why do people keep bagging on Gordon? Besides the blow up on opening day, he’s pitched pretty well. In fact, he just did a good job getting “4” outs tonight thanks to Bohn botching a fly ball.

  51. Geoff

    April 21, 2008 at 11:23 pm

    Yes, Gordon struck out 2 and retired the side. Nice to see him in form tonight

  52. Geoff

    April 21, 2008 at 11:24 pm

    TJ Bohn, come on man, I can make that catch. seriously

  53. Tim Malcolm

    April 21, 2008 at 11:24 pm

    I guess it’s one of Manuel’s rules that Burrell must leave late in a game. But then again, like I wrote last week, when Burrell is pulled late, more than likely the Phils win.

  54. Mike T.

    April 21, 2008 at 11:26 pm

    I bag everyone except Chase Utley, Jimmy Rollins, Cole Hamels and JC Romero.

    Everyone else is fair game.

  55. Geoff

    April 21, 2008 at 11:28 pm

    I cant stand this rockies team. It all started when they got into the playoffs last year because the umpire blatantly screwed up the call that allowed holliday to score. then a team that should have never been in the playoffs somehow got to the world series.

  56. Geoff

    April 21, 2008 at 11:28 pm

    then they got smoked by the red sox, exposing them as a fraud

  57. Tim

    April 21, 2008 at 11:29 pm

    JC Romero???
    That’s just a little too much love for half a season.

    And come on, if you’re gonna go Romero, you gotta throw in Coste as well.

  58. Mike T.

    April 21, 2008 at 11:29 pm

    Geoff, that is some pretty unreasonable reasoning. However, I’ll jump on your side — I hate the Rockies!

  59. Mike W.

    April 21, 2008 at 11:31 pm

    J WERTH! clutch.

    re: the rockies vs red sox. that would a been a VERY different series if the rockies didn’t have an entire spring training b/w the LCS and WS.

  60. Tim Malcolm

    April 21, 2008 at 11:31 pm

    Nice insurance. Keep it going.

  61. Mike T.

    April 21, 2008 at 11:32 pm

    Tim: The love also comes from what he did for us last season – 36.3 IP, 1.24 ERA.

  62. Geoff

    April 21, 2008 at 11:33 pm

    Yeah but Bostons pitching was too good. beckett was not really hittable during that stretch. Yeah i hate the rockies, which makes me be unreasonable at..HOWARD again! another punch out for howard.

  63. Mike T.

    April 21, 2008 at 11:34 pm

    Can we even get a sac fly? Doubt it.

  64. Tim

    April 21, 2008 at 11:35 pm

    Mike: I feel that, i’m just wary of relievers in this league, sometimes they get good and then go real bad real fast

    But i definitely understand and love JC for what he did last year.

  65. Geoff

    April 21, 2008 at 11:37 pm

    Yes! that 28 year old journeyman ripped a nice 2rbi double

  66. Mike W.

    April 21, 2008 at 11:37 pm

    TJ!!!!!!

    who do we go with in the 9th now?

  67. Tim Malcolm

    April 21, 2008 at 11:37 pm

    Super Bohn Bohn!!!

  68. Fran

    April 21, 2008 at 11:39 pm

    I hope they dont put in lidge save him, possibly rudy?

  69. Geoff

    April 21, 2008 at 11:40 pm

    they already used seanez, they pretty much have to use lidge here

  70. Paul

    April 21, 2008 at 11:40 pm

    Bohn’s first ML hit was a good one. More than makes up for the error…

  71. Fran

    April 21, 2008 at 11:40 pm

    well they put in lidge 2 nights in a row. What happens if were close tomorrow night?

  72. Clare

    April 21, 2008 at 11:43 pm

    Wow, how annoying is that chant?

  73. Geoff

    April 21, 2008 at 11:43 pm

    tomorrow night theyll break out tom gordon for the save if they have to. or maybe hell think out of the box and let romero save if it comes to it. i dont want to use lidge 3 nights in a row in april.

  74. Mike W.

    April 21, 2008 at 11:43 pm

    he shouldve pitched flash 2 IP i think.

    now lidge is out tomorrow.

  75. Geoff

    April 21, 2008 at 11:43 pm

    by the way, lidge has a WICKED slider

  76. erik

    April 21, 2008 at 11:48 pm

    great all around team win, it was nice to see them come from behind, good stuff

  77. Tim Malcolm

    April 21, 2008 at 11:48 pm

    I don’t mind using Lidge again; the Rox announcers make a good point: “In Coors Field, four-run lead, you still bring in your closer.”

  78. Geoff

    April 21, 2008 at 11:48 pm

    13 hits, 9 runs! nice win tonight and really nice to see the bats awaken a little more
