The Phillies remained in first place in the NL East with a huge walk-off win last night. Pat Burrell continued his torrid start with a two-run, game-winning home run off Brian Wilson to give the Phils a 6-5 win over the Giants.
Tonight Brett Myers is on the hill. He said he’s been long tossing and studying game film. Good. He needs to go seven tonight – anything less would be uncivilized.
By the way, go Flyers!
Phillies: Brett Myers (2-2), 5.11 ERA

Your gamenight beer: I won’t do this often, but tonight I am. I’m at my brother’s housewarming/mom’s birthday/niece’s communion/friend’s new baby/my reclaim my life party in northeast Philly (Ashton and Willits if anyone wants to stop by). We’re grilling, watching the Phils and Flyers and drinking kegs of Rolling Rock. That is our beer tonight. Drink it. Have a burger with it – you’ll need it.
