It’s a possible playoff preview at Chase Field tonight, as the Phils and Diamondbacks open a four-game set. It’s arguable the Phils and D-Backs are the top two teams in the National League this season; both teams feature strong pitching and a good offense. While the D-Backs are a little younger, the Phils carry a very experienced team.
Tonight it’s very much youth vs. experience, as the D-Backs throw rookie Max Scherzer out there against the Phils’ Jamie Moyer.
Phillies: Jamie Moyer (2-2), 5.11 ERA
Diamondbacks: Max Scherzer (0-0) 0.00 ERA
Gametime: 9:40 p.m.
Weather: 82 degrees, sunny
Your gamenight beer: It’s the first really hot weather the Phils will enounter in 2008, so you need a nice, cold beer to keep you chilled. And since it’s Cinco de Mayo, I mean, let’s be real: You need a Corona. Eat some nachos, hombre.
