Gamenight: Rockies (20-30) At Phillies (28-24) – Phillies Nation

Gamenight: Rockies (20-30) At Phillies (28-24)

For the first time since they eliminated the Phillies in the 2007 NLDS, the Rockies are in town. But this is a different team than the one that brutalized the Phils in October. This time there’s no Matt Holliday (DL), no Clint Barmes (DL), no Troy Tulowitzki (DL), no Brad Hawpe (DL). The Rockies are 20-30, carrying a team ERA of 4.56 (14th, NL) and are scoring just 4.20 runs per game (13th, NL). The Phils, meanwhile, carry a team ERA of 4.02 (6th, NL) and are scoring 5 runs per game (3rd, NL).

As it’s Memorial Day, it’s only fitting the Phils trot the Majors’ greatest veteran player, Jamie Moyer, out onto the hill. The Rockies respond with Jorge De La Rosa. He had a horrible first start this season (9 ER against Los Angeles), but has since settled with a somewhat respectable last three starts.

Phillies: Jamie Moyer (4-3) 4.37 ERA
Rockies: Jorge De La Rosa (1-2) 7.78 ERA

Gametime: 7:05 p.m. EST
Weather: 77 degrees, partly cloudy
Lineup: Rollins, Victorino, Utley, Howard, Burrell, Feliz, Coste, Taguchi, Moyer

Your gameday beer: Happy Memorial Day! It’s gorgeous outside, the barbecues will be pumping, the beer will be flowing, the Phils will be playing. It’s great to be alive, so today, remember the troops and kick-start your summer with Liberty Ale from Anchor Steam Brewery. A very good beer, it represents everything our great country is about. What to eat? Get out of here — it better be on the grill. A burger, a dog, a steak, whatever. Have it, enjoy it, and happy Memorial Day.

Go Phillies!

    Rollins has only struck out 10 times this season. WOW.

    When did Moyer become our strike out specialist?

    And danny’s j-roll stat shows how much Jimmy continues to improve and work despite the success he already has and why he’s much more important than a power guy like Howard

    with games like this can the Phils score a 1000 runs in one year?

    the rockies should be embarressed. they could only score 4 runs on moyer, got whiffed by him 6 times, AND got shelled for all of these runs. they really must be struggling.

    I think those owners are a disgrace. they remind me of the pirates owners. they just say, hey, everyone knows we can spend more but were not going to and youre going to have to make do with whatever we shell out but youre still going to buy tickets because we built this ballpark. and no we dont want to spend money on more pitching.

    makes me sick, they still need more pitching.

    good job shelling that slop colorado pitching tonight though
