Gamenight: Nationals (44-81) At Phillies (66-58)

Back home, and they need these bad. The Phillies open a three-game set against the Nationals. The Phils bring Joe Blanton to the mound, while the Nats bring the great Jason Bergmann out to play. A sweep is practically necessary and the only thing accepted.

Tale Of Two Bergs: Bergmann allowed five runs in 5.1 innings in his first start against the Phillies, then allowed no runs in 7 innings in his second start. He’s been much better in the second half of the season, but got lit up (6 ER, 3 IP) against the Mets Wednesday.

Jeer?: Tonight is Jimmy Rollins’ return home since saying we fans hate them when they lose. Will the fans harass?

Cheer?: But tonight is “Campaign Cheer” night. We Should Be GM’s want everyone to cheer everything, no matter what. Will the fans abide?

Phillies: Joe Blanton (6-12) 4.79 ERA
Nationals: Jason Bergmann (2-9) 4.51 ERA

Gametime: 7:05 p.m. EST

Your gamenight beer: Tonight we go Irish, and we go with Beamish Irish Stout, an excellent stout with little alcohol content but a bit of a chocolate taste. It’s good with anything spicy or rich, so have some Spanish rice and chicken, then wash it down with some chocolate mousse.

Go Phillies!
