Game 3 : National League Division Series
Phillies lead 2-0
Philadelphia Phillies at Milwaukee Brewers
Miller Park, Milwaukee
6:30 p.m. / 60, fair
Jamie Moyer (16-7, 3.71 ERA) vs. Dave Bush (9-10, 4.18 ERA)
The Phillies can move to the National League Championship Series with a win tonight against the Brewers. Stoked to a two-game lead, the Phils turn to veteran Jamie Moyer. The 45-year-old southpaw is the second 16-game winner over 45 in baseball history. In two starts against the Brewers, he totaled a 3.09 ERA.
Dave Bush, a Conestoga High graduate (it’s Conestoga vs. Souderton tonight), is an all-pitches right-hander who is either good, or not so good. The Phils make their fourth visit to Miller Park. They were 1-1 there earlier in the season.

Your Gamenight Beer
It’s a cool October evening, and it’s time to shut the door on the Brewers. Sip a Harvest Moon from the guys who give you Blue Moon. A spicy and robust fall tale, this will be fun to sip in bunches tonight, because it may get you tipsy by … hopefully … celebration time. Enjoy this with a large helping of nachos. Delicious stuff.
