The Phillies couldn’t answer Aaron Harang Wednesday, but the lefties will have plenty of chances against Micah Owings.
Left-handers are hitting .350 against Owings, lifetime, so the Phillies are pouring them out: Rollins/Utley/Ibanez/Howard/Stairs/Victorino/Dobbs. Then Ruiz and Blanton, but who’s counting?
Of course, Howard is hitting .143 against Owings, but that’s another story.
Your gameday beer: Hooray for Witbiers! This is St. Bernardus Witbier, from one of my favorite breweries in the world. Crisp and slightly citrusy, it tastes heavier than you’d think. Enjoy this with some barbecue wings.
