Tonight’s the night Cliff Lee will be making his much anticipated Phillies debut. He’ll also try to halt the Phillies two game skid.
The reigning American League Cy Young winner is having a terrific season with a 3.14 earned run average and 1.30 WHIP in 152 innings with the Tribe. He had a 7-9 record, but lacked run support. The Phillies failed to support their pitchers over the last two games. They’ve only scored two runs in last two games, very uncharacteristic for the Phillies.
Ryan Sadowski started his Major League career by throwing 13 consevutive scoreless innings. Since, he has allowed 13 earned runs in the last 11.1 innings he has pitched. However, he has pitched well at AT&T Park. His ERA at home is 1.50 in 12 innings.
Your Gameday Beer– Konigshoeven Blond Trappist Ale
Tonight’s beer kicks off our European tour and comes from the De Koningshoeven Brewery, a Dutch Trappist brewery. It is the only producer of Trappist beer outside of Belgium. Run inside an abbey, the monks get the water for the beer from five 200-metre deep wells on the grounds. La Trappe Blond is one of their many offerings. This Pale Ale is bitter and sweet like fruit candy, but less sweet by comparison to the more popular Leffe Blonde. – By Brian
