Gameday: Diamondbacks at Phillies (53-46)

CardinalsArizona Diamondbacks Philadelphia Phillies (52-46)

Rodrigo Lopez, RHP (5-9, 4.58 ERA) vs. Cole Hamels, LHP (3-6, 6.03 ERA)

Time: 7:05, Citizens Bank Park
Weather: Partly Cloudy, 84
TV: CSN
Twitter: @PhilliesNation

Jimmy Rollins will miss tonight’s game, and possibly a few more, as he deals with some swelling after fouling a ball off his back foot. Charlie Manuel indicated that Rollins is day-to-day, but they may give him more time to heal since he’s in pain. We’ll keep an eye on this.

As for the starters, Cole Hamels will look to continue his brilliant pitching tonight against Arizona. He’ll look to give the Phils their 6th consecutive victory, and at a perfect time, too, as they creep up on the division leading Braves. Hamels has given up one earned run in his last three starts (22 2/3 innings). Against Arizona, Hamels is 2-1 with a 3.38 ERA in four starts, but allowed six runs in six innings of a 7-4 loss at Arizona on April 2

Rodrigo Lopez is the hurler for the D-Backs, someone you all should be familiar with. Not only did he pitch for the Phils last season, but he was blasted by them back in April for six runs in six innings. The Snakes won that game 8-6.

Charlie Manuel on the playoff run: “I haven’t even mentioned the Wild Card, that’s not in my thinking at all right now.” Go for that division!

LINEUP: Victorino CF, Polanco 2B, Ibanez LF, Howard 1B, Werth RF, Dobbs 3B, Ruiz C, Valdez SS, Hamels P.

Your Gameday Beer: Dock Street Summer Session

Had it last night and was pleasantly surprised. It was one of the smoothest beers i’ve had in quite a while and finished beautifully with hints of lemon and ginger. It’s pale and looks like a Blue Moon, but tastes waaaay better. You can check it out at Dock Street Brewery, located at 50th and Baltimore in West Philadelphia. I wouldn’t wander through that area too often, since it’s the ghetto, but I would trek through it for a beer this good. Get on it. -By Pat

Go Phillies!

    why does this post say Cole is 3-6 with a 6.03 era?

  2. Buster Olney

    July 27, 2010 at 5:59 pm

    The Phillies might get Roy Oswalt for Shane Victorino and Jayson Werth.

    July 27, 2010 at 6:39 pm

    The Diamondbacks are my 2nd favorite team and I often watch them on my MLB extra innings package.

    Considering I can see them a lot, if the Phils dont take 2 of 3, they truly blow.

  12. Manny

    July 27, 2010 at 6:40 pm

    CMON KING COLE! LETS DO THIS!

  13. Manny

    Also, it’d be nice if the Nats trade Dunn.. if they do, we won’t have to face him this weekend! Ha!

    manny,

    If Jimmy is out against anyone it’s good it’s the Dbacks when Cole and Roy are pitching. Them deep bone bruises really hurt.

    The bottom of the lineup needs to step it up

  32. "PHILLYBOY"

  33. Manny

    July 27, 2010 at 8:01 pm

    For the record, the guy who posted as “manny” isn’t me.

    Cole looking strong today again, despite the 1st inning where he limited the damage.

  34. psujoe

    Don’t trade Werth Trade that idiot Victorino! Almost caught stealing then next thing you know he makes a Little League mistake.

    If Victorino had brains he might be a great player.

  48. miked63

    July 27, 2010 at 8:13 pm

    whats up phillyboy ? ——— f##kin victorino , remember a couple games ago when i was talking about how much he gets on my nerves lately ? I played up to college ball and his low baseball IQ makes me nuts. He makes alot of mistakes on bases and is very undisciplined at the plate.

  49. "PHILLYBOY"

    July 27, 2010 at 8:14 pm

    VIC GOT GOT IN A RUN DOWN THAT HE HAD NO REASON TO BE IN……

  51. jt

    July 27, 2010 at 8:14 pm

    Victorino is a great fielder,but he does dumb stuff when it comes to hitting and base running…

  52. Manny

    July 27, 2010 at 8:15 pm

  58. Jeff

    July 27, 2010 at 8:17 pm

    We got our run back with a walk. how do you walk a batter with the bases loaded. throw it over baby and let him earn it. great at bat. come on exxon.

  59. miked63

    July 27, 2010 at 8:17 pm

    i mentioned plate disipline above concerning victorino , the way this guy is struglin right now they have to work him , make him throw strikes

  60. Jeff

    July 27, 2010 at 8:18 pm

    Can we get a band wagon together on the trade Victorino ticket.

    He belongs in PIttsburg

  63. Brooks

    July 27, 2010 at 8:22 pm

    With the junk Lopez has going, this game should be out of hand by the 6th (I hope).

    July 27, 2010 at 8:25 pm

    Hamels is still stewing about that brilliant base running by Victorino

  67. Brooks

    July 27, 2010 at 8:25 pm

    A ton of pitches again for Cole early on – he’ll be way over 70 by the end of the 4th

  68. bostonkate

    July 27, 2010 at 8:27 pm

    *sigh* this is going to be a long game.

    Do this Phils! The D’s are a terrible team, easily beatable. Make it happen.

  69. MikeB.

    July 27, 2010 at 8:27 pm

    Those are the things about Victorino, as posted by others above, that make Victorino a better trade candidate than Werth. Mental errors-poor decisions on the base paths and undisciplined at the plate. Phils would miss his speed and defensive play in centerfield but…

  70. miked63

    July 27, 2010 at 8:28 pm

    a dinger and 3 walks by cole already , cmon cole we need u to pitch like the last couple outings , shit ! now a double ! ———— yo philly i got to get some positive carma goin 4 cole , maybe i’ll try a shot of teqilla !

    TO MR. RUIN TOMORROW JR.

    Is it me, or are we reaching a time in the season when every strikeout like that just feels huge?

  80. miked63

    July 27, 2010 at 8:34 pm

    man that changeup 4 ball 3 was close ! strike 3 ! man that was close , if he walked in another run he could have lost it right there. This game could be 10 to 10 right now with all the ducks that have been on the pond !

  81. "PHILLYBOY"

    July 27, 2010 at 8:35 pm

    WE ARE LUCKY ITS ONLY 2-2

  82. Brooks

    July 27, 2010 at 8:35 pm

    2 hit batsmen, 3 walks yet his velocity is up to 95/96.

    Settle Hollywood, settle – over 80 pitches in just 4 complete good grief.

  83. "PHILLYBOY"

    July 27, 2010 at 8:36 pm

  84. robnewjersey

    July 27, 2010 at 8:37 pm

    Ok, Manuel — If Shane doesnt hit an f’in home rum next at bat,take him. Show the team that you dont what that kindda sh_t.

    I know they like Herndon, but when you’ve been trailing all year you need to keep a guy like figgy. 6 innings 1 run so far for the stores.

  137. miked63

    July 27, 2010 at 9:12 pm

    this games gonna end up being an eleven to ten score or something / better hang on for the ride/ hey brooks i think you jinxed HERNDON / is that all we have for long relief ? RAJ should go after bullpen help if thats the case / go get 2 bullpen arms / but who ? theres probably no one out there / oh shit ! the big man with an error / bases loaded no outs WTF !

    Rule 5 question: since Herndon must be on the roster the whole season, barring injury Herndon would have to be on the playoff roster?

  146. Andrew

    No win tonight for Cole. He can never catch a break. Herndon on the hook for the loss now.

    if you think the Phils have pen problems. The D backs pen is 100 times worse.Tthey dont even have a closer at all. Qualls blew that with his 9 ERA. I guess its guiterez in a save situation.

    I’m back just to say a few things:

    Our 3-4-5 hitters have been great tonight!

    Baez went 1-2-3. Wow.

    If Shane hits the DL because of that injury, you GOT to call up Dom Brown. (And completely forget about trading Werth!) Trying to see the positives here, guys/

  205. Andrew

    July 27, 2010 at 9:48 pm

    Hip or groin. Was running after a fly ball and hurt himself. Not even running full speed.

  206. Andrew

    July 27, 2010 at 9:49 pm

    Can Brown play CF?
    Werth is now the CF

    Andrew: I might be wrong on this one, but wasn’t Werth a CF when we started playing with us? I’d be totally OK with him playing center.

    Hopefully the injury is just day-to-day and nothing too bad…

    Let’s just win this one. Get 3.5 behind the Braves (WHAT!!) and see how things unfold.

  212. GWFightinsFan

    July 27, 2010 at 9:53 pm

    Here’s a thought, trade-wise, How about Happ, Gose, Cosart, JC Ramirez and Rizzotti to the Marlins for Nolasco and Leo Nunez?

  213. Psujoe

    July 27, 2010 at 9:54 pm

    I think the phils take the division, but as a mathematician I want all bases covered. I don’t see the mets as a factor so if the can help eliminate the cards then so be it.

  225. riccaboni

    July 27, 2010 at 9:58 pm

    GWFan: That package probably would get Nolasco, but at this point, out upper minors cabinet is bare and that would wipe out what scouts are calling the strongest lower minors system in the league.

  226. riccaboni

    Via Zolecki on Twitter: Raul Ibanez is hitting .375 (18-for-48) with 4 doubles, 1 homer and 9 RBIs in his last 14 games.

  230. Andrew

    July 27, 2010 at 10:02 pm

    in 08 he started 26 games in CF none in 07 and 6 times in 09

    To me CF is like C 2b and SS
    Defense up the middle is so important.
    I want a CF who is elite like Shane. I dont thnk Werth is elite in center. But lets hope we dont have to find out.

    Could be fine with Werth in center a few weeks. and like you say maybe we will see Brown. I wouldnt mind that at all.

  231. GWFightinsFan

    July 27, 2010 at 10:02 pm

    Riccaboni-We can always get more prospects, odds are none of them will amount to a hill of beans anyhow…I think despite their struggles, this team still has an outside shot to make a run at another World Series title….this trade would shore up our rotation and fix our bullpen for not only this season, but the next few seasons.

    Just as a bit of a reality check. Caught Colorado at a perfect time. End of a road trip. And this D Backs team is the worst in the NL by alot.
    But you have to take advantage. Braves are feeling the heat too.

  236. Psujoe

    July 27, 2010 at 10:06 pm

    Brooks,
    Don’t be. Cody can’t hit a curve. DBacks pen is horriffic, but great hit by Cody on a mistake.

    Oswalt watching thinking “why the F wouldn’t I play for the Phillies”. Leave 2012 as an option and you can be part of the party.

  237. Brooks

    July 27, 2010 at 10:06 pm

    It’s happening Mike!

    Andrew, Werth is an athlete – I think his arm is just about as good as Vic – we would not lose much at all in CF. Nothing to worry about.

    Why does Wheeler say every game that in this park its a 4 run lead is a save situation. Every single game with a 4 run lead he does the speil. About how its not official but it is one etc etc

    Howard is getting good over there that at first. Just needs to learn how to throw to second. Thats the last issue defensively.

    When its goign good Wheeler is OK. But when the team is pissing you off he is really tough to take sometimes. He is a pretty easy target though so he serves that purpose. Try listening to Darren Sutton and Mark Grace doing the D backs. They are awesome.

    @wxdavid —- i saw that too —— i think most of those quotes attatched to oswalt are bull —– after this week he’ll be askin to come here if he really wants to win. Question is , do we want him? HAAP is younger and has a better era than oswalt the last couple years.

    Unless they just skip him today (pretending as if he did pitch) and let him pitch as scheduled… MRI showed inflammation.

    With the exception of Dobbs and Valdez and a few menatl errors … these guys are starting to look like National Leagues Champs again. Great job by Ron Madsen too!!! 🙂 I still think we need another good starting pitcher.

    Sometimes I wonder what the hell game Wheels, Sarge, and McCarthy are watching. It’s more and more obvious with each passing day that Harry the K will never be replaced, not by any of these clowns. Maybe Franzke could do a decent job of that.

    Okay, Cole pitched and the offense didn’t lose the game. Let’s get Hollywood himself a win next time.

    Baez needs to get a few more 1,2,3 outings before I want him anywhere near Lidge’s spot.

    At this rate, September 1st comes and we’ll be solidly in first place. And I will laugh at all the band-wagoners coming back after leaving this team for dead at the end of June.

    “Ron Madsen”? Really?

    Baez for Lidge? I would argue Baez has more control issues than Lidge. Both need to figure out the lives and not when wins are on the line.

    Good game today. When the wheels came close to coming off, they really held it together and played like the team we’re used to seeing in that situation. Good win. Keep ’em coming.

    wxdavid; don’t you remember how them Braves trolls gloated when Atlanta took 2 out of 3 games last time at CBP and then the Phils preceded to lose 3 games at New York?

    Atlanta plays at Cincinnati this weekend while Phils are at Nationals. Golden opportunity to make up more ground next 5 games.

    This Arizona team does not have very good pitching but as an offensive team, have quite a bit of sting. Cannot be taken lightly. Glad that Halladay is pitching tomorrow but if Kendrick goes on Thursday, everything is up in the air.

    I dont know if any lead would be “solid” enough going into September.
    The Phils play Eastern rivals the last 25 games of the season… anything can happen but for sure, if the offense is on, the Phils have to be favored.

    I’m still waiting to hear more about Shane’s injury and who will be replacing him. My only hope is that Brown will be called up – Brown, Werth & Ibanez in the OF. No doubt, Cholly will try Ben, Gload and maybe even Dobbs but the thought of Brown being inserted in this lineup is giving me the goosebumps!

    Lets play it out for a sec – if Rollins is out –

    Poly leading off – 2b
    Brown – rf
    Ibanez – lf
    Howard – 1b
    Werth – cf
    Ruiz – c
    Ransom – 3b
    Valdez – ss

    Where would you hit Brown?

    I would bat Brown 6th in the batting order. Was going to say 5th, but do not want 4 left handed hitters in a row. Less pressure for Brown lower in the batting order starting out and gives the batting order more potential punch at the bottom.

    Phuture Phils reports on Twitter Dom Brown and Vance Worley not in clubhouse post game tonight. They’re driving a rumor that both are coming up to the big club. Assuming Brown takes Vic’s spot via the DL, who is Worley replacing?

    Hmm…

    Guess they wont trade Werth now with Victorino hurt. I like the guy met him in person…Just been making a lot of mental mistakes and discipline has been lacking…..Guess he be out on at least 15 Day DL….
