2010 Gameday

Gameday: Mets (75-79) at Phillies (93-62)

New York Mets (75-79) at Philadelphia Phillies (93-62)

Atlanta BravesPat Misch, LHP (0-4, 4.44 ERA) vs. Cole Hamels (12-10, 2.93 ERA)

Time: 1:35, Citizens Bank Park
Weather:
Cloudy, 68
TV: CSN
Follow Phillies Nation on Twitter

It comes down to this. Can they finish off the Braves in the NL East with a win at home, coupled with an Atlanta loss? The Braves play at 1:35 as well, in Washington, so as we’ve said all weekend, GO NATS!

Cole Hamels is in charge of taking this game for the Phillies and recently he’s been outstanding. He’ll need to be once again if the home crowd wants to witness history. If/when the Phils clinch, it will be the first time ever that they’ve won four straight division titles. Philadelphia haven’t seen a winner like this since the late 70’s and into the early 80’s, and what a treat it is

Everyone will be doing some scoreboard watching, all while football plays in the background on a Sunday afternoon. But keep it locked to Phillies baseball, this is an important one!

Today’s lineup: Victorino CF, Polanco 3B, Utley 2B, Howard 1B, Werth RF, Ibanez LF, Ruiz C, Valdez SS, Kendrick P

Your gameday beer: Harpoon Glacier Harvest Wet Hop

Victory LagerThe 20th installment of the Harpoon 100 Barrel Series has been brewed to celebrate the annual hop harvest. Harpoon Glacier Harvest Wet Hop beer is a pale ale made with fresh hops picked just hours before being tossed into the brew. Harpoon is a Boston area beer that has brewed since 1986. In that relatively short time, it’s become a fairly-well known beer in the Northeastern part of the U.S. Enjoy the beer, enjoy the win!

GO PHILLIES!

    Heh, where in Bucks, Chuck? I’m originally from there, until I moved to Florida.

  7. Kate

    September 26, 2010 at 1:40 pm

    Let’s go, Phils!

    Let’s go, Nats!

    I hope everyone who’s at Citizens Bank Park today takes a moment to just stop and take it all in. It’s mind-boggling to think that our boys are in the position they’re in right now.

    Cole is going to smoke these heartless scrubs.

  8. Kate

    September 26, 2010 at 1:41 pm

    It was raining here in the Northeast earlier, but not since at least eleven.

  10. Kate

    It’d be great to get Cole a win against the Mets. He hasn’t beaten them this year.

  11. JAY-AKA-PHILLYBOY

    UGH!

  17. Tracey

    OK, that could have been worse… now it’s time to score.

  18. Tracey

    “While footballs plays in the background” ???

    This is a football town. Despite a potential clinching game today, I’d say the Eagles will be front and center in most peoples eyes.

  23. Tracey

    September 26, 2010 at 2:17 pm

    CHOOCH!!!!

  24. Andrew from waldorf

    September 26, 2010 at 2:19 pm

    The NFL is like mcdonalds. Easy to eat and tastes good but you feel sick 2 hours later.
    America is a football nation because they play once a week and its easy to follow. You have to put in some effort to understand baseball.
    I would never even look at an NFL blog. I do play fantasy and watch the eagles though.

  33. Tracey

    September 26, 2010 at 2:32 pm

    Mets are beating the crap out of Hamels. He needs to settle down.

  34. Andrew from waldorf

    September 26, 2010 at 2:34 pm

    Nice play angel

    even if mets take 2 of 3 they are a terrible team

  35. jt

    September 26, 2010 at 2:34 pm

    the phillies offense has been getting cold even in the braves series they need to wake up now……………….

  36. Andrew from waldorf

    September 26, 2010 at 2:36 pm

    bad body language
    we got 09 cole today

    thats a bad sign
    you wonder whats wrong

  37. Tracey

    September 26, 2010 at 2:36 pm

    The fans are turning on Hamels…

  38. Tracey

    September 26, 2010 at 2:37 pm

    This is so weird… TV is way behind MLB At Bat…

  39. Tracey

    September 26, 2010 at 2:40 pm

    Aw crap…

  40. Andrew from waldorf

    September 26, 2010 at 2:41 pm

    The fans are turning on the ump not hamels

  41. Andrew from waldorf

    September 26, 2010 at 2:42 pm

    Cole got some bad luck today

  42. Tracey

    September 26, 2010 at 2:42 pm

    WTF???? But kudos to Chooch…

  43. Andrew from waldorf

    September 26, 2010 at 2:45 pm

    Reyes not running hard LOL
    gunned out at home

  44. Jeff

    September 26, 2010 at 2:46 pm

    game over. 2 of 3 from the mets. solid guys.

  45. Ken

    September 26, 2010 at 2:47 pm

    Andrew, with 2 outs I have no problem with a runner trying to score at home. The play where he stole third with no outs was bonehead. Never make the 1st or 3rd out at third.

  46. biz

    September 26, 2010 at 2:48 pm

    This Ump is giving Cole the business. Anyone know what qualifies as a strike today? Look at this and take note of the “balls” that are dead in the middle of the K-zone…..

  47. Ken

    September 26, 2010 at 2:49 pm

    Geez Im glad im not in a foxhole with some of you guys. Its the 4th inning. This team fights and claws. Game NOT over.

  48. Jeff

    September 26, 2010 at 2:55 pm

    choooooooooch

  49. Kate

    September 26, 2010 at 2:56 pm

    This ump has been messing with both pitchers today. The fans should turn to solidarity and start booing every call with no rhyme or reason. Close ones, sure, they can cheer if it benefits the Phils.

    Who is Chris Coons?

    Cole’d better get a standing O for his season.

  50. miked63

    September 26, 2010 at 2:57 pm

    Sup nation , ken is right far from over but I am a little concerned with offense lately , only been avg 3 runs or less the last 5 or 6 games.
    That inning was an example , no runs there again. I would rather peak in a couple weeks. I wonder if subconciously theyre playing with no sense of urgency cause they know theyre gonna win the division.

  51. Kate

    September 26, 2010 at 2:57 pm

    Good for you, fans!

    Better Herndon than Durbin, I guess.

  52. biz

    September 26, 2010 at 2:57 pm

    Jeff, My offer still stands. I’ll provide the shotgun and the slug.

  53. Andrew from waldorf

    September 26, 2010 at 2:58 pm

    ken he wasnt running hard though at the beginning

    hamels looked pissed all day

    Coons is running against odonnell in delaware

  54. Kate

    September 26, 2010 at 2:59 pm

    Better a sputter now than a sputter a week ago. We’ve already got the playoffs, if I’m not mistaken.

    I said two months ago if we squeeze in through the Wild Card, hey, we’re still playing in October. The same holds true now.

    October by any means necessary.

    … But we won’t need the Wild Card.

  55. Jeff

    September 26, 2010 at 3:00 pm

    use it on yourself biz. good luck on the date with your mom.

    phillies will lose until the braves series. that would be funny. biz shotguns are illegal.

  56. Kate

    September 26, 2010 at 3:01 pm

    Deal, Herndon, deal.

  57. sportsphan

    September 26, 2010 at 3:01 pm

    Kate: Chris Coons is a candidate for a Senate race in Delaware.

  58. Kate

    September 26, 2010 at 3:02 pm

    I love Victorino.

  59. Kate

    September 26, 2010 at 3:02 pm

    @Sportsphan and Andrew: Thanks. This is the first commercial I’ve seen for this guy.

  60. Andrew from waldorf

    September 26, 2010 at 3:10 pm

    @biz and Jeff
    We get it. Its amusing a little so do what you want but lets try to keep it mostly to the Phillies.

    I am off to watch the Eagles at my buddies

    GO PHILs
    they can come back

  61. JAY-AKA-PHILLYBOY

    September 26, 2010 at 3:10 pm

    HEY JEFF-HOW ARE YOUR GIANTS DOING?

  62. biz

    September 26, 2010 at 3:11 pm

    Jeff, not only are you a miserable prig, you’re a moron to boot. Shotguns are illegal where? DC? I got mine at Walmart.

    Seriously though. Kill yourself. The pain will stop there. I promise. It wont hurt anymore.

  63. Tracey

    September 26, 2010 at 3:11 pm

    @Kate: they expected Coons to be the Democratic sacrificial lamb against popular Mike Castle, and then Castle lost to anti-masturbation wingnut O’Donnell. Now the Delaware race is up in the air.

  64. Tracey

    September 26, 2010 at 3:11 pm

    I know the guy who was the Democratic sacrificial lamb against Castle in 1988, so I’m amused to see what’s going on in Delaware.

  65. Tracey

    September 26, 2010 at 3:12 pm

    Jeff, Biz, thanks for reminding my why I stopped coming here. The only thing worse than the trolls is the fans.

  68. Tracey

    September 26, 2010 at 3:15 pm

    I should go get the rally towels from my car — they worked at the last two games I attended, maybe they’ve still got some rally in them!

  69. biz

    September 26, 2010 at 3:15 pm

    Tracey, I apoligize. I can’t take Jeff and his constant complaints. Every body sucks, we’ll never win again, etc ad nausea.

    I just happen to think it would be in everyone’s best interest if he offed himself.

  70. Tracey

    September 26, 2010 at 3:16 pm

    Yikes… Polly doesn’t like that call…

  71. miked63

    September 26, 2010 at 3:17 pm

    That was a strike but this guys been very inconsistent

    We are officially in an offensive slump again. Teams hit in cycles , better to slump now than 2 weeks from now.

  72. miked63

    September 26, 2010 at 3:18 pm

    Come on Chase , 1 swing at were back in it. Give him the greenlite here

  73. JAY-AKA-PHILLYBOY

  78. Tracey

    September 26, 2010 at 3:20 pm

    Seriously, I went out to my car, brought in the rally towels from Monday and Friday night’s game, gave it a little twirl when I came back into the room (my cats think I am sooo weird)… and Chase immediately hit the HR!!!

  79. miked63

    September 26, 2010 at 3:21 pm

    September 26, 2010 at 3:27 pm

    (seriously, I wrote an app that uses MLB Gameday data to have Harry Kalas call the game for me, and Harry’s about two pitches ahead of TV…)

  85. Tracey

    September 26, 2010 at 3:27 pm

    That’s OK: Phils are BACK IN THE GAME! And Nats still up 2-1.

  86. biz

    Hey folks- lots of family obligation stuff today- nice to see both of my daughters.

    GO PHILS!!!!!!!!!!

    I’d be really interested in that app!

  88. Tracey

    September 26, 2010 at 3:39 pm

    RAUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUL!

  89. Tracey

    September 26, 2010 at 3:41 pm

    Aw, rats. Nats not getting our job done.

  90. Tracey

    September 26, 2010 at 3:57 pm

    7th Inning Stretch: Take me out to the ball… game!

  91. Tracey

    September 26, 2010 at 3:57 pm

    Take me out with the crowd!

  92. Tracey

    September 26, 2010 at 3:57 pm

    Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack…

  93. Tracey

    September 26, 2010 at 3:58 pm

    I don’t care if I EVER get back
    It’s just root, root root for the PHILLIES!!!

  94. Tracey

    September 26, 2010 at 3:58 pm

    If they don’t win, well that sucks!!!

  95. Kate

    September 26, 2010 at 4:14 pm

    Is this ump senile or something? Both starters were screwed and now it just seems to be the Phillies relief getting the squeeze.

  96. Kate

    September 26, 2010 at 4:14 pm

    Contreras has been dealing through two outs.

  97. Kate

    September 26, 2010 at 4:15 pm

    And the Nats are up 6-2, I believe.

  98. terri

    September 26, 2010 at 4:27 pm

    it’s 4-2 nats

  99. Tracey

    September 26, 2010 at 4:29 pm

    LET”S GO PHILLIES!!!!

  100. terri

    September 26, 2010 at 4:31 pm

    wow, did that just happen. I really hope this game isn’t a sign of things to come.

  101. Tracey

    September 26, 2010 at 4:33 pm

    “They have nothing to play for except pride. And they’ve shown some.” Yeah, but not enough…

  102. Kate

    September 26, 2010 at 5:16 pm

    I’m not worried.

    Playing in Washington the next three games is going to be almost like a home game.

  103. Manny

    September 26, 2010 at 5:27 pm

    I’m in DC so I’m excited about clinching here!

  104. terri

    September 26, 2010 at 5:40 pm

    if the Padres or Giants lose today, Phillies clinch a playoff berth.
