Hell of a win last night boys, now make me look good!
The Phillies got some much needed offense in the 8-4 victory, but they’ll no doubt have a tough time matching that performance against tough lefty Clayton Kershaw. There is good news – Kershaw is 0-4 with a 6.31 ERA in six starts/nine appearances (regular and post-season combined) against the Phillies in his career. They know something about this hard throwing lefty, so let’s hope last night carries over.
Your Gameday Beer – UFO Hefeweizen
As the dogs days of summer continue to hover upon us, we’re going with smooth wheat beer for today’s afternoon game. It comes from Harpoon Brewery out of Boston and this is their Un-Filtered Offering. The sweet wheat malts help give the beer a light body and a similarly light citrus and yeast taste. It’s by far not the best Hefeweizen in the world, but it’s great for a steamy afternoon. With summer beer comes summer food, so have some chicken kabobs with it. – By Brian
