Friends, while you watch tonight’s game and scour the internet, please be sure to check out Tim Malcolm’s website as he travels the country. It’s RoadToHomePlate.com – he’s updating it every day as he travels from game to game, 11 in all, over 13 days. Give Tim your support!

Yesterday was a tough day for Vance Worley and the Phillies.  Bloop hits kept dropping in for the Reds.  With the score even in the ninth, Ryan Madson failed to escape a two-out, bases-loaded jam.  The Reds went on to win, but the Phillies look to take the series lead tonight.

Roy Halladay is on the mound for the Phillies, so there is no need to analyze tonight’s starter.  Everybody knows what he brings to the table.  In 4 career starts against Cincinnati, Halladay is 1-1 with a 2.84 earned run average.  He currently has an 18 consecutive scoreless inning streak against the Reds. Halladay also has a no-hitter on his resume against the Reds.

Travis Wood takes the ball for the Reds tonight, and he has struggled so far this year.  However, he pitched a near perfect game against the Phillies last season.  Wood lost his perfect game in the ninth inning as the Phillies sparked an amazing come from behind victory.  But with the way the Phillies bats have been going lately, don’t be surprised if Wood appears to be no-hittable again.

It’s worth noting that Ross Gload has a hip injury.  Ruben Amaro Jr. said that the injury is fairly serious, as it could nag Gload for the rest of the season.  Amaro mentioned that there is a tear, comparing it to Chase Utley’s injury in 2008.  Luckily, Gload will likely avoid the disabled list and should play soon.

It’s also worth mentioning that Jose Contreras will be activated from the disabled list tomorrow.

PHILLIES LINEUP:

Chase Utley and Domonic Brown are not in tonight’s lineup.

Rollins SS, Francisco RF, Polanco 3B, Howard 1B, Ibanez LF, Ruiz C, Mayberry CF, Valdez 2B, Halladay P

Your Gameday BeerHoegaarden
This was Phillies Nation’s featured beverage almost exactly one year ago: the day Roy Halladay pitched his perfect game.  With Roy Halladay on the mound tonight, it seems appropriate to relive that memory.  In addition, with Memorial Day approaching, good beer is a must.  “I’ve always like Hoegaarden, which can be enjoyed in small sips with good food. It flows smooth and tastes like citrus. Have some barbecue chicken with it,” said former Phillies Nation writer Tim Malcolm.

    @ Jeff
    Maybe Utley will come off the bench and limp around the bases with a game winning late home run
    Like kirk

    My mom is 68 and uses a walker
    has had 2 knee and foot surgeries and needs another

    Id take her in a foot race vs Ruiz

    The phils just match up well with teams like the Reds
    Teams with mediocre pitching and good line ups they feast on

    • Pat Gallen

      May 25, 2011 at 7:57 pm

      YOU PLAY TO WIN THE GAME!

      Gotta beat the teams you play and that’s what they’re doing.

  7. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 25, 2011 at 8:06 pm

    No doubt Pat.

    If the Phils played OJ at second and Manson at 3rd and won every game. Id be very happy.

    They do match up well with teams like the Reds and Brewers and not so much with teams like the Giants and Braves

    I tried to get one of my obnoxious friends from the world of Pearl jam blogs to come here
    and he couldnt navigate the site.

    Thats bad

    Update on Blanton – no surgery needed, he’ll start a throwing program in 3-4 weeks.

  10. Brooks

    May 25, 2011 at 8:42 pm

    Why is Ryan swining first pitch?

    Looks a little like last night, quick lead and quick brakes – nothing going on after the second.

    May 25, 2011 at 8:42 pm

    We instituted a new rule a the game watching party…

    Halladay Strike – drink
    Halladay K – chug

  22. Jeff

    May 25, 2011 at 9:13 pm

    so who do we blame for this lose. YES lose. Doc was handed a 3 run lead. No good. The offense once again craps its pants. 2 runs off the bat in the first and 1 the rest. my god. raul on third nobody out. mayberry is not worth a diaper. just amaing. trade howard and utley for bruce and votto.

  23. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 25, 2011 at 9:19 pm

  24. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 25, 2011 at 9:20 pm

  26. Jeff

    May 25, 2011 at 9:25 pm

    andrew trust me its a lose. this offense is poor. love watching rollins run to first with his head up his a………….howard i would drive to the airport and watch him get on the plane. i would trade howie for pence. not kidding. i hate howie.

  27. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 25, 2011 at 9:29 pm

  49. Brooks

    May 25, 2011 at 10:06 pm

    Yes Pat said it, its official – Bruce is the philly killer…
    Although the Phils pretty much screwed themselves over and over again

  50. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 25, 2011 at 10:07 pm

  51. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 25, 2011 at 10:08 pm

  52. Jeff

    May 25, 2011 at 10:10 pm

  65. Lefty

    May 25, 2011 at 10:28 pm

    The worst home plate ump of this year.
    The worst third base ump of this year.
    The worst first base ump of this year.

    I got no problem with the guy on second, but safe to say

    The worst umpiring crew of this year.

  66. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 25, 2011 at 10:30 pm

    Romero Baez and Herndon all still available
    the gas house gang is ready

  107. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 25, 2011 at 11:02 pm

    Any shot herndon can get a scoreless inning?

  108. Brooks

    May 25, 2011 at 11:02 pm

    Wow – I think DB has left more men in scoring position than he has atbats. Lots of opportunities for the kid to shine.

  109. Lefty

    May 25, 2011 at 11:03 pm

    May 25, 2011 at 11:09 pm

    In the grand scheme of things

    Phillips gettting picked off second in the middle of that mess
    maybe the worst play ever in MLB history

    • Lefty

      May 25, 2011 at 11:10 pm

      Couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy ! See the way he pushed Jimmy the other night?

  117. Lefty

    May 25, 2011 at 11:09 pm

    Polly, Howard, Ibanez- this might work out after all.

    No Gload so nobody else left, right? Oswalt to play left if someone gets hurt.

  118. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 25, 2011 at 11:09 pm

  121. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 25, 2011 at 11:12 pm

    Brooks this is why people get frustrated

    you have to be sitting dead red 3-1 there

    you cant swing and miss there

  122. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 25, 2011 at 11:14 pm

    No way Herndon and Baez keep shutting them down

    no way

    this is russian roulette

  123. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 25, 2011 at 11:16 pm

    Herndon has retired 4 straight
    can he get 7?

  124. Lefty

    May 25, 2011 at 11:17 pm

    And Hour number 4 comes to an end.

    Charlie never gives Howard the red light, he should though.

    herndon at 21 pitches.

  125. Brooks

    May 25, 2011 at 11:17 pm

    And in comes Dannys? Or will Herndon put a few on for him first?

  126. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 25, 2011 at 11:18 pm

    WOW

  127. Lefty

    Baez wont be so kind

  130. Lefty

    May 25, 2011 at 11:21 pm

    And we don’t have to pitch to Bruce this inning.

  131. Lefty

    May 25, 2011 at 11:23 pm

    Don’t forget we survived Bastardo tonight too. I’ll give him a pass, he’s been good, but not tonight.

  132. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 25, 2011 at 11:23 pm

    How come the girls that work at my Taco Bell never look like the girls in the commercials

  133. Lefty

    May 25, 2011 at 11:24 pm

    Must win it now, or face Bruce again.
    Gload can hit? I thought he was hurt.

  134. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 25, 2011 at 11:25 pm

  140. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 25, 2011 at 11:29 pm

    Baez is the last pitcher

  147. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 25, 2011 at 11:37 pm

    Is martinez the most useless player in the league?

  148. Brooks

    May 25, 2011 at 11:38 pm

    Truely truely impressed tonight by Herndon and Baez and when the papers report the game,
    Kendrick, Romero, Stutes, Madson and these 2 guys did awesome.

    May 25, 2011 at 11:39 pm

  168. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 12:06 am

    I may have to turn to hard drugs

    I feel bad for Baez

    he deserved better

  169. Brooks

    May 26, 2011 at 12:08 am

  170. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 12:12 am

    its shocking

  171. Brooks

    May 26, 2011 at 12:13 am

    Andrew I’m getting a little excited – maybe its the Skye

  172. Jeff

    May 26, 2011 at 12:15 am

    is it me or does it look strange the way brown catches easy pop ups. looks like its harder then it should be. someone score. pathetic.

  173. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 12:16 am

    Watch Baez get a hit LOL

    Havre a drink for me Brooks

  174. Brooks

    May 26, 2011 at 12:17 am

    look at these 3 coming up – Baez, Valdez, Martinez?

  175. Brooks

    May 26, 2011 at 12:18 am

    well Dannys has got the right idea – dont take the bat off your shoulder!

  176. Brooks

    May 26, 2011 at 12:18 am

    Oops

  177. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 12:20 am

  178. Brooks

    May 26, 2011 at 12:20 am

    Willsoooon

    OK, getting excited

  179. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 12:20 am

    at least martinez ran hard

  180. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 12:21 am

    just put one in the gap jimmy

  181. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 12:22 am

    holy cow

    I need to start smoking weed I think

    but it makes me paranoid

  182. Brooks

  183. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 12:23 am

    no lie

  184. Jeff

    May 26, 2011 at 12:23 am

    jimmy should rent a club after this game. i pray to the gods above he is gone after this year. wow is he bad at the plate. so bad my wife had to shake her head and say wow he is so bad. i said not bad. like eating at olive garden.

  185. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 12:23 am

    poooooooooooooooop uppppppppppppppppp

  186. Brooks

    May 26, 2011 at 12:24 am

    I’m trying to pull up the stats on this pitcher but cannot open a new window – something personal probably but he has thrown a ton of pitches too now. Carlos Fisher?

  187. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 12:25 am

    cy
    Baez

  188. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 12:26 am

  189. Jared

    May 26, 2011 at 12:28 am

    I’m following on gamecast, what is the Red’s BP situation? I assume Carlos Fisher isn’t the greatest hitter on earth…just a guess.

  190. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 12:30 am

    They are going with Fisher

    this is unbielavable

  191. Brooks

    May 26, 2011 at 12:31 am

    Brown, Poly and Howard – comon now end this damn thing!!!!!!!!!!

  192. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 12:31 am

    stop trying to hit homers guys

    I guess the reds got someone up

  193. Pat Gallen

    May 26, 2011 at 12:31 am

    I’m tired.

  194. Brooks

    May 26, 2011 at 12:32 am

    This guy has to be getting tired tooo comon!

  195. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 12:34 am

    im tired
    too tired to type almost lol

  196. Jared

    May 26, 2011 at 12:35 am

    Rolen still has a great glove. Makes everything look so easy.

  197. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 12:35 am

    I hope Lefty is still alive and kicking

  198. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 12:36 am

    I am already fat and now I am going to have to snack
    because of this mess

  199. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 12:37 am

    base runner!

  200. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 12:37 am

    I cant take it

    someone come beat me with a glove

  201. Brooks

    May 26, 2011 at 12:38 am

    Oh man, Raul you gotta be kidding

  202. Jeff

    May 26, 2011 at 12:38 am

    god you really see how pathetic this team is.

  203. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 12:40 am

    I know they used to have a rule that an inning wouldnt start after 1 am local time
    but i thnk they got rid of it

  204. Brooks

    May 26, 2011 at 12:41 am

    I looked up Carlos Fisher – he really is pushing beyond what he does, like Dannys actually –
    Unreal

  205. Brooks

    May 26, 2011 at 12:42 am

    Dannys at 61 pitches and get this – only 1 base runner so far.
    Impressive!

  206. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 12:42 am

    guys have to stop trying to hit a homer

  207. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 12:43 am

    make that 2

  208. Brooks

    May 26, 2011 at 12:43 am

    Well that was really stupid of me

  209. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 12:44 am

    and now the ump is hurt lol

  210. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 12:45 am

    Ruiz has caught this whole thing

    this is amazing

  211. Brooks

    May 26, 2011 at 12:48 am

    Dannys!!!!!!!!!!!

  212. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 12:48 am

    ruiz has caught 300 pitches

    i thought martinez was gonna miss that lol

    please take baez out

    i really dont want him to take a L

  213. Jared

    May 26, 2011 at 12:48 am

    Serious Question: Is this outing saving Baez’s job?

  214. Brooks

    May 26, 2011 at 12:49 am

    Who’s left to replace Dannys?
    I think this is it

  215. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 12:51 am

    cy baez

    who will pitch next inning if needed?

  216. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 12:52 am

    and no one is warming up

    a position player?

    Baez wins some points for this. Job save i dunno

  217. ChuckS

    May 26, 2011 at 12:52 am

    chooch to pitch

  218. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 12:52 am

  220. Jared

    May 26, 2011 at 12:53 am

    Looks like Batting Practice in the 19th for the Reds.

  221. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 12:53 am

    chcuk S a little late to the party lol
    but welcome aboard!

    12 hours to opening pitch

  222. Brooks

    May 26, 2011 at 12:54 am

    I do believe this is the 18th inning – holy crap

  223. Brooks

    May 26, 2011 at 12:54 am

    I would guess Sardine will stay in for Chooch – nice effort there Sardino

  224. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 12:56 am

    Come on mini mart

  225. Andrew From Waldorf

  226. ChuckS

    May 26, 2011 at 12:56 am

    • Brooks

      May 26, 2011 at 1:04 am

  231. Brooks

  232. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 1:02 am

    Valdez throwing 90 lol

  233. Brooks

    May 26, 2011 at 1:02 am

    Cholly has done his best to give this game to the Reds hasn’t he?

  234. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 1:03 am

    I cant believe direct tv screwed me like this

    1 out for valdez

    • HotDogs

      May 26, 2011 at 1:06 am

      Replace Romero with Valdez!!!!!

  235. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 1:04 am

    he got JFB too!

  236. Brooks

    May 26, 2011 at 1:05 am

    Maaan, he got Bruce out!

  237. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 1:05 am

    florida is going to win

    i cant FING believe direct tv cut off

  238. Brooks

    May 26, 2011 at 1:05 am

    And now he faces the pitcher – wow

  239. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 1:05 am

    Cy Valdez LOLOLOL

  240. Jared

    May 26, 2011 at 1:07 am

    Maybe DirecTV game went out and switched to the MLB network?

  241. ChuckS

    May 26, 2011 at 1:08 am

    could you imagine a Wilson Valdez winning pitcher?

  242. Brooks

    May 26, 2011 at 1:08 am

    OK, Rollins, Brown, Poly then the Big man – got to end this now, the thoght of Valdez pitching another inning is making me ill

  243. bacardipr05

    May 26, 2011 at 1:08 am

    Wow Valdez got the Reds best hitters out…we have a new reliever in Exxon Valdez…Yeah Baby…lmao…

  244. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 1:09 am

    anyone else who has direct tv

    if you goto 720 the game mix you can see it in the little box

    with the reds announcers

    but you cant get the game on 739 which it is listed as

  245. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 1:11 am

    ok lets do this!

  246. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 1:12 am

    maybe this is what we need to score
    me watching in a little box with the reds announcers

  247. Brooks

    May 26, 2011 at 1:12 am

    I wouldnt count on Wilson for another inning and maybe we dont have to. Fisher has not thrown 90 pitches in his career – he has to be gassed

  248. Brooks

    May 26, 2011 at 1:13 am

    Lets go Poly!

  249. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 1:14 am

    Reds have 2 guys in pen

    announcers saying they must not be available

    but they dont knwo why

  250. Brooks

    May 26, 2011 at 1:14 am

    OK Ok OK – second and third and 1 out – this HAS to be it!

  251. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 1:15 am

    Valdez in line for that all imprrtant win
    come on!

  252. Brooks

    May 26, 2011 at 1:15 am

    Oh man – bases loaded for the only spark of May offensively, Raul Ibanez (I’m trying)

  253. Brooks

    May 26, 2011 at 1:16 am

    Got a speedster on third, just hit a fly ball damnit

  254. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 1:16 am

    winner winner chicken dinner

    reds announcers saying how embarrassing it is
    all time they are saying

    the Phillips play is one of the most disgraceful ever

    If he was a phil and they lost this id be livid

  255. Brooks

    May 26, 2011 at 1:16 am

    Yeeeeahhh!!

    Where in the hell is JAY!

  256. Jeff

    May 26, 2011 at 1:20 am

    OH MY GOD. As much as I kill Wilson he had me on the floor tonight. fun fun fun. He loved it. Stick him in the pen. LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL….WOW..Bad game for the batting averages.

  257. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 1:22 am

    Im picking up Valdez and Baez in fantasy as we speak

  258. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 1:23 am

    Charlie Manuel is a magician
    He knew all along he was using Valdez in the 19th

  259. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 1:24 am

    and the giants just tied the marlins
    with 4 in the 9th off nunez!

  260. Brooks

    May 26, 2011 at 1:27 am

    This game was a disgrace but a great win too – Phils had way many chances and blew them all, so did the Reds – hey, we gave the game away and they didn’ t take it.
    How do you rate this?

    You take anything good from it, what a job by Baez (can he or will he repeat this?)
    Where did Wilson’s effort come from? I dont want to see it again, that means we’d have to endure this same kind of craziness… no thanks.

    No offense, nail biting pitching, bad fielding and yet a win. Take it and start again in less than 12 hours. Oh boy.

  261. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 1:30 am

    Great news conference from the old man
    he always makes me laugh

  262. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 1:38 am

    JC Romero needs to be the one optioned not Herndon today

  263. Phylan

    May 26, 2011 at 1:46 am

    Just popping in to say that I take back everything I have ever said about Wilson Valdez. Well, most of it.

  264. Andrew From Waldorf

    May 26, 2011 at 1:49 am

    I cant believe I am watching Marlins Giants now

    OK so who is going to be more tired today?
    Phils?
    Reds?
    Andrew (way to stick in there) – I know I have the option of a nap today –

    Looks like the cream is starting to rise to the top? Red Sox crushed the soon to be fraud Indians last night 14-2. Lester won again, Ortiz is hitting over .300, AGON .340 (43 rbi to boot), Ellsbury at .295 and Crawford, after a terrible start was 4 for 4 starting to rip into it.

    BTW – the Sox are a half a game out of first place. Tell you what, I am looking forward to that series at the end of June that will be some fun.
