Washington Nationals (77-47) at Philadelphia Phillies (58-67)
Edwin Jackson (7-8, 3.69) vs. Kyle Kendrick (6-9, 4.20)
The Nationals were expected to be an up and coming team. They were expected to be much improved, but I don’t think anybody expected them to have the best record in baseball at this point in the season. The Nationals stand 10.5 games ahead of the Phillies in the National League East.
Kyle Kendrick is coming off a great start against the Brewers. Kendrick’s starts are always unpredictable, as he needs to build consistency.
Lineup: SS Rollins, 3B Frandsen, 2B Utley, 1B Howard, RF Brown, CF Mayberry, LF Nix, C Kratz, P Kendrick.
Your gamenight beer: Dogfish Head, which makes many find beers, brings forth 90 Minute IPA, which is stronger than your 60 Minute, but it really tastes good. Between its nine percent content and superior satisfaction, it reminds you of a good Belgian brew. Perfect for a mild night like tonight. Eat some pork with it. -By Tim
