The Phillies are back above .500!  The goal is to stay above .500, and improve on that seven game winning streak.  The Phillies are back in the headlines with their recent surge, but they need to continue this momentum through September.

The odds are in favor of the Phillies in Houston, as the Astros have the worst record in baseball.  The Phillies have faced a string of last place teams recently, and so far they’ve capitalized.  They need to do the same in Houston, but it’s never automatic. As  Eric Seidman pointed out, the Astros have spoiled several seasons for the Phillies over the past decade.  Let’s hope the trend of the Astros beating up on the Phillies has ended.

Your Gameday Beer – Miller Genuine Draft
Good ole MGD, it always surprises when you can get this beer cheaper than Miller Lite, though it’s definitely not Miller’s best offering. It is heavily carbonated and has simple grain and corn flavoring. You know what you’re getting with this one – it’s an easy drinker. I like it with cheese (wiz) fries – By Brian
