Cole Hamels (14-6, 3.03) vs. Edgar Gonzalez (2-0, 1.74)
The Astros ended the Phillies winning streak last night. The Phillies could not hold onto a four run lead. The goal is to start a new winning streak. The Phillies can’t afford to fall back under .500 again.
Philadelphia has a lot of confidence in Cole Hamels, who is looking for his 15th win, which would be a career high. Since July 27, Hamels is 3-1 with a 2.26 ERA. During that time frame, opponents are hitting just .229 with a .571 OPS against him.
Edgar Gonzalez was just recently promoted from Triple-A, and has succeed so far. Last night, the Phillies left a lot of men on base; tonight, the Phillies need to capitalize and drive in runners.
Get ready for some potent porter pungency. Troegs Dead Reckoning is unfiltered and weighs in at 5.8% abv and 53 IBU’s. It features Pilsner, Caramel, Chocolate and Roasted malts along with Chinook and Vanguard hops. Dark, thick, chocolatey; eat it with steak and potatoes. –By Pat Gallen
